Amp sound was the best I have ever heard. Very heavy but with lots of sustain. I have seen Van Halen this year and Eddie didn't even come close to of good of tone as Joe. My only problem was with the bass player. Maybe that is because he came on after Billy Sheanen (I don't know how to spell his last name). But, I could not hear him very well. Anyway, I love the Peavey JSX. Tons of high quality TONE!!!!!!!

This show was great and i can't wait to go again. Since it was my first G3, i don't have anything to compare it to but i'm sure it's just as good everytime. The only thing that ruined it for me was Yngwie's set that seemed to go on for hours and hours and days...Ya he's definitely an ego-maniac, but he can still play for sure. I think they should get Jeff Beck or McAlpine to be the third man next time. I can't beleive McAlpine wasn't the third guy this year! And i'm mad that i didn't get to see Stu Hamm this time! That was one of the things i was looking forward to seeing! But all well, Mr. Bisonette did a fine, fine job. And how about BIlly! that was a surprise! All in all, this show had my ears ringing for days afterwards. Excellent.

All i can say is that the show was awesome. Vai was awesome and sounded great with his band, and Joe was perfect. He played a great set with great songs like satch boogie, always with me/you, flying in a blue dream,starry night,midnight, TMPHGT, summer song, etc. and played a very cool blues riff (waiting for jeff) when jeffs drums went out, but he never panicked or anything, just kept on playing. Satch is probably one of the best out there by far, he has much more of a melodic side to his songs also. Satch's band was also perfect. The jam at the end was also very cool, with voodoo child, little wing, and keep on rockin in the freeworld. As for Yngwie, the guy's a great guitar player and still one of the best, but his set was very boring to me, and the songs sounded like they just kept on repeating and repeating. He crammed a million notes into his solos, His overall sound was blended together also, his guitar was hard to hear, his solo just went on and on, and the kicking and twirling the guitar around his neck got old quick. Thats what is nice about Joe, he just goes out and plays, he doesn't have to do all that other stuff. Joes new js's looked and sounded awesome too. Can't wait for the future g3 tour, but for the third slot, get somebody like Eric Clapton or Eddie Van Halen, or Ty Tabor, someone more entertaing then malmsteen.

Oh, YEAH! One of the best ever concerts I've ever been to. It was something else! Malmsteen.... Sheesh! What more needs be said. He's cool though- and much gifted. VAI..... What exciting music and his talent is just extreme! I really revere him and appreciate all that he's giving the world in terms of music and humanity. He's a gentleman! Satriani- superlatives can't begin to describe. He's inspired millions and brings music to another pinnacle. One more thing- another gentleman musician. And, he can P L A Y that guitar like no one else! Music to my ears? YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you to all 3 for a most extraordinary evening at the Palace. It was GREAT to share this evening with my future rock musician son- Nik. Cathie

Without a doubt, the greatest group of guitarists ever assembled. Their individual abilities provided a sense of humbleness for those grounded on earth. A special thanks to the crew for fixing and then constantly tweaking the equipment so we could continue to enjoy the show. Yngwie was just as good as he was in 1986 when he toured with AC ~ DC, just a little winded now, but hell I defy any critic to pick up their axe and assailed it for as long as him. Mr. Via was the most puzzling aspect of the show. He has such talent and direction, but the redundancy of additional guitarists was odd. Then coupled with the fact that he only played a set of mediocre tunes, in my opinion it seems as though he left the best for some other venue. What the hell we all have off days, aye? Satch, what can be said about perfection. From the onset he displayed his pure professionalism and talent. Adding the "Waiting on Jeff (Yngwie) Blues," was a nice touch, and Satch seemed at one with himself and the music. Casting the occaisonal smile outward touched us all. Thanks for the Neil Young too! By far the greatest musical extravaganza to hit this pebble in the Universal pond. One note to Melissa Dragitch and Sony Music. Suck my dick! There were more cameras at this show than a Bush Press Conference. I tried the honorable thing and asked for permission to take some stills for my anniversary, NO. Well, kiss the fatty part my ass bitch, and guess how far up you have to go when I weigh 130 pounds?

