Virtuoso guitarist and visionary composer Steve Vai has just announced his official 2012 North American tour.
You read that right. Steve Vai. My first roommate in college loved Steve Vai. That same dude would also eat cheese sandwiches while watching reruns of “Doogie Howser, M.D.” and scratching the bottoms of his bare feet with a garden rake.
He was weird. He lasted one semester.
Steve will be touring in support of the upcoming release The Story of Light, a new solo album of original material that will be released on August 14 through Favored Nations Entertainment.
Those dates follow at the end of this post.
The tour kicks off August 15 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
