Guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani will celebrate the 20th anniversary of his album “Surfing With the Alien” by performing a handful of club and theater dates in August. The concerts will coincide with an expanded reissue of the album, due Aug. 7 via Legacy Recordings/Epic.

Satriani will play four shows, starting Aug. 15 at the Blender Theatre at Gramercy in New York. From there, he will head to Chicago for a performance at the House of Blues (Aug. 16), before a gig at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles (Aug. 17). The stint will conclude the following day with an intimate concert at Hyde Street Studio in San Francisco, where “Surfing With the Alien” was recorded in 1987.

Tickets for the concerts will go on sale July 15, exclusively through Satriani’s Web site.

The two-disc reissue of "Surfing With the Alien" will feature remastered songs, along with never-before-seen footage of Satriani performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1988.

Satriani is booked by Wayne Forte with New York-based Entourage Talent Associates.
