2018 will see Phil Collen making his debut as a G3er. The venerable guitarist joined Def Leppard in 1982 and has been a key part of their worldwide multi-platinum success story, but he’s rarely stepped out as a solo axeman in his own right. “That’s what’s going to be so interesting and cool,” Satriani notes. “We think of Phil as being this integrated part of Def Leppard, but I recently got a chance to play with him at my latest G4 Experience in California, and I thought he was extraordinary. In my opinion, he’s probably underrated, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in his full set on the next G3.”

Says Collen, “Being asked to take part in the G3 tour is a real honor. I’ve been fortunate to have played guitar all over the world for many years, but I’ve never been able to stretch out as a player in the way that this tour will allow me to. And I’m thrilled beyond words to be on a bill with Joe Satriani and John Petrucci. They’re two of the greatest guitarists we have. I’m really looking forward to sharing a stage with them.”
