American Youth Symphony performance at Disney Hall LA.

Hey folks, Steve here.

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be performing at Disney Hall in Los Angeles with “American Youth Symphony” on March 11, 2017. I’ve been going to concerts at Disney Hall since it was constructed and feel tremendous appreciation to have been invited to perform my music there. The pieces that will be performed are…

1. There’s Still Something Dead In Here (without Steve)
2. Kill the Guy with the Ball (with Steve)
3. The Murder (with Steve)
4. Call it Sleep (with Steve)

These pieces were chosen by Carlos Izcaray who is the exceptional conductor of this event. It’s interesting to note that the first 3 pieces are perhaps some of my darkest and most brooding music.

“There’s Still Something Dead in Here” is a complex, dense and very atonal piece of contemporary music.
“Kill the Guy with the Ball” is violently fast and furious and the Orchestra version is just ripping.
“The Murder” is macabre and harmonically heavy.
“Call It Sleep” is from Flex-Able with an updated symphonic orchestration and will be a blessed relief after the first pieces.

Interesting that all the titles of these pieces could lead one to believe I have a preoccupation with Death! Truth is, I’m way too alive for that. Hope to see you at the show.

Should be a fun gig! Passian and Warfare...What a brilliant album. Wish Joe Satriani was available to do it.

went to the san diego show at humphrey's by the bay for generation axe, and saw you twice on your passion and warfare tour! =D

Jack Thammarat should play instead of Malsteen. Nobody wants to hear those minor pentatonics over and over and over. He has NO FEEL ...you know its all about how much money they can make.. BullShit

Hi steve vai , could you play canon rock and record the video then send it to youtube .... sorry , I'm talking different topic.

Come with Generation Axe to Brazil too! It would be legendary!

Generation Axe was amazing! Really hoping for an album. :)

I saw both shows! Mind blowing is not a big enough expression!! Can't wait for more!!

Wow! Now that's a kick ass lineup....I wish you guys would tour Australia 👍

Saw both shows... Axe in Oakland, and P&W in Sac! Made my year! :D

Take Zakk and Tosin out of the equation and I will attend.

Any thoughts of coming back to Adelaide, Australia in the near future ?🎸

We're all very very upset when we saw the generation axe show in Hong Kong cancelled...

It will be great to have you playin' in Brazil Steve. We're waiting you here in Porto Alegre, tickets in the hand

I have just got accident at ski and broke my 12th back bone... So disappointed that I can not go to the great show....

If it was closer bunch of my friends would go we just went to see you in December it was killer please come thru okc again we drove 2 hrs to that show in Tulsa

i´m waiting for u, thanks mr.steve ... see u in Peru :´)

Gave Passion and warfare tickets to my guitarist grandson.....he loved it. Hoping Generation Axe comes this way.

Mr.steve vai..you are a best guitarist on the world for ever.

Australia? (Melbourne) I'm totally blown away with that line up!

I am very glad to be decided to undergo a re-visit to JAPAN ! I expect the bese show ?

Mandou bem com a orquestra de Floripa no Rock infelizmente rio vc é foda

It would be nice if it came to Detroit. Just sayin.

Yes.... I'd also like for Steve Vai to play canon rock version Steve Vai aragement solo with new techniques and upload to youtube.

Its wonderful tour..... Make sometimes concert in Timor Leste. Steve Vai.

A lot of countries received AXE GENERATION. Here in BRAZIL we will receive Steve Vai alone. Why don't you schedule an AXE GENERATION SOUTH AMERICA TOUR?
