Live Nation is proud to announce the return of virtuoso guitarist and visionary composer
STEVE VAI when he embarks on a national headline theatre tour this July.
A sculptor of musical sound, with infinite creativity and technical mastery, with a career spanning three decades, more
than 15 million album sales and three Grammy Awards, Steve Vai embodies the seamless, symbiotic union between man
and guitar, bending sounds as much as audiences’ minds.
A regular on our shores as part of the incredible G3 line up, Vai will command the stage for well over two hours, joined by
his band: Dave Weiner on guitar, Jeremy Colson on drums, Philip Bynoe on bass and Michael Arrom on keyboards.
Beginning at age 12, Steve Vai started taking lessons from Joe Satriani and by 18 he had begun his professional music
career transcribing for, and eventually playing, recording and touring with, the legendary Frank Zappa. In 1984 Vai
branched out on his own before joining Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth’s solo band and Whitesnake, quickly earning guitar
superstar status and the #1 spot in guitar magazine polls.
1990 saw the release of Vai’s groundbreaking album ‘Passion and Warfare’. Drawing critical acclaim and commercial
success, the album cemented Vai’s standing as one of the top guitarists in the world.
Vai’s prolific creativity has built an extensive discography of more than 60 albums featuring solo works, several musical
contributions to film soundtracks including the theme to Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, as well as guesting on numerous
albums by fellow artists. Most recently Vai delivered ‘The Story of Light’ (Sony Music Aust.), his 16th solo album.
In addition to his recordings, Vai has created several lines of signature guitars through Ibanez, including 1985 original
JEM guitar and the first commercial seven-stringed electric guitar.
