Steve Vai has announced an extensive tour of the U.S., with 54 scheduled appearances confirmed. Vai‘s “Inviolate” world tour will begin at House Of Blues in Las Vegas on January 27, 2022, and wrap in Los Angeles on April 2 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel.

The general on-sale will go live on September 17, at, with a VIP pre-sale available on September 15.

A variety of EVO Experience VIP bundles are available. EVO Experience offerings, dependent upon tier purchased, include signed JEM Jr. guitars; an invitation to a pre-show group question-and-answer session, meet-and-greet and photo with Steve; soundcheck viewing access; a guided tour of Steve‘s instruments and gear; exclusive merchandise; commemorative VIP laminates and access to premium tickets.

This run is the first excursion of many planned which together are a multi-faceted world tour that will bring the guitarist and composer to most continents across the globe touching down in dozens of countries. Vai has been working on a new studio album and those details will be shared imminently. These appearances will present an all-new show featuring a lot of new music, with plans for performances to be staged for the next several years.

This past April, Vai launched a Patreon page where he has regularly conducted exclusive one-hour question & answer sessions and more for a $5.00 monthly commitment. His on-going series “Alien Guitar Secrets Live” now premieres on Patreon, with a focus on the guitar, music, his career and the business aiming to offer insights that enlighten perspectives for their own worlds. He breaks down various songs from his catalog to show techniques, and discusses anything from writing, recording, publishing, promoting, and touring.  Additionally, the series “Under It All: Hard Questions,” enables Vai to engage in more esoteric life principles and topics where no question is off limits.  Many of his filmed interviews include his perspective on deeper subjects, and comment boards frequently allude to a broad interest in further exploration of his personal thoughts. Whether sharing detail on his observations surrounding life, the creative process, spirituality or the human condition, “UIA” delves into opinion that’s led by the free form forum. 

Vai will be joined by his long-tenured ensemble members Dave Weiner (guitar, keyboards), Philip Bynoe (bass) and Jeremy Colson (drums).

Vai shares: “A performer thrives on performing. It’s been my life for the past 49 years, with the exception of the last two years, so we are chomping at the bit to get out there and play for people. A music concert has the ability to dissolve the many challenges we face, and celebrate one of the good things in life, live music.”
