Joe Satriani, Steve Morse share evening of electric, eclectic virtuosity at UB’s Center for the Arts on Tuesday

Touring in support of the late spring release of his 14th studio album, “Unstoppable Momentum,” Joe Satriani swings by the University at Buffalo’s Center for the Arts in Amherst at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. For this tour, Satriani – a storied virtuoso and always a vibrant performer – has assembled an all-star ensemble comprising former Frank Zappa band member and storied multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Mike Kenneally, bassist Bryan Beller and iconic drummer Marco Minnemann, who was last in the area as a member of Steven Wilson’s band. As if this lineup wasn’t enough to satisfy the desires of fans of serious instrumental music, support for Satriani will be provided by another six-string legend, Deep Purple/Dixie Dregs picker Steve Morse and his band.

Tickets are $31-$64 (box office,
