Japan-based American guitarist Marty Friedman is back for a cross-country tour of the U.S. in February. Guitarist Naoki Morioka and others join Friedman for this historic tour. Starting on February 21 in Atlanta, the band joins John 5 for six shows on the WITH THE CREATURES IN 2024 tour, finishing up in Albuquerque.
Friedman is well-known to many music fans for his more than ten years with Megadeth. Yet, since the early 2000’s he has made Japan his home. While living over there, the prolific Friedman has been busy composing, performing, and teaching music. Moreover, he found time to show up regularly on Japanese TV and online music shows. To be sure, he’s now a respected J-Rock star as much as he is already an iconic heavy metal guitarist.
Here’s Marty with his band, on stage at Wacken Open Air 2023.
Notably, Friedman co-hosts Rock Fujiyama, a popular YouTube channel featuring top rock musicians from Japan and abroad. Follow the show for interviews, insights and Marty jamming with the likes of Midori and Miyako of LOVEBITES, TOMO-ZO of Gacharic Spin, SAKI and mayu of NEMOPHILA, Yuki of D_Drive, and many more.
