Steve Vai to return to the UK this August

steve-vaiAmerican virtuoso guitar player Steve Vai will return to the UK  at the end of August (2013) after the success of his Story of Light world tour and eighth studio album, ‘The Story of Light’.

Vai’s newly announced tour will cover the length and breadth of the UK, including visits to Glasgow, Leeds, Belfast, Cardiff, Bristol, Bournemouth and Brighton.

Steve recently spoke to top online guitar magazine iGuitar and explained 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 installment 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.
