Both Vai performances are being filmed for a future episode of the critically acclaimed public television concert series “Front and Center,” scheduled to air in early 2017 during the seventh season of the show. This show also kicks off The Iridium’s annual celebration of its legacy as “The Home of Les Paul.” With more events featuring iconic performers to be announced, The Iridium will be honoring its most famous resident guitarist with special performances leading up to what would have been Les Paul’s 101st birthday on June 9th.

Over the past several years, “Front and Center” has presented a mix of Grammy, Country Music Association, and American Music Award winners, rock icons, and multi-Platinum artists including Santana, Paul Rodgers, Cheap Trick, Steven Tyler, Keith Urban, Jack Johnson, Joe Jackson, John Hiatt, Lady Antebellum, Buddy Guy, Little Big Town, Cyndi Lauper, The Fray, for King & Country, Train, Trey Anastasio, and more.

Vai will be launching his Passion and Warfare 25th Anniversary World Tour beginning at the World Guitar Festival in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, on May 28, 2016. Following that festival play and an extensive run in Europe that will include stops in Scotland, England, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Poland, France, Switzerland and many other countries, the tour will arrive in the United States in October. Additional concerts in America and abroad will be announced at a later date.
