Posted Oct 26, 2015 at 7:00am

As we announced last month, Joe Satriani will launch his “Surfing to Shockwave” 2016 tour February 25 in Seattle, Washington.

Today, however, Satriani announced several additional dates in the East coast, Midwest and Canada, continuing the tour through April 24 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The 45-date tour celebrates “30 Years of Mind-Bending Guitar Daredevilry,” a phrase coined last year by Rolling Stone. It launches February 25 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, crosses the U.S., dipping into Canada, and ending April 24.

You can check out all the dates, plus a new announcement video by Satriani, below.

Shockwave Supernova reached Satriani’s highest chart position, debuting at Number 19 on Billboard’s Top 200 Current Albums Chart. It also debuted at Number 3 on the Billboard Rock Chart and ranks as the highest-charting all-instrumental rock album on Billboard’s Top 200 in the SoundScan era.

Satch’s touring band remains Marco Minnemann on drums, Bryan Beller on bass and Mike Keneally on keys and guitar.

Tickets for the new dates will be on sale October 30 with exclusive meet-and-greet and VIP packages available. For details, visit satriani.com.
