After the five dates in our country that saw him among the protagonists last summer, Steve Vai announces a second round of the European tour dedicated to his most recent work Inviolate with two stops in Italy next spring: Friday 7 April 2023 at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan and Saturday 8 April at the Palazzo del Turismo in Jesolo (VE). Tickets for both concerts - as well as special VIP packages - will be available on Ticketone from 12 noon on Friday 20 January.

The tour will start in Lisbon on 24 March and will travel through Spain, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Slovakia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Romania, the Czech Republic, Poland, Latvia and Estonia before concluding in Helsinki on 7 May.

Steve Vai says: "Our previous autumn tour in North America was outstanding. The band and I are more trained and ready than ever. I'm excited to finally bring Hydra to Europe, I missed it on the last tour in Europe. The audience response to Inviolate was tremendously positive and we saw it in the press, in the numbers and in the energy of the audience and we are looking forward to this European tour."

Next 27 January he will release Vai / Gash, an album he has kept in his drawer for more than three decades. "Vai / Gash was written and recorded as a kind of stream of consciousness in 1991, over the course of about two weeks, as a response to my desire to have a particular kind of music to listen to while riding my Harley Davidson with my friends. One of them was John "Gash" Sombrotto, the powerful voice you can hear on this record. It is reminiscent of a certain type of rock music that I enjoyed as a teenager in the 1970s. These recordings have been on the shelf for over 30 years and will be released now, in 2023'. So far, three songs have been extracted from the album: She Saved My Life Tonight, In The Wind and Busted.
