The “EVO Premium Experience” is an exclusive and very special opportunity we are offering to our loyal Vai.com visitors. The “EVO Premium Experience” was a huge success on all the previous tours and garnered countless rave reviews from fans. Now we are bringing EVO back for 2022! The package allows you the exciting opportunity to see Steve and the band prepare for a show; along with the ability to ask Steve questions in an intimate group discussion. Availability is VERY limited for each show – so be aware that they will sell quickly once we put them on sale.

Please note that pictures will take a few days before appearing on this site.
Q. When will I receive the merchandise in the package?
You will receive the merchandise in the package on the day of the show.
Q. Can I give Steve a copy of my demo CD?
No. While Steve is very supporting of upcoming artists, he cannot accept your demo CDs while he is on tour. It is too much for him to carry on the road, as by the end of most tours he ends up with hundreds of them. Keep them at home as they will only be lost or forgotten on the road.
Q. Can I give Steve a gift?
Many fans like to present Steve with gifts while he is on tour. While Steve is honored and flattered, carrying gifts on tour can become a major problem, and can lead to a lot of extra baggage by the time the tour is over. So that we don’t become overloaded on the road, we would prefer if you did not bring gifts.
