Have guitar, will travel! Steve Vai is set to scorch North American stages this summer as part of his 2023 Inviolate World Tour. The guitar great just revealed 26 new North American stops that will keep him stateside through the summer.

This comes on the heels of previously announced shows in South America and Mexico that will fill the month of June, kicking off June 3 in Sao Paolo, Brazil. As for the North American run, you can look for Vai launching the run July 16 in Tucson, Arizona, with shows booked through an Aug. 19 finale in Monterey, California. See all of the dates, cities and venues listed down toward the bottom of this post.

The tour comes in support of Vai's Inviolate album, while the guitarist also released the collaborative Vai/Gash album as well earlier this year. You can get tickets and a variety of EVO Experience VIP bundle packages through Vai's website.

Back in February, Vai was asked about what's on his horizon. At the time, he told Full Metal Jackie, "A lot of tour prepping right now to continue the Inviolate tour because I had a solo record that came out a year ago. I've been touring my butt off on that. We did a wonderful run of Europe, a really great run in America and in March I go back out to Europe and Eastern Europe for a couple of months. Then I come back and I'm doing another American leg for about two-and-a half months. Then in August it's South America and Mexico and right after that, it's Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Asia... all those wonderful places. I think we're going to end it with Africa and India and by that time it'll be next Christmas." So stay tuned as more touring is yet to come.
