You can tell how much he appreciates his fans.

They've been friend since first playing on David Lee Roth's solo albums in the 1980's

He and his band played a great show..over 3 hours!

It was so great seeing him after being a fan of his for over twenty years!

Steve Vai's music is both enthralling and beautiful. He mostly plays instrumental guitar songs. He does sing on a few songs. He has a great backing band behind him with Tony McAlpine and David Weiner on guitar, his long-time friend Billy Sheehan on bass guitar. By the way, they played together with David Lee Roth on his first two solo albums, "Eat 'Em And Smile", and "Skyscraper". Check those out for some of Steve's great early work! Finally Steve has a "new kid" on drums. His name is Jeremy Colson. He turned 28 years-old on the day of our concert in New Orleans. This concert will be an experience I'll never forget. I hope to see Steve again someday in a better seat! It was hard to see sometimes from the balcony. But, it was still an awesome concert.

The souveniers I got at the concert.

It has his last name "Vai" along with his signature Ibanez "Jem" guitar.

"That little Stevie Vai. What a nice little boy!"
