It has been announced that ex-Dixie Dregs/current Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse will be appearing on the European leg of the 2012 G3 tour.
G3 is somewhat of an institution among Joe Satriani fans. The Chickenfoot guitarist founded the “G3” tour many years ago as a vehicle to appear in a live setting alongside other world-class guitarists. Previous tours have often also featured Steve Vai, who is also set to appear on the upcoming tour. Other notable previous G3 participants have included Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen and Paul Gilbert.
So far, these dates have been confirmed for the 2012 tour:
Jul. 21 – Offenbach, Germany
Jul. 23 – München, Germany
Jul. 24 – Hamburg, Germany
Aug. 01 – Budapest, Hungary
Aug. 05 – Moscow, Russia
More dates to be announced later.
