My friend and I drove down from Seattle area to attend this show as he is a new fan who is a converted country music fan who was hooked on Steve's showmanship from the beginning, than later became a big fan of the music. This was by far the best Vai show I have seen as well as being the best live guitar I have witnessed, and I have seen them all (i.e. Satriani, Yngwie, Friedman, Becker, EVH, etc.) We sat in the lower pit, where they serve dinner, so view and sound were as good as it could ever be. I even got a pick! One of the aspects that I really enjoyed was that it was just Steve and the main core group, just guitar, drums, bass, and limited keyboards played by Dave W. no frills , just meaty, perfectly executed instrumental virtuosity. Great setlist that hit all the staples, (though I miss attitude song and blue powder). I was also blessed to meet Steve and the band after the show and get a picture with him. So, to sum it up, it was actually the best concert experience of my life. Thank you Steve, Dave, Jeremy, and Philip for a very special night I will never forget.

Sincerely,

John Donaldson
