Chickenfoot’s Joe Satriani to Launch Solo Tour in August

Joe Satriani is hitting the road for a solo tour this summer. The Chickenfoot guitarist has just announced a string of dates to support his upcoming album, Unstoppable Momentum , due out May 7.

The North American trek kicks off on August 29 at the Balboa Theatre in San Diego, California, and will make stops Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, Houston and New York, among other cities. Joining Satriani on the road is Frank Zappa / Steve Vai keyboardist Mike Keneally , Dweezil Zappa / Dethklok bassist Bryan Beller , and Adrian Belew / Steve Wilson drummer  Marco Minnemann .

In addition to giving fans the chance to pre-order Unstoppable Momentum at his website, Satriani is offering up a limited edition, autographed 98-page art book. Titled Joe's Art 2013 , the book features never-before-seen drawings, doodles and sketches by the guitarist.

"Some of my drawings have made their way on to guitars, straps and picks, LP and CD booklets, t-shirts, hats, key chains, etc. and even my live stage productions," says Satriani in a statement.  "This book represents my first effort to finally compile my oddly drawn friends into one place, a wildly colorful portfolio of sorts. A collection of drawings meant to inspire and entertain."
