Has anyone any idea if Vai, Satchi, or anyone in this genre, will be visiting the UK this year to gig? We get awful lonely on this little island of ours!

Nothing would make me happier than if they released the Japan footage with Petrucci. I mean Yngwie is greased lightning and he put on a pretty good show on the last G3 DVD release, but to me his playing is bland. It is all about ripping up and down scales and doing blistering arpeggios... the man is afraid to slow down and make something that sings. Now, John on the other hand is supersonic and melodic. You ask me who the top three guitarist are and my response would look exactly like what is going to happen in Japan... John, Satch, and Vai. I would easily pay five times more money for that DVD than the 2003 DVD.

It's my Birthday in September (the 28th) so if a Vai concert happened in September that would just be the best birthday present in the universe 8)

I'd be interested to know how the aftershows work...would the guys have interpreters? I'm assuming that all G3 fans won't be able to speak English and I wouldn't have thought Steve, Joe or John could speak Japanease lol...

I'm curious as to why there should be special rules for Japan? I suspect they will speak english.

I think the organizer prepares a interpreter.
As far as I know, the interpreter worked when Vai made a long and
complicated "joke" at the shows for the Ultra Zone Japan tour... :mrgreen:
Vai, Satch and Petrucci are used to touring Japan. :wink:

Hey!
One show is added in May 5...!!! :shock:
The venue is Zepp Tokyo.
...Will Evo Premium Experience for this show be held ?? :roll:


BTW, a Japanese guitarist is the guest player for this show, his name is DAITA, ex.SIAM SHADE(one of the Japanese hard rock band but broke up about 3 years ago). I was a fan of the band and often went their shows. DAITA is a good guitarist, I think his technique is better than HOTEI, but I'm not a fan of him... :lol: I can't be moved with his sounds... :roll:

How wonderful this morning is! :D :o
(Now's morning in Japan.)
I got my EVO ticket of the show for Zepp Tokyo!

I couldn't win my presale ticket(seated) at the ticket office in Japan yesterday,
so I unwillingly reserved a ticket for standing.
BUT...!
VAI.com doesn't disappoint me! :D
THANKS A LOT! :D
