Wow ... what a day!
When I woke up on Tuesday, I didn't even know if i was going to see Steve Vai. I bought the ticket to for the concert, ticket for the train and paid the hotel. But there were the trains... they started to strike the day before...
I was like: YAI!!! When I saw that all my trains were going to be on time!
So I arrived in time in Ulm and went to the "Ulmer Zelt" and could hear a part of the sound check from outside. Then we could enter the "Ulmer Zelt", a quite small "circus tent" for 1200 people. I had the great opportunity to stand in the 2nd row in front of the stage.
Zack's first action already made the whole audience laugh, it was so silly that it was funny again
(I don't want to tell more and spoil it for those who are still going to see the concert) But Zack played really very well and rocked the stage with his great haircut.
After Zack, it was time for The Master
Steve Vai entered the stage and did what he can best: Playing guitar and making everyone around him happy
I can't criticise any song, they were just so perfect!!! And the vaio.. violins fit perfectly together with the whole band! The sound was (sorry if i have to use the same word again and again) perfect, nothing too loud, nothing too high, just great! After Steve played a lot of songs including some of my favourites and had a lot of fun with the violins, Weiner and Jeremy, it was time for the encore. As you have already seen in the posts before, it was a special encore. Vai introduced Yasi and then [check out her video here]. As you can see, she did a great job and a dream came true for her. I don't think that there are a lot of other artists who let their fans perform on stage! Just another trait of Steve which shows how unique he is!
Wow... didn't want to write so much ^^ All in all, my first Vai concert was (yeah, my favourite word ) perfect!
Thanks a lot, Steve!
