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.

Love videos like this. It humanizes super heroes. I would drool over any guitar ad in any catalog as a kid too. I remember going to carvin on Pico in la, they've since moved in with the big boys in Hollywood. Financed huge bass gear that day, prices were and still are great for what you get

Hi Steve, I would love to buy this pedal but have just been told by Carvin, that they don't ship to or have any dealers in the UK! How can I get my hands on one if the manufacturer isn't bothered about the UK. I'm based in Glasgow, I saw and met you on your opening Passion and Warfare tour, it was a mind-blowing gig by the way!! And amazing to get a chance to meet you again. (Met you in Glasgow years ago on your Ultra Zone tour). Just thought you would like to know that Carvin are not bothering about the UK. Peace n Love, Robert

You don't know me. But I must say. Absolutely beautiful pedal and Pre-amp #SteveVai and #Carvinaudio If #SteveVai and #Carvin could like this and/or comment. I would be an extremely grateful fan. Coming from a major fan from England Peter Lincoln.

I can totally relate as I remember those cool Carvin catalogs. Aside from totally digging your playing Steve, I also like how you are down to earth and how you talk to your fans. You are very humble and that is really cool! VAI on!

I recently purchased the magazine Steve is talking about, and the "Blue Powder" demo is still included! Purchased mainly for the great interviews from some of these old GP magazines - a window into the fairly recent musical past <3

This new VLD1 pedal is truly intriguing. I am pretty sure that I will purchase one.

This is the best pedal I've ever owned and how fitting that it's my heroes' design! Thanks Steve for showing me the ropes to playing with my soul and now a voice that's fitting! Here's my Unboxing video... I was like a kid on Christmas for this and it turned out better than I could have imagined! I was able to dial in my own Texas style into the Steve Vai rig! Perfect! Thank you! youtu.be/M6VflkgGwPU

Ian Devlin I'm tagging myself to watch this when I eat my dinner in about 15 mins.

i still dont understand, is this just a drive or it like a legacy head in a smaller box?

Thank you Mr Vai and Carvin for solving a problem I didn't even know I had.

make up your mind steve ... you already had Gemini ... now this !?

Ufffdahhh!!!! youtu.be/5_UanTmMpOw

All we need now is a demo!

nice

Is Stevie Vai trying to be Dame Edna Everidge

500 dollarydoos??!

Steve Vai: We are coming from Norway to see the show at Disney Hall. We are looking with excitement to this. Kindly Erland one of the authors of the book Zappa i Norge.

Que grande Steve vai.. Es un lujo siempre saber que está atrapando al mundo con su música... Agradecido eternamente por su existir... X.M.C

Unlike bona massa tickets for 150, Steve stays casual

He also was to play in San Antonio, sold out gig, and he welched. Good luck.
