Home. Rest. Then: More Satriani (Europe) & Aristocrats (S.E. Asia) Touring, Because Of Course.

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

A few months ago I announced that I’d be touring for three months straight with The Aristocrats in the U.S., Mexico, and then Europe, and I asked the question: Would I survive? Well, I survived, and the tour was beyond amazing, and thank you to EVERYONE who came out and made it a success…but in the end there was a lot of this:

Real men wear nap hats with tassles on top.

But in the end it was, like I said, amazing that this band that started from nothing could tour for as long as we did and have people showing up wherever we went. Here’s a shot from the last night of the whole damned thing, in Tel Aviv, Israel in front of about 600 people.

And here’s a bonus shot of me looking all like, f*ck yeah.

As Guthrie would say: It’s almost like a proper job.

So now I’m home resting for a glorious six weeks (!) before heading back out on the road again, first with Joe Satriani in Europe (with a brief stop in the United States Northeast), and then with The Aristocrats in Southeast Asia, to some truly exotic locales. Observe:

It’s somehow fitting that we’re going back to Southeast Asia at what appears to be the near-final leg of the “Culture Clash” tour, because that’s where it all began – we went to Korea and Japan in July of 2011, two months before our debut album was even out! It’s been a wild ride since then, and I’m grateful for all of it.

OK, back to recovering now. See you when I’m tan, rested and ready.
