Steve  Vai  is  a  virtuoso  guitarist,  visionary  composer,  and  consummate  producer  who  sculpts musical sound with infinite creativity and technical mastery.  At  age  12,  he  started  taking  guitar  lessons  from  Joe  Satriani.   At  18,  he  began  his  professional musical career transcribing for, and then playing with, the legendary Frank Zappa.  More than three  decades,  15  million  album  sales  and  three  GRAMMY  Awards  later,  Vai  continues  to  use unbridled guitar virtuosity and soulful artistry to explore the spectrum of human emotion.  He has proven himself, in his own right, to be one of music’s true originals.  “I make music to push my own buttons,” explains Vai.  “I’ve always been driven by an addiction to create sounds that are unique — not better than what other people do, just different.” That obsession remains the guiding force behind Vai’s ongoing musical evolution and what he loves most about being a musician. “For me, the real gravy is when I hear a strange or beautiful sound in my head and then make it  real  in  the  world  using  the  devices  I  have  as  a  musician,”  says  Vai.    “The  things  that  have never been done before are what interest me most.”

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of his landmark album, Passion and Warfare, Steve Vai embarks on a very special world tour celebrating one of the greatest instrumental rock guitar recordings of all time.
