What about an "Alive in an Ultra World" Anniversary Tour

In a few years, it will be the 20th anniversary of one of the most profound albums and experiments Mr. Vai has ever accomplished: Alive in an Ultra World. I often revisit this album and have yet to see Mr. Vai play any of these songs at a concert (other than "Whispering a Prayer," of course). About ...

Re: North American P&W 25th Anniv. Tour: Backstage Passes?

I thought so. Thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to do it the old fashioned way and wait with everyone else for Steve to exit the building and maybe chat with him then, lol.

North American P&W 25th Anniv. Tour: Backstage Passes?

Back in the day, Steve used to have backstage pass giveaways here on his forum. I won once. Does anyone know if Mr. Vai is going to give away any backstage passes for this latest tour for the 25th Anniversary of Passion & Warfare? Or if he's been doing backstage pass giveaways since starting his EVO...

Hooray! :D Mr. Vai has listened as is coming to not one but two shows in Tennessee! Just bought tickets to the one in Nashville on Nov. 19th! You're the best, Steve! :headbang

Re: North American Passion and Warfare Tour Dates?

Why, why, why don't I see a Tennessee tour date in this latest North American tour? :? Steve, please come back to TN with this monumental event! Or at least record the shows and make a stellar DVD out of it!

On Getting Things Done

I recently decided to catch up with what Steve's been up to and found a great post in the "News" section of the website that was related to Steve's newest composition "Still Small Voice" from his "The Middle of Everywhere" orchestration project. I noticed toward the end of the post Steve talked abo...

Re: 21 August 2012 Fall Tour -Marathon Musicworks -Nashville

Can't believe no one else has posted on the Nashville show. I've been to see Steve three times with my brother; it's become a tradition with us when Steve's in town: Once at the 2003 G3 tour in Nashville at the Ryman with Yngwie & Satch, once at the Cannery for the 2005 Real Illusions Tour, and onc...

Re: Steve's new album "The Story of Light" is being rel

Got my copy last week (the advantage of pre-ordering, lol!) and I've got to say this is some of the best stuff Vai has released. I'm still not sure if it's as good as Real Illusions: Reflections , but that's simply because there's more of a melodic structure to the first album. The Story of Light h...

Sometimes less is more, but then I suppose I'm not the hardcore Vai fan I once was.
Just give it a few more listens. Sometimes Vai's music needs time to grow on you :)

Re: Backstage Passes Giveaway for 2012 tour?

My brother and I entered on Joe Satriani's site for the G3 2003 with Yngwie and won. Then, when Steve came to Nashville again in 2005 for the Real Illussions: Reflections tour, we signed up here on vai.com and won. So I was just wondering if we could do it again but it's probably too late now. Hope...

Backstage Passes Giveaway for 2012 tour?

Just bought tickets a few weeks ago to the Nashville show and was wondering if there's any chance of signing up for free backstage passes. We won last year when the EVO experience was going on so unless it's just going to be too much of a hassle for Steve I don't see why there shouldn't be backstag...

10th Anniversary of two phenomenal double live albums!

Just wanted to congratulate Steve & Joe Satriani for bringing us the magic of two phenomenal live albums: Steve's "Alive in an Ultra World" and Satch's "Live in San Francisco". I still listen to these albums regularly and am blown away by the inspiration I get when I hear them. Here's a cool video o...

Re: STEVE TURNS 50! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEVE! Hope you have the best birthday ever! You're a guitar machine! Can't believe you have all the time to release Vai-Tunes, re-record archive tracks (Speed - Which I can't wait to hear!), work on a new record, and do workshops and other creative things! Keep 'em coming! By the w...

Re: [Blog Posting]Recording DVD Commentary

So, can we hope for some teaser vids/pics? How come no one took a pic of the screen as Vai, Jeremy, Anne Marie, & Mikey were recording commentary? Throw us a bone, for goodness' sake!
