Joe Satriani’s 1987 Surfing With the Alien was a pivotal release in the instrumental rock-guitar wave that broke through commercially in the late ’80s and early ’90s. The melodic shredders on that album and those that followed were ear candy for lovers of riffs that were both infectiously catchy and technically dazzling. Satriani conceived of the G3 tour in 1996 as a showcase for instrumental guitar. This year’s cavalcade of in-your-face guitar histrionics will again be headlined by the Bay Area guitarist, with support from John Petrucci of progmetal stalwart Dream Theater and Def Leppard’s Phil Collen. If past G3 tours are any indication, the three-hour celebration of rock guitar will inevitably conclude in an overwhelming jam session.
