Steve Vai Australian Tour Announced

steve-vaiSteve Vai is about to return to Australia with his full solo show for the first time since 2004. Sure, he’s been here quite often lately – with G3, with Zappa Plays Zappa and to give a Masterclass – but it’s been nine years since Vai played an entire show dedicated to his particular and peculiar brand of musical madness. I spoke to Steve this morning and that interview will be up on the site in a couple of weeks (we talked a lot about 7 and 8-string guitars, by the way). But in the meantime, here are the tour dates:

PERTH CONCERT HALL WEDNESDAY JULY 10
ADELAIDE HER MAJESTY’S THEATRE FRIDAY JULY 12
MELBOURNE PALAIS THEATRE SATURDAY JULY 13
CANBERRA CANBERRA THEATRE SUNDAY JULY 14
SYDNEY ENMORE THEATRE MONDAY JULY 15
BRISBANE QPAC CONCERT HALL TUESDAY JULY 16

steve-vai-1Steve’s band for the tour is Dave Weiner on guitar, Jeremy Colson on drums, Philip Bynoe on bass and Michael Arrom on keyboards. Once a concert ticket has been purchased, Vai fans are eligible for a unique and special premium package – the EVO Experience – which includes a meet and greet pass, a Q&A session with Steve Vai, access to sound check, an exclusive EVO Experience laminate and other Vai merchandise items.
