Event Details

Satriani will be joined on the highly anticipated tour by fellow six-string legends JOHN PETRUCCI and PHIL COLLEN.

“G3 tours are always very exciting, challenging and a lot of fun for me,” says Satriani. “I love any chance I get to stand on stage and play for my fans, but I especially love the crazy jolt I get when I can perform alongside other guitarists I admire. It ups my game, it ups their game, and I know our audiences always get a real kick out of the whole experience.”

John Petrucci has a long history with G3 – the Dream Theater founder and guitar virtuoso made his maiden voyage on the tour in 2001, and the 2018 trek will mark his seventh appearance on the bill. “I always look forward to having John on any G3 tour I do,” says Satriani. “He continues to be one of the most incredible and inspiring guitarists I’ve ever played with, and he never fails to do things on stage that I find utterly jaw dropping. I can only imagine what new surprises he’s got planned for this tour.”

Petrucci echoes Satriani’s effusive praise, calling the guitarist “one of the best and most creative players I’ve ever heard, and I just love him as a person, too.” He looks back at his past six G3 tours with considerable pride, saying, “They’ve been some of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. I’ve been able to go all over the world with Joe and other great guitarists, and I’ve been able to expose my fans to another side of me with my solo work. And I think I’ve picked up some new fans along the way – they see me on G3 and then they go out and check out Dream Theater. So it’s exciting in that way, too.”

2018 will see Phil Collen making his debut as a G3er. The venerable guitarist joined Def Leppard in 1982 and has been a key part of their worldwide multi-platinum success story, but he’s rarely stepped out as a solo axeman in his own right. “That’s what’s going to be so interesting and cool,” Satriani notes. “We think of Phil as being this integrated part of Def Leppard, but I recently got a chance to play with him at my latest G4 Experience in California, a
