I saw him 4 times (in France and Luxemburg):

1993 - Sex & Religion tour
2000 - Ultra Zone tour*
2005 - Real Illusions: Reflections tour
2007 - Sound Theories tour

Each time it was better than before, and the first time was already an absolutely mind blowing show, so there you go.... :)

*the very show that saw the recording of "Being with you (in Paris)". I was at the soundcheck that day and it was amazing to witness the band working that one out, the rehearsals with the voice-over guy and all that....

Oh, and I also was at ZPZ in Brussels.

Steve toured here on his solo tours before I'd discovered him unfortunately, but i had the privelige of seeing him live as part of the 'G3 Down Under' tour last year with John Petrucci and Joe Satriani...

Amazing performance, a little short but the setlist was great for such a short performance, and the jam was brilliant! I also loved seeing Petrucci as I'm a massive Dream Theater fan...

I'd like to see him again when he comes in December for the 'Zappa plays Zappa' tour, but I don't think the bank balance will allow it unfortunately... :(
