With his first live appearances in North America in more than a decade, former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman recently mesmerized fans across the continent in support of his Billboard-charting, critically acclaimed 2014 solo album “Inferno”. Now, Friedman is excited to announce that he’ll return Stateside once again in early 2016. Following a solo guitar clinic in Mexico City, the second American leg of the “Inferno” world tour will kick off in Phoenix on February 8, with support on most dates provided by HOLY GRAIL.

Tickets will go on sale on this Friday, November 6 at 10 a.m. local time. VIP packages, which include the opportunity for fans to watch Friedman perform during soundcheck before getting a special one-on-one meet-and-greet and photo opportunity, are on-sale now in limited quantities at! (Please note: concert admission is not included with VIP packages and must be purchased separately.)

Immediately following the tour, Friedman will appear on the inaugural 2016 Axes & Anchors cruise, where he will perform two sets and host a guitar clinic. Reservations can be made now at
