Vai shares: "Our previous fall tour of North America was outstanding. Myself and the band are as oiled up and ready as ever. I'm excited to finally bring the Hydra guitar to Europe as I missed doing that on the last EU run. The response from 'Inviolate' was tremendously positive and it showed in the press, the attendances and the energy in the audience and we are so much looking forward to this EU tour."
This past year, Vai released a new studio album titled "Inviolate". In support of the release, he staged successful tours of North America and Europe. This year, plans will take the guitarist, composer, and songwriters to most continents across the world as he continues to stage events on the "Inviolate" world tour.
Favored Nations / Mascot Label Group presented the official music video for "Teeth Of The Hydra", which has now been viewed over 5.3 million times. Later this month, Steve will release "Vai / Gash", an album he's held in the archive for more than three decades.
