Live Nation are excited to announce the forthcoming Steve Vai ‘Inviolate’ tourwhich sees Steve and his long-tenured ensemble playing shows in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth for the first time since their highly successful shows in 2013.
Steve Vai has awed fans of all genres with his exceptional guitar skills and musicianship for decades.
With a career spanning over 40 years and considered by many as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Steve Vai has sold over 15 million records, received three Grammy Awards, and recorded with music legends like Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, WHITESNAKE and many more.
Vai has also toured extensively and recorded live projects with ‘G3’ (collaborating with different touring line-ups, including Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Lukather) and ‘Generation Axe’, a supergroup Vai formed with Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi.
Over the past two years, Vai released a new studio album titled ‘Inviolate’ and a record titled ‘Vai/Gash’ which he had been holding in his archive for three decades. In support of both releases, Vai embarked on a world Tour in 2022 that will take the better part of 2 years and see the band play more than 200 shows.
