This was the first time I ever saw Joe live. I fell in love with his music after bing turned on to Surfing With the Alien by my bass teacher. I was absolutely stunned. I've seen some great shows, among them Pearl Jam, The Allman Brothers Band, and Blues Traveler. But nothing came close! The playing was absolutely amazing. And the light show absolutely blew my mind and made the show 2 to 3 times as good as it would have been without lights (and that's still pretty damn good). I've never seen a more visually stunning or heard a more acoustically incredibly show than that night at the hammerstein ballroom. All I can say is, "when are you coming back, Joe?" Oh, and, "don't forget to bring Stu along with you."

First off I have to say that I went to both the Boston and NYC shows. The Boston show was awesome but I think the venue was too small for Joe. That night I give the show a 9. The venue is the only bad thing about the show I thought. Its curfew prevented Joe's second encore for one, the security personnel were rude and looking for trouble, and the acoustics could not do Joe justice. I enjoyed the show because I went to see Joe and thats that. The NYC show should have been captured on film! Last night was only my seventh time seeing Joe and let me tell you the whole band was on! The set was bigger and the sound at the Hammerstien Ballroom rocked! You could tell Joe was back in his home town and enjoying every minute of it. Rassberry Delta Jam V was flawless! Great work Joe! The intensity from the band was only doubled by the crowds. The whole audience was left once again in amazement. I was fortunate enough to been able to be on the guest list both nights and got to meet Joe again. If you have never met him before, all I can say is that I have never met a musician so humble, polite, and down to earth. If he could I know he would thank every single fan for all their support throughout his career. Eric, Jeff and Stu were just the same. A special thank you to Gaelon for his generosity on both nights and not forgetting about me (enjoy the Crown Royal). Bottom line is if your a Satriani fan - you have to catch this tour! You will regret it if you don't. Thanks for reading and take care. Peace, Ronnie

All I have to say is awesome! That show kicked major ass! Joe is just amazing!Anyway, sometime in the future on a G3 tour, i would love to see Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Greg Howe. I feel that Greg Howe more than deserves a chance. That would be the best show ever. My three favorite guitarists on stage at one time. So Joe, if u read this, please consider him for a possible future G3 tour. Thank you.

First time I've ever seen Joe live, and it tore me to pieces. My buddy and I took the 8+ hour bus trip from Montreal down to New York City, hung out during the day, checked out the show, and left back for the homeland a half hour later! The show was incredible, we got to stand 2nd row center!! The sound was booming without doing any permanent damage, and the boys were blasting!!! My jaw was on the floor each time Joe took a solo, and watching Stu's solo, and seeing him play Always with me, Always with you was absolutely incredible. I'd have to admit, making Joe smile was the ultimate, but going back home with a Satch pick was the icing on the cake. Definately one of te best nights of my life, getting to see Joe on stage with his seemless playing. Such a cool guy too. Take it easy Joe and I'll be out there next tour, even if I have to take another road trip!!! Eric Rondeau

First time seeing Joe after dreaming about it for umpteen years...one word describes the show..awesome! Joe is a master guitarist extraordinare. Absolutely unbelievable, and his accuracy with such complex music is just unbelievable. He is the Beethoven and Mozart, etc. of modern times, only he doesn't need to read sheet music to do it. My darling lifetime partner came with me to the concert, the good soul she is, after hearing my unsuccessful attempts to play guitar along with Joe's recordings the past few years, and telling her how I someday might actually be able to play like him (a guy can dream, can't he?). She was absolutely amazed once Joe started playing, and was mesmerized by the diversity and beauty his music makes you feel. You are transcended to different dimensions in each song, only to be masterfully brought back to the original starting place in a way only Joe knows how to make happen. She also said the music reminded her at any given time of bits of so many other rock greats, and uniquely blending all of it together, as well as sometimes going far off the expected road, but then realizing you never left, you were only shown another facet of music and feeling you were never aware of before. She additionally said that Joe's guitar seemed to be a natural part of him, and that he is so totally into what he does, and the recordings do not give him justice for his many talents. I totally agree. The rest of the band was absolutely superb, every one of them. A magnificent display of talent...just the perfect example for today's young kids. Our hats are off to all of you. One thing, which amazed me, but really didn't surprise me, was the diversity of the people who attended, all of them getting into the music. Every earthly human was represented, as was every age and every walk of life. Father/son pairs were many, as were families. It was a wonderful experience of people coming together, as the world should, all thanks to Joe's wonderful creations and the feelings he expresses in his music, which touches everyone in a unique and positive way. Joe, I want to thank you for the many years I've been listening to your music. You are a master, and I would one day like for myself and my family to meet you and your fellow musicians. Thanks for the many years of your truly awesome inspirations.....!

