On Monday July 31, The Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes Greg Howe to the WOW Hall.

Legendary guitarist, Greg Howe, will kick off his North American tour ‘Lost and Found” this July 2023, which will feature tracks from a new upcoming studio album, in addition to many of his classic fan-favorites.

The 2023 touring band features renowned bassist Stu Hamm (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani) and drummer Joel Taylor (Al DiMeola, Allan Holdsworth) joining Greg Howe on guitar.

Lost and Found marks Howe’s eleventh solo album and follows his 2017 Wheelhouse release, which was voted #6 of the top 20 best guitar albums of the decade by Guitar World Magazine.

Throughout Howe’s long career, he has developed a solid reputation as a technical innovator, particularly for his "hammer-on from nowhere" technique, legato runs, unusual time signatures, and linear tapping approach. His self-titled debut album Greg Howe is ranked as one of the top 10 best shred albums of all time by Guitar World Magazine.

Greg has also played key roles in numerous collaborative recording and touring projects along the way, partnering with the likes of world renowned musicians such as Dennis Chambers, Victor Wooten, Billy Sheehan, Jordan Rudess, Eddie Jobson, Tony Levin, Marco Minnemann, Richie Kotzen, Dave Weckl, and Tetsuo Sakurai, to name a few.  In 2018, Howe recorded all the guitar work for the GRAMMY® nominated album Protocol IV by legendary drummer Simon Phillips, which also featured Ernest Tibbs (bass), and Dennis Hamm (keyboards). 

In addition to his personal recording career as an artist, Greg also made a name for himself as a stellar sideman and touring session musician with some of the biggest pop artists of all time such as Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Nsync, Enrique Iglesias, Christina Aguilera, and others.

Musical trends may come and go, but you always know what to expect with a new Greg Howe album and tour - and this veteran guitarist certainly won't disappoint with what will undoubtedly be a breathtaking showcase featuring one of the best Rock/Fusion players in the world.

Audiences will experience Greg Howe doing Greg Howe like no other.  The show will include material from the new album, as well as, his most popular tracks such as "Jump Start", "Kick it all over", "Sunny", and many more.

The W.O.W. Hall will comply with all COVID-19 Guidelines issued by the State of Oregon and the CDC at the time of the event. This may entail limitations on capacity that might be lower than the number of tickets sold and/or event cancellation.
