Retrospectively supporting his debut album Not of This Earth, this new concert experience promises to showcase music from his entire three-decade career, even those that he hasn't performed over the last two.

The man behind the axe
Satriani started his music career as a guitar instructor before going on to tour with the likes of Mick Jagger for the latter's first solo tour, Brian May and Steve Morse during the Eighties and Nineties. When out of the recording studio or not touring he continues to keep his hectic work pace up by perfecting his own signature range of Ibanez guitars, the JS Series as well as his own distortion pedals.
Satriani is currently the lead guitarist for the group Chickenfoot, a hard rock band hailing from the USA and made up of several other rock icons including Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith. Citing major influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore and Jeff Beck, he has mastered a huge range of picking skills, and is famed for his prodigious skill in tapping, volume swells and legato, to name a few.
Performance date: 26 September 2013