The guitar virtuosity of Joe is nothing short of awe inspiring. The band opened with Devil's Slide. They played songs fron Surfing with the Alien, The Extremist, Engines of Creation, Crystal Planet and others which I was not familiar with. The one thing that impressed me about these super talented musicians, was that they genuinely enjoy playing their music. Joe plays with intensity and finesse. He is a technition and so much more than that; he is one of this generation's enlightened musicians. If you are going to one his shows, you will not be disapointed.

Awesome show. The older songs sounded fresh and the new ones really rocked a lot more than the CD allows them to. Stu did a great solo of some Beatle songs and Jeff was great on drums. Only thing i would have liked was to have Eric's volume up a bit. You couldn't hear what he was playing too well.

Stu is a great bassist,really dug that solo.Eric I thought, was a good addition for the keys aspect but on guitar,basically only really heard him on 2 songs{time,borg sex}and Jeff in the first set was just a little less than perfect but came out to shine brightly in the second set.Highlight-Being there!

One of my favorite concerts ever. I've seen alot. The sound was great. Joe's playing was flawless and I like the added rhythm guitar. Alot of positive energy through out the whole performance. All this and a good song selection makes for a great show.

P.S. I sat up top and I'm sure that I saw somebody recording the show with a camcorder down below. If anyone knows anything about a tape please share info on how to get a copy.

The music speaks for itself. although, 1 gripe I have is with the start time. Any concert I have been to in my 32 years, including the 3 satriani shows. I have never seen a headliner or single main act start ten minutes into the "said Start time" I had the misfortune of eating dinner at a diner 1 block west of hammerstein with my 2 good friends, thinking, "well, gee, he never comes on for atleast an hour after the gates open. Well, to my amazement, our 1 friend who came down solo, cell phoned us from the mezzanine, yelling "where the @%*! are you guys ?? 08:39 pm He has been playing for 20 minutes. Well, you have never seen 2 ginnies and yugoslav (chick, I might add) wolf down chicken souvlakis in 90 seconds flat. Other than that, my praises to satch and crew. Always memorable.

I have had the pleasure to see and hear Joe play 17 times over the last 10+ years. But certainly the 18th time in NYC was the best for a number of reasons. First of all, I finally decided to take the plunge and get to a show super early so I ended up being closer to the stage than ever before: 2 row (actually, probably more like 1 1/2 since we were kinda pushed up pretty close). What can I say that hasn't already been said? Joe is simply brilliant. He is a terrific showman, a brilliant musician and by all accounts an incredibly nice guy. How lucky we all are to be able to watch and listen to someone who is such a master in his chosen field, a field he clearly loves.

Acoustically Hammerstein was terrific, although being so close to the front didn't help me to experience Joe at the optimum sonic distance. Joe and company did sound awesome. I felt the balance was just right; the Stu and Jeff's bass weren't overpowering, Eric's keys and guitar#2 filled the spaces nicely and of course, Joe's sound up front, perfectly balanced, with just the right combination of bass growl, midrange howl and controlled highs. Kudos to Joe and the sound people!

I thought I picked out Rubina and some other members of Joe's family/friends. They were in the lower balcony on stage left; I noticed Joe looking up there a few times and caught them all smiling with pride and joy. It felt like a strangely intimate moment amidst 3000 Satch fans.

The set list was killer although I would have gladly listened to Joe play nothing but "Mary Had a Little Lamb" a thousand times over.

