Steve Vai Set to Return to UK -
Guitar virtuoso and Issue 12 cover artist Steve Vai is set to return to UK shores at the end of the month (August) for series of shows which will stretch from Glasgow to Bournemouth.
The newly announced dates are as a result of the success of his Story of Light world tour in support of his eighth studio album, The Story of Light.
The concept for Story of Light follows the journey of a man “driven mad by grief, intertwining tragedy, revelation, enlightenment and redemption.”
The Story of Light is the second instalment of the Real Illusions trilogy, a "multi-layered melange based on the amplified mental exaggerations of a truth-seeking madman who sees the world through his own distorted perceptions" as described in the album’s booklet introduction.
Tickets for the show are now on sale with a premium EVO Experience package, including meet-and-greet, Q&A, sound check access and more, available exclusively via Vai’s website.
