Steve Vai has planned a tour of Europe this summer in June and July, and will be touring the United States in September and October. In anticipation of this tour, Vai is holding open auditions on May 2nd and 3rd in Los Angeles. According to his website, he is looking for a bass player and a violin player that can also play keyboards, guitar or horns. The open auditions will be in addition to other, invite-only private auditions that Vai is holding.

The open auditions page lists two songs that will be audition pieces: “The Crying Machine” and “Freak Show.”
