Steve Vai Etc. 2nd ‘Generation Axe Tour’ Announced

Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society) Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme,) and Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders) team up for a second run of their ‘Generation Axe Tour‘. Bassist Pete Griffin (Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, Dweezil Zappa, etc.), keyboardist Nick Marionovich (Yngwie Malmsteen) and drummer JP Bouvet will join them on the tour as the backing band.

Comments Steve Vai:

“‘The Generation Axe‘ experience goes way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. The idea was to create a seamless show with one backing band and 5 completely accomplished and astonishing guitarists that take to the stage in various configurations, performing some of their solo music and merging together as cohesive co-creators of lushly orchestrated guitar extravaganzas. Guitar Jams like this can get really messy when there is no organization and my idea was to create parts for everybody to play in harmony and off each other so it’s not a mess of noise. This worked out remarkably well. There are places where everyone is playing together in wild harmony.”

Below's where that trek will stop: More...
