Virtuoso guitarist, composer and producer, Steve Vai is pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at the Limelight on Saturday 11th June 2022 as part of the Inviolate World Tour. He’ll be on the road into mid-July, staging performances in the U.K., Ireland, France, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain.
Vai will be joined by his long-tenured ensemble members Dave Weiner (guitar / keys), Philip Bynoe (bass), and Jeremy Colson (drums). Vai shares, “It’s amazing to realize that after three years of not performing our show on a stage, that it’s now on the horizon, and will start to unfold in Europe this summer. I can feel the road now and the enthusiastic audiences that we will be connecting with.”
Favored Nations / Mascot Label Group released his new studio titled Inviolate on 28 January (The LP will follow on March 18). Later this year, Vai will stage 52 performances in the U.S. from 28 September in El Cajon, CA through 3 December in Los Angeles, CA. The excursion will take him coast to coast.
