MESSAGE FROM JOE
It's February, and this an email up date from yours truly Joe
Satriani... Let me tell you first, that Steve Vai and I had a fine
and good time playing "Super Colossal" for the Grammy Pre-Tel
audience at the Grammys this past weekend. Here's a mini photo as
The Pre-Tel is where four thousand or so members gather to celebrate
and give out awards for 97 of the 108 Grammy categories. These are
not televised, mostly because it would make show about 7 hours long!
It's low key, but, taken quite seriously, by some.
Although a good time was had by all, I did in fact not win a Grammy.
Yes, for the fourteenth time! But, many fine people did, which is
While sitting through the three hour Grammy show I got a chance to
chat with Jack White and the Raconteurs, Susan Tedeschi, Nelly and
other notables. Some say they caught a glimpse of me on TV wearing
my black hat. There's a funny story about that, but I'll get to
that some other time...
The news on the G3 tour is that we will offer "CLUB JOE," a new
meet and greet experience. "CLUB JOE" guests will receive a 60
minute Q&A and autograph session with me, a personal photograph, a
guided tour of my on-stage "Guitar World' and an autographed copy
of my new double DVD "Satriani Live". Plus, two lucky guests will
be brought back onstage to watch the show's encore from the side
of the stage!
John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert and I are really looking forward to
going head to head, toe to toe and string to string all across the
USA and Canada. Come on out and help us write a new chapter in G3

SATRIANI TICKET PRE-SALE INFO REMINDER
As reminder, we often provide links to exclusive online ticket presales
for Joe's shows. This last tour we've been working very closely with
the fine folks at Entourage Talent who book Joe's tours and are making
great progress in bringing all of these presales to you on a regular
basis. It can be a very complicated process to work with different local
promoters for each show, but we've been updating SATRIANI.COM with updated
information on a daily basis, so we hope regular visitors have been
appreciating these efforts.
So, keep this in mind for the future and check the site regularly if
you are interested in picking up advance tickets for future shows.
Since the leadtime is often not enough time to send out email blasts,
checking the web site is the best way to be sure you catch them.
We also have plans to do more targeted emails to members who are signed
up to this newsletter so that instead of filling up everyone's email
all around the world with details on a single city's presale information,
we only let you know based on the city/state/zip information in your profile.
If you'd like to get immediate notice of Internet pre-sales direct to your
email, please take a moment to update your member profile with accurate
information. We're hoping to start this for the next major tour, so do
it now! :}
