Joe Satriani, one of rock music's most respected electric guitar players, is set to perform at the Beacon Theatre on September 26. In concert, Joe will be joined by Marco Minnemann (drums), Bryan Beller (bass) and Mike Keneally (keys) with a special opening performance by the Steve Morse Band, featuring Deep Purple and Dixie Dregs guitarist Steve Morse.
Recently, Satriani confirmed the release of his 14th studio album, Unstoppable Momentum, set for May 7 on Epic Records. The new disc was produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC) and features Vinnie Colauita (Sting, Jeff Beck) on drums, Chris Chaney (Janes Addiction) on bass and Mike Keneally (Dethklok) on keys.
For two decades, Satriani has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star "G3" guitar extravaganza. His studio and live recordings have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide to date and of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them. His side project, Chickenfoot, featuring former Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith saw their debut album certified gold and their second studio album debuted at #9. In late 2010, music sensation Nicki Minaj sampled the classic Satriani song, "Always With Me Always With You" in her song, "Right Through Me" from her multi-platinum debut album. In 2011, Satriani recreated his National Anthem performance for the Opening Day of the Oakland A's historic 2002 season in the Brad Pitt movie Moneyball.
Steve Morse's career encompasses a blend of rock, country, funk, jazz, and classical, and continues to push boundaries and take chances. In addition to a thriving solo career, Morse is known for his work with jazz fusion pioneers Dixie Dregs, progressive rock mainstays KANSAS and with metal icons Deep Purple. His accolades include winning Guitar Player's "Best Overall Guitarist" poll for five years running and six Grammy nominations.
