Former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman has announced a string of European tour dates with Yossi Sassi and Stephan Forte as support.
A message from Marty:
"Yossi and I became friends on my 2011 solo tour, we came up with the idea of putting together a concert tour with decidedly unique and exotic guitarists, each from a different part of the world with their own ethnic sound and approach to their music. I didn't know just how cool Middle Eastern flavors could mix with amazing rock guitar playing until I heard Yossi Sassi, I was quite impressed. Stephan Forte will give you an idea what an absolute guitar wizard from France sounds like. The tour will happen in October and everyone is in for a once in a lifetime collection of artists from separate corners of the world, and a truly inspiring treat."
The schedule is as follows:
As previously reported, three recent albums by Friedman - whose groundbreaking work with Megadeth and Cacophany continues to receive international acclaim to this day - will receive North American releases by Prosthetic Records on August 14th.
Two of the titles - 2010's 'Bad D.N.A.' and 2008's 'Future Addict' - have until this year only been available in Japan, where Friedman now lives, while 2006's acclaimed 'Loudspeaker', originally released Stateside by Shrapnel Records, will be made available domestically once again.
