  • Who here has seen Vai?

    I've never seen him but am thinking of going to the St. Louis show in Sept. I like him and my son has become a bit of a fan also. I think my son would really dig it.

    Is it worth it?

    I saw him almost 2 years ago as part of the Experience Hendrix tour. I would say he is worth seeing if you haven't seen him...:thu:

      I've seen him 3-4 times over the years. He puts on a good show, and his guitar playing is every bit as impressive live as it is on records. The guy can play. Expect him to have a smoking support band as well. Of course, the venue will be all guitar geeks, but most of them seem pretty friendly.

        Good to hear. My son will be excited when I tell him.

          Yes, very much worth it, it will be a great show. I've seen him several times over the years, he never disappoints.

            I've seen him 3 or 4 times with the G3 tours and if you like his music, he puts on a hell of a show.

                Saw him in 88 on the DLR Skyscraper tour. Was like watching a guitar magician.

                  I saw him with Satriani and Malmsteen on the one G3 tour they did together. Was a great show and fun night of stunt guitar from the 3 of them.

                    Seen him twice. On the very first G3 with Satch and EJ and in the very first US Zappa plays Zappa run...stellar both times...

                      Yeah, Vai is great live.

                      I did almost mistake him for a 60 year old Lesbian, but no mistaking his playing.

                            Saw him in St. Louis back when Billy Sheehan was in the band and he didn't have the violinists. It was fantastic. I would definitely be interested in seeing his new lineup.

                              Buying my tickets for Orlando the minute they go on sale this Friday. Never seen him live in concert per se, but I did attend his "Alien Guitar Secrets" class and it was awesome. He did a couple of tunes live to a backing track (Building the Church was one, can't remember the others), and jammed with a dozen or so people in the class at the end. One of my favorite players.
