World-renowned guitar virtuoso, Joe Satriani, announces the release of his 16th solo album, What Happens Next, set for release, January 12, 2018 on Sony/Legacy Recordings.

In addition, Satriani will revive his G3 tour entity in 2018 beginning March 16th in Moscow and winding up on April 30th in Birmingham playing shows in many European countries, including the UK. France, Italy, Spain, Poland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland and more.  Satriani has invited Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and the former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth to join him.

Planet Rock Radio will run a 24-hour ticket pre-sale for the UK concerts from Thursday November 9th at 10am via www.planetrock.com. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public from 9am on Friday November 10th from www.ticketline.co.ukwww.ticketmaster.co.ukwww.seetickets.com, and direct from the venues.

Each guitarist will perform their own set, followed by a massive jam at the end of the show.

Since its debut in 1996, SATRIANI’s G3 tour has featured the world’s greatest guitarists (everyone from Steve Vai and Eric Johnson to Steve Lukather and Robert Fripp) and has become a consistent concert hall sell-out attraction in the U.S., South America, Europe, Australia and Japan. “I could say that I’m surprised at the durability of G3 and how much it’s grown, but in a way I’m not,” SATRIANI says with a laugh, “I think part of its charm and its mojo is in the chemistry of having three top guitarists share what they do on stage. It’s fun, it’s unpredictable, it’s wild – it’s everything you could want in a show.”

In addition to this new album and exciting tour news, a new documentary “Beyond the Supernova” shot by SATRIANI’s filmmaker son, ZZ, makes its debut at the Mill Valley Film Festival this October. The tour documentary chronicles Joe, along with his band and crew, on their last “Shockwave Supernova” tour throughout Europe and Asia.

Satriani’s new, instrumentally electrifying album features a power trio of legendary status; Satriani on guitar and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple/Black Country Communion) and drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), the latter reuniting with Satriani for the first time since their work in the supergroup ChickenfootSatriani is once again joined by producer/engineer/mixer Mike Fraser, his frequent collaborator over the last 20 years, on What Happens Next. Fraser is well-known for recording/mixing every AC/DC album since 1990’s The Razors Edge along with his classic works with Satriani going back to the release of Crystal Planet in 1998.

The new tracks vibrate the soul with an energy rarely found these days. From the dynamic opening track, Energy, to the majestic crunch of Thunder High on the Mountain, and the easy, sensual chords of Smooth Soul. This unparalleled rock-rhythm section gives What Happens Next a depth of groove that sets it apart from Satriani’s previous work.