First of all, let me say this was by far one the the best shows I have attended I was sitting 4th row center. It was my 7th time seeing Joe. I have seen Steve play with David Lee Roth, Whitesnake and Solo many times. First time seeing Yngwie. I don't care what any of the other reviews said about Yngwie, he put on a good show. Steve was awesome as usual, his playing was so intense and each note was dead on. What can I say about Joe Satriani....absolutly the bast. Noone can top him. From start to finish it was all good. Hope to see you guys again soon.

Absolutely incredible! Uncle Satch stole the show at the end with his endless amount of hits. And what a perfect sounding guitar, he's the best on the G3 tour this year!

To sum this concert up in one word, I would have to say AMAZING! I was totally happy throughout the entire show. In fact, my mood only got better and better as the night went on. Yngwie Malmsteen played first. I was rather skeptical of how he would perform, because he has a reputation of being somewhat of a "douche." At this show however, that was not the case. His playing was mesmerizing. Lightening fast soloing, and a good hard rock sound that gets you ready for a long night of rock. Malmsteen's band was extremely good as well. During one part of the show, Malmsteen stepped aside, and each member took turns soloing. This was quite impressive. My favorite song from Malmsteen's set had to be Black Star. This was the song that I, personally, had known him for best, and it was splendidly done. The next up, was Steve Vai. I knew Vai would be good, but I never thought that he would be as good as he was. He began the show sitting in a chair with an enormous three necked guitar, just casually picking away. Later in his set, he, Billy Shehan, and his other two guitarists stood one in front of the other, and each played the other's neck. This was quite an amazing feat to watch, and probably my favorite part of Vai's set. The third spot was taken up by Joe Satriani. Now, I did not think that it was possible to like Satch any more than I already had, but last night's show completely proved that wrong. To describe Satch's set, one could use the word Perfection. From the beginning of his set with Satch Boogie, to the very end with Summer Song, I was left totally awestricken by his performance. This set, was by far, my favorite of the entire show. The final event of the night, was the "G3 Jam." This was alot of fun to watch. Joe called Malmsteen and Vai back out, and they played covers of Jimmi Hendrix's Voodoo Chile (Malmsteen on vocals), and Little Wing (Vai on vocals), as well as a cover of Neil Young's Rockin' The Free World (Satch on vocals). I gave this concert a rating of 10, because I believe that it was a simply outstanding concert. There was not a minute of the show that I did not enjoy.

My god, I could die right now and not mind at all, that concert was ****. I was in the 2nd row and I ...I don't even know what to say.

Yngwie opened and was entertaining, I can't really get into his style but man he can play. Not familiar with his songs but they kicked.

Steve Vai: Steve, come on, dude, you just walked out there like you're sweet and sat down and ripped up that triple neck! I...again, speechless. Having spent the last several months learning Juice little by little and having finally finished learning it...Having seen him play it just thrilled the hell out of me, I love that damn song. Then he plays this song, reaper? i don't know but he's playing with his whammy bar..no not doin dives'n stuff, he popped it OUT and played WITH it, then he blew out some harmonics ...blew as in with breath and used his tongue also. Steve, you're gonna be some tough boots to fill, hope I'll get to play in a future G3 tour lol He played Whispering a Prayer and it was so beautiful, loved the little tiny changes and nuances, so very nice. For the Love of God was a blast, I was totally Wah'n the "come on" part of the song , I swear ya looked at me, I was so into it.(had my Berklee shirt on!)

Joe Satriani: Perfection. Satch Boogie rocked, Extremist was kick'n, and then bam out of no where, Crystal Planet, one of my favorite songs of all time. That was crazy heavy and hard hitting and got everyone moving. He busted out midnight which was really nice. Then drums went out so he jammed some blues between songs and I don't think I will ever stop being surprised and impressed by this man. Always with Me was perfect. Flying in a Blue Dream was awesome of course. Summer Song...This was the best I've ever heard it played, it had so much energy I couldn't even comprehend how sweet that song is. Joe you are an incredible inspiration to me.

