In support of his 19th full length album, The Elephants of Mars, guitar sensation Joe Satriani has booked a 44-date tour throughout the U.S. and Canada, which will launch in late September.

On this run, which stretches from Sept. 21 through Nov. 19 with just one stop across the northern border in Toronto, Ontario, Satriani will be flanked by drummer Kenny Aronoff, bassist Bryan Beller and keyboardist Rai Thistlewayte, which positions the group as a dynamic four-piece.

Now able to get out from beneath the effects the pandemic had on live music, Satriani is finally set to return to the road in 2022 after not doing any major touring since the back half of 2018 in support of the What Happens Next album. Shapeshifting, the Satch album that preceded the forthcoming The Elephants of Mars, came out in April of 2020, right in the thick of the early lockdown period worldwide, which stifled the release plans of countless artists.

See the complete list of 2022 tour dates below and look for tickets to go on sale on April 1 at Satriani's website.
