let see if I can recall...

Once with Frank in 1981
One in-store solo show in Chicago when The Ultra Zone was released
Once on the Ultra Zone tour
Once on the G3 tour with Petrucci
Once on the next G3 tour with Malmsteen
Twice on the Real Illusions tour
three time with Zappa Plays Zappa

I think that's it, but I feel like I'm missing one or two. I'm getting old, the memory fades.....

If my count serves me correct, it would be 37 times. I have to look through my ticket stubs. I'll see him this weekend, in Dublin in July, and who knows how many times this fall when he hits the states.

Both concert where absolutely amazing, and an experience I'll never forget. How sad it is that Steve is'nt touring in Scandinavia this time.

Three time.

1997, Fire Garden tour, The Palace, Melbourne, Australia
2005, Just prior to RI:R release, The Palace, Melbourne, Aust.
2007, G3 with Joe and John P. The Forum, Melbourne Aust.

1997, front row, but it was way too loud and I had NO earplugs, wow, my balance was messed up for a day or so after that!
2005 was good, earplug leasson learnt, great show.
2007 the best show I've seen, sound was perfect, awesome.