I hope I didn't forget any of the songs that were played but they were all amazing!

The Jam was nuts: Voodoo child was great, Little Wing was so kewl, and Rocking in the Free World was very heavy and was the perfect finale!

Can't freak'n wait till the next tour!!!

Alright, I'm out, peace! -Nik

Last night's G3 show was great! Although, it may not have been the best of the dozen or so shows I have seen, it certainly rates near the top. It was very interesting to see Yngwie in this mix. When I first saw him in 1985 in Detroit with Talas (yes, Billy Sheehan's old band) his playing just totally blew my mind. 18 years later (and a few extra pounds) he's still pretty amazing. Steve's set was the most puzzling. First, the unusual "less than grand" entrance he made which is very uncharacteristic of Mr. Vai. To just simply walk out on stage with the house lights on and sit down on a chair and start playing alone seemed very strange. Despite his lack-luster entrance, his showmanship was certainly there in all it's grandure. But I must agree with the other reviews pointing out his set choice and the feeling that his heart just wasn't in his performance last night. Then there was Joe! As expected, his set was flawless. His playing was energetic and he seemed to be completely in his groove. Even the cool-headed reaction to the "drum issue" didn't throw him off his game....a true testament to his experience and professionalism. Although I would have preferred to see Stu instead of Greg on bass since the dymamic between Joe, Jeff and Stu has always proven to be the best chemistry, but oh well, perhaps on the next tour we'll see Stu return. Overall, it was a great show. To see that kind of talent in the same night and on the same stage together is always awe inspiring. Keep up the great work guys and I'll be there for the next one!

Satriani ~ was 100% amazing!!!! he has never souned better, his new guitars were great and his tone was untouchable.......i was just really hopeing to hear him jam..." i beileve" and " the forgotten pt2" but either way joe was once again the show stopper!! he was GREAT!!!! Vai ~ blew my mind!!!! he is getting bettter and better every year!!! his band is outstanding and they sounded amazing!!!! and when steve came out....with the tripple neck!!!!!! i knew tonight would be special!!! his tone was GREAT!!!! and having Tony MacAlpine on tour this year was AMAZING!!!!!! I HOPE SATRIANI GETS WIND OF THIS AND REALALIZES THAT TONY WOULD MAKE A AMAZING 3RD G MAN!!!!!!!

As the show began, Yngwie's band comes on in an over powering cloud of smoke. I'm sorry to say though he needs a sound crew to compliment his great guitar playing. I could hardly make out what they were playing with the over powering sound coming off stage. It all blended together into one big blob of distorted volume. Steve however sounded pretty good and what a guitar player! I was not too familiar with his material but he sounded fantastic! Steve is also a great entertainer. THEN.... Then out comes Joe!! As good as Steve and Yngwie are, there's just no comparison to the things Joe can play on his guitars. The sound was perfect. He hits every note as it should be, clear and crisp. Except for the technical problem they had with the drums, he even ab-libbed through the repair like the true professional he is. I don't know what the story is with his bass players. A lot of people seem to like Stu on the bottom end. Joe is by far the BEST guitar player I've ever heard! I'll bet if Hendrix was still here, he would even agree. Joe Satriani alone is worth the price of admission! At any price! To think Rolling Stone Magazine didn't even rate him in the top 100 guitar players of all time. I don't think Yngwie and Steve are rated either. Where the hell they been? If these guys are coming to your town, GO SEE THEM! You won't regret a moment of it.

OK first of if you didn't know that Yngwie was an ego maniac then you probably were not a fan.....he looks a little rough around the edges but he still shreds like a demon!! Steve & Billy were awsome and Mcalpine was icing on the cake. Steve opened up with a solo piece with his 3 necked Ibanez and just contnued to pull all the stops during his show. Joe was awsome, Satch boogie, Flying in a blue dream, Stary night, Midnight, Always w/ me Aways W/ you, One big rush, TMPHGT, Summer song and the an imprompt blues solo. Best concert I've ever seen.
