Each episode of Bus Invaders takes you inside the touring vehicle of one of today’s top touring acts. In this episode, the heavy metal guitarist, Marty Friedman, shows you around his tour bus, while on his Inferno North American Tour with Exmortus.
Marty Friedman takes to the EMGtv stage for the first time with this performance of “Amagi Goe”. Known for his solo work, years in Megadeth, and beside fellow guitar virtuoso, Jason Becker in Cacophony, Marty brings dynamics and soul like no other in his genre. With the EMG 81X and EMG 60X humbuckers you can hear all of the nuance and style in Marty’s guitar playing. These pickups truly highlight the subtlety in his sustain and the ferocity in his picking.
With his first live appearances in North America in more than a decade, Friedman recently mesmerized fans across the continent in support of his Billboard-charting 2014 solo album Inferno. Friedman has announced 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 8th, with support on most dates provided by Holy Grail.
Tickets are on sale now. 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 Prosthetic Records. (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 (Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker), where he will perform two sets and host a guitar clinic. Reservations can be made now at Axes & Anchors.
