For Steve's US fans, this is a big deal. He's been doing symphony and orchestra shows in Europe and Japan, but to my knowledge, this will be the first time he's done it in the States.

I've already got my tickets.

Very cool. I wonder if that's a one- off thing or if he'll be bringing the program to some other symphonies across the country. So far that's the only one listed on his site.

Seen SV a couple of times, the G3 tour alongside Joe Satriani and Steve Lukather, March 2012, and again on his own tour July last year.

Both shows were mind bendingly good.

Steve Vai Orchestral....If he was paying attention during his tenure with FZ, it should be good.....

Hey Trendy, do you think the band will be doing more :?: :arrow: :wink:

Guilty :)
Was lucky enough to meet him last year in Glasgow (the lady on the merch table must have taken a liking to me and my friend as she sent us over to meet him, I must have stuck out a mile with bright red hair. He read the music on my friends tshirt and pointed out that it had the black page on it. I even managed to get a couple of photos with him, Best concert ive ever been to. can't see me being so lucky again.

That's awesome, Dave. I can see why you didn't want to pass this show up.

I did not go. I have no funds for concerts right now. I just thought it would be cool to share this because I'd heard about SV sitting in while you guys were in Vegas. I was considering the AD Coach House(Apr.25th) show, though.

I always see him when he comes to Denmark. It is always great shows, and he always mentions that Denmark was the first place where he played outside the states (in Aarhus kicking off the 1982 tour with Treacherous Cretins on the Coral Sitar).

That was fucking awesome!

There's another clip in the sidebar of them playing a reprise of Flight Over Rio too!

Thanks for posting! 8)

Anybody else been listening to the above new-ish live album? I've had it a month or so and it is not getting any better. Of course, Vai is a technical master on guitar, but the album, the other performers, the MIX, the individual tones, the vocals, the banter... bleah. I'm trying to hold out some optimism here in that sometimes albums can take some time to get used to, but I was expecting to like this right away.

IMO, I don't know what he can do to top Sound Theories and Where the Wild Things Are.

I hope Steve will visit Dweezil at one of the Los Angeles area ZPZ shows this winter.

I saw the trailer on YouTube, and wasn't impressed or disappointed either way. It's Vai. I admire the mechanical dexterity that it takes to play that stuff, but I mostly prefer a guitar used in a more compositional way these days.

But I did find a lesson on the cool picking technique that he uses in Crossroads.