All in all, one of the most memorable Satch shows ever!

HEY RON33! I waited outside at the stage entrance like you said! Actually hung out until 1am. Was disappointed to not get backstage and finally meet Joe and the gang, but it was nice to meet you anyway...Thanks for trying!

TO JR: I am sorry we didn't get to chat more before the show. I would have loved to chat with you a bit and the rest of the un-listers...(Hint: I am the Asian guy who approached your group right before we went inside. I asked you "Is that THE SHIRT?" and you responded with "You know of THE SHIRT?")

Let's all hope that Joe's inspiration and desire never fades away (and that the record labels continue to have the good sense to allow Joe the freedom to do what he does so very well)...

PEACE! mariusar

Unbelievable!!!! Every time I see Joe and company, I cannot possibly imagine how a show could be better, but the next time I see him, I am proven wrong by being blown away even more than the last time. This was no exception, as Joe, Stu, Jeff, & Eric took me away to that place I can only reach when the tour touches my corner of the universe. In addition to the incredible music, I had the opportunity to meet some great people and make some new friends. The aftershow proved once again that Joe is a true gentleman, as he made the rounds and touched base with absolutely every person who came to see him. A true class act! If you have the opportunity to catch one of the dates on this tour, DO NOT MISS IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!! Joe, if you're listening, thanks as always for all the great music. Ever since the release of "Surfing", your music has been the soundtrack to my life.

Hi all you Satch fans. I was at the Hammerstien on April 28, and i saw quite a show. Joe didn't miss a beat. As always his skills floored me. The concert couldn't have been better. he played all the great stuff. Down, Stach Boogie, Cool #9, Crystal Planet, Borg Sex, Time, Friends, Surfin' With the Alien. Some said the show was too loud, but I call it the acceptable level for rock music. Definately check out a show if possible! -Jesse

Funny Story;

Once the second set was about to begin, two guys crash thier way in front of a middle-aged woman standing to my left. She was there accompanying her son and husband (that's what it looked like at least). Anyway, she was kinda short so the guys with big beer bellies block her view of the stage.

Needless to say, she was pissed.

So 3 songs later, when she had just about enough of it, she pushes her way in front of the two guys, and yells back "F@#$ You, I can do it to you too!!". What were they gonna do, hit/push a woman at a concert?? They just stood there and took it for the rest of the show, fumming at the woman in front of them who was now partially blocking thier view.

Well, at least I thought it was funny. Serves'em right for being inconsiderate jerks.

Oh, P.S. - An amazing performance by Joe & Co. I hope someone recorded Stew's bass solo, because it had to be the best bass solo ever perfomed . Joe shined. He was obviously happy to perform in front of the home crowd (his old home anyway). And we were even happier to see him.

What a rythem section. Jeff's DW kit is so great these days. It made the music so much fuller. I guess you have to have great bass and drums to keep up with Joe. He is unreal, the best. I wish he was playing another show in my area, I would not even think twice about going again. Joe is so good it's almost not human. The Hammerstein show was one of the best Joey Boy shows I ever seen him do. Joe sets the standard for all the rest.

One of the best shows I've ever been to! The set list was great although he could have played more than 4 songs from the new album being that it is the EOC tour. Everything from Satch's tone to chops and feel make me want to play my guitar even more. Down Down Down was great. I could have killed the sound man because the kick drum was too loud. So loud the I couldn't hear Satch a few times. Otherwise the playing was right on and if ever there was a show to be video taped, this was it. Stu & Jeff were great. Eric was a little layed back but the man has talent. Until we meet again (I hope its soon!)have a great tour and rock on!

