My trip from Atlanta to Nashville, then Winston-Salem, then Atlanta(29th) G3 tour was one of the best ever! I drove over 1000 miles in 3 days to see my favorite musicians. I was amazed because I only saw 3 shows, 3 nights in a row, and they were on a non-stop 10 night tour. Night after night, these guys would give110%!! In Atlanta, the Tabernacle is always nice. great sound!! (although they need more fans to cool the crowd). Except at the Atlanta aftershow...Joe and Steve stayed seperate. It was hard to meet Joe at the aftershow. I was dead tired after 3 days. and it was WORTH every minute!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the great music Joe!

a dedicated fan! Todd

It was the most incredible dispaly of guitar playing I have ever seen in person ! It was my first of what I hope is many more opportunities to see Joe live. Not to mention Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen ,who were also terriffic in their own right. Each style is completely unique but equally awesome! Definitely worth the trip from Charlotte!

This is right up there with the Nine Inch Nails Fragility 2.0 Tour as THE BEST show I have ever seen. I have to say that Yngwie was....over the top...lol. Vai blew me away. Satch was amazing, but I have a strong feeling this was only half of what it usually sounds like. I was still extremely impressed by all 3 and will keep going back to G3 tours. Amazing Amazing Stuff!

A little to loud for the size of building. Could have left Yngwie Malmsteen at home. Joe and Steve were great.

Great show!!! Can't wait for the next lineup -

Anyone know the complete setlist for Steve and Joe? I know Yngwie's but was unfamiliar with some of Steve's new music, and missed a few that Joe played...

Thanks for any help!

When G3 were at the stage, Yngwe's guitar was imposible to listen and Satch's and Vai's were way to loud, and the return for Satch was nul, I noticed him picking up notes, but most of the crowd doesn't have this ear. Individualy the concerts were exceptional. At the end Yngwe ran to the bus (as usual, In Brasil he locked himself up at the dressing room), and we were really sorry that Satch left early. Really good concert and I would gladly pay to watch it again, but next time I want to hear New Blues :)

Once again Joe and friends have out done themselves on the G3 tour!!!! I stand in awe every single time I am at the concert. The age range that I saw was anywhere from it looked like 15 up to some people in there 60's or 70's. That is AWESOME!!!! Keep on jammin Joe!!!!

<It was awesome, enough said. I just have one question... whats the name of that song that vai played, i think it was the second one, the one he dedicated to someone-------

"Whispering a prayer"-the song has been stuck in my head since the show ended last night.

G3 pulls off another stellar show. In true concert fashion saving the best for last was the masterful guitarists blasting the crowd with a barrage of Jimi hendrix tunes. Opening the final set with "Voodoo Child" and Steve Vai leading in with "Little Wing" and finishing it off with Neal Young's "Rockin in the free world" there was ample riffs and power chords to to not only be heard, but to be felt in the souls of all who witnessed.

Although never have hearing a single note from Yngwie Malmsteen, I found it difficult to listen much further than the first 2 minutes of his "performance". Other than the ability to dissolve a caselot of guitar picks in 45 minutes I found nothing remarkable about tearing up a well tuned Vintage Stratocaster. You would think that a guitarist with the years of experience would inded have a little more respect for sharing the spotlight during the final set.

If I had to divide the show in 3rd's, my ranking is due to the lack of putting a better guitarist in the number 3 spot. Ok, Eric Johnson needs to work on stage presence, but at least he has a passion for music and not worried about how his overweight ass looks in a pair of out-of-date leather pants. As far as YJM is concerned it might as well be G2 next year....

I've seen reviews where there were knit-picky B.S. complaints about the sound or the set or repetative play, etc. - you people need to sit down and shut up! Pulling off a tour of this caliber with the set chages and different line-ups and everything that goes with it, is, in a word: miraculous! The sound was good with good production, the energy high, great individual performances, and a jam at the end that was so far beyond the common place that it boggles the mind. In this day and age we seem to be so spoiled we'd bitch and complain about anything. This show and I'm sure the entire tour was fabulous! Please don't let the nay-sayers keep you from attempting this again in the future, believe it... LOVED IT!!!!!!!!

Still reeling from the awesomeness of it all... Mike

JOE!! YOU WERE AMAZING!!! I SAW YOU AT CLUB SPINNAKER IN PANAMA CITY FLA. IN 98 ON YOUR BIRTHDAY, AND I NEVER EVER THOUGHT THAT ANY THING COULD BE AS GREAT...BUT THIS BLEW MY MIND!!!. I WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. AND STEVE EVEN TALKED TO ME! I CAUGHT ONE OF JEFF'S STICKS. I'LL KEEP IT FOREVER. YNGWIE...HE WAS REALLY FEELING IT, AND STEVE....MY GOD HE CAN'T BE HUMAN. THE ONLY THING NEGATIVE I HAVE TO SAY IS TO THE LIGHT GUY. LIGHTS WERE AMAZING ON THE BANDS, BUT NOT POINTING DIRECTLY IN MY EYES ON THE FIRST ROW!! WORK ON IT FOR ME PLEASE!? OTHER THAN THAT I AM GREATLY FULLFILLED. SEE YOU NEXT TIME!!

I don't know what the other guy was talking about when he said that you did not mix it up in the jam. Voodoo Child, Little Wing then Neil Young! That was mixed up to me. Anywhoo, I just wanted to say this is my third time to see you play live and you get better every time. I loved the improvised part at the end of Starry Night. I have noticed that you are becoming somewhat of a blues man. You use a lot of Pentatonic major and minor. But I think that rocks. The only thing that you need to change is the songs you play. I know that Summer Song and Satch Boogie great but play some different stuff. Suprise me! I just about know what you are going to play before I walk in the door. Also, I don't want to sound mean, but Malmsteen is awfull. It is great that he can play appeigios really fast but it gets old after the first five or ten minutes. I have one more thing left to say. Vai ROCKED!!!! I am still blown away by the tounge thing. I don't know how he did not cut it. He can't be human. Anyway, you ROCK Joe. So does Steve. Thanks for the music that you have shared with us all.

In a word.....WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

First, Yngwie was a new experience. Even though he's been around for years, this was really my first experience with his playing. The speed was impressive. A little more soul and a little less flash (it's not the 80's anymore) would suit my taste a little better. In a nutshell, I wasn't impressed, but I wasn't dissapointed.

Next, Steve...MR VAI! This was his night. Steve's sound was the best of any of the 5 times I've seen him. The open of his set was excellent - just walk out and say hello to everybody. I was trying to figure out why there was a chair left on the stage after the changeover. Steve's set was excellent - Juice, Drive the Hell Outa Here - AMAZING. And there was just enough show that it didn't interfere with the music.

Finally, Joe. What can I say. Satch Boogie is just such a perfect opening song. And I think I can speak for everyone when I say that Midnight was a surprise and was simply awe inspiring.

I do have 2 complaints. First, Joe and Steve - when the sets are this short, please don't play the LONG concert versions that take 10 minutes. Shorten the songs a little, and add one or two more to the set list. Second, enough with the Hendrix covers. I know they're easy to jam to, but how about mixing it up a bit. Last G3, LaGrange was awsome, partly because it was DIFFERENT! Other than that, It was simply amazing.