I have to rank this "best" because it was my first Satch concert! The Hammerstein ballroom allows a very intimate concert with Joe - and it was simply fantastic. He came on about 10 minutes after 8PM, and played until almost 11 PM, with a short break in between. The crowd was full of enthusiasts, even if not fully packed way up in the 2nd and third level, and Joe just kicked butt completely. The sound was much better than any concert I've ever been too (had to be - the purpose is to hear that excellent Joe guitar!). Stu's bass solo was a very nice surprise in the 2nd set, and I know some folks didn't like it but it was quite creative, which, after all, is what Joe S. seems to be leading the way on with his musical track record. All my old favorites and some stuff on the new album were all played - excellent! Going to the next Satch concert is now on my "gotta go list". The thing that impressed the most was how much Joe seemed to LOVE TO PLAY and it was if sharing his fantastic "voice through the guitar" was what mattered most to him that night. Incredible. THANKS JOE (and to Eric, Stu & Jeff, because you add fullness and depth to the sound that is absolutely necessary to make this a complete experience).

I've only seen Satch twice live. Last time was at the PNC Bank/Garden State Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. I was blown away by him then. Last night I was in awe. Three hours of bliss. I still don't know what hit me. That's all I can say really. Even though I have every one of his CD's and I listen to him quite a bit, to actually see him live is one of the best experiences anyone will ever have in my opinion. Hats off to the rest of the band. His ensemble includes the best musicians always. I've seen hundreds of shows in my life but very few can match up to a Satch concert. I have seen and listened to many so called guitar wizards but when Joe hits the stage you know who's BOSS. He is a cut above the rest. I can't believe if someone out there says the show was less than a 10. These guys kicked some major ass last night. To Joe and the rest of the band, good luck on the remainder of your tour-you guys rule! When you look up guitarist in the dictionary there are no printed words next to it-just a picture of Joe.

Last night the Hammerstein BR was a little piece of heaven,..Delivered by a Train of Angels. Joe, Eric, Jeff and Stu Hamm were way over the 100% mark and the crowd knew it..A very long show, (2.5 hours), amazing or awesome just doesn't cut it here, I've seen countless Joe Satriani shows in many years, but this was off the scale,..Classic favorites of course, but the EOC pieces were outstanding for a live show; Borg, CRATS, UWSGoodbye, DSlide..unreel in live setting. The set list was almost custom to the fans ear; Joe was on top form and never cut back, 2 encores. Eric adds so much to this 'creation' on both R.guitar and keys, Stu Hamm was Stuuuuuu! and the bass mix and solos were right there, there are some great great rock drummers and on that list is Jeff in my mynd(thx!), his kit looked bigger and he was flyin last night. The house was screaming in NYC, and a nod the Hammerstein BR, great acoustics only confirmed what I already knew; This is a 200% rock&roll road show, if your going to this run, you will be taken away; Satriani and crew are a class-act some in this business can only aspire to. Another nod to the great "Friends" that just made a great night another piece of heaven..Satch Boogies!

With my back against the "cage" surrounding the Soundboard and slightly to the left of centerstage that's if you're looking at the audience from the stage. That's where I stood, I didn't have anyone around me "tripping on acid" nobody jumping around with their shirts off. The hundreds or so people around me were, drinking, smoking cigarettes (all kinds) and having a great time.

From the moment Joe and the guys took the stage to the final "curtain call" the show was AWESOME..... all I can say is, JOE, THANKS FOR A GREAT SHOW!!!!!!

Of course I could review the entire show song by song like everyone else in the world would do but I'm not gonna do that. Cause it would BE A WASTE OF TIME and IT'S ALREADY BEEN DONE.

Excellent show, the same set list as was posted from one of the Chicago shows. The new songs Devil's Slide & Borg Sex sound really "live" and different compared to the studio cuts. If you can imagine, almost like hearing a cover band doing the songs (I mean that in a good way). Clouds Race Across the Sky was really opened up as far as the soloing and overall was much "heavier" in the middle section. Also had a chance to say hi to Jeff Campitelli before the show. Jeff was great on the drums tonight. He really is a fantastic drummer. By the way, Eric's stage presence is very reserved. Down, Down, Down from Satriani 95 album was probably the oddball unexpected tune in the setlist and was played very very close to the studio cut and sounded great.

Mr. Satriani's playing can make any shredder humble.A couple of vocals would have been nice though.Maybe Joe had too much milk to drink with his chocolate Easter bunny before the show.Good luck to all.
