I went to see joe the first night with my two brothers and I can quite honestly say that it was the most unbelievable night of my life.It was so good that I went the second night again and was lucky enough to get two tickets for me and my friend.my two brothers had gone the morning after the first gig as they live about 150 miles from Dublin.My friend never heard any of satriani's stuff but he said also it was an amazing expierience. As for the gig,my god where do I start.first of all Vicar street is a kick ass venue.It can hold about 500 satchaholics(all seated) about 400 on the bottom level and a balcony that can hold about 100.both nights I was on the bottom level right in front of Joe(which was nice). He kicked off with "time"(can't remember the order of every song) and every song was just in your face,it was awesome.Joe was just absolutley awesome.Some of the things he did with the guitar,my god he's good, and you can't really appreciate him until you see him live.stuart hamm was just amazing on the bass and the bass solo he did got the biggest ovation of the night,really amazing.highlights included "borg sex","rasberry jam delta v",etc.etc.etc. I got three picks over the 2 nights.One from eric cardieux,then on the second night after Joe played "rasberry jam delta v" he threw his pick into the crowd and I felt something hit my foot looked down and there it was.I was pretty happy to say the least. But the biggest highlight came on the second night when he came out and did "friends" and "surfin"(by the way three cheers to Joe for the nice statement before "friends" ,He said "its nice to come across so much water and still find friends to play in front of". But when he started "surfin" the place went mental and a lot of people went to the stage to get a better view,and I found myself right in front of him, and i could see his eyes through his sunglasses and he was so focused, so into it it was scary.But then with about a minute to go in the song I was so close to him that I reached out my right hand and touched his chrome guitar right beside the volume buttons and my hands were so sweaty that i watched my handprint dissapear on the chrome,wow.And as if that wasn't enough he shook my hand at the end of the night. absolutely amazing

Awesome gig, much better in the smaller Vicar Street venue than in the larger auditoium that is the Point Depot. I really felt like you got to know Joe because the distance that seperates you from the artist in the Point Depot wasn't there. I so glad to find that Joe Satriani is an extremely talented performer without any of the Holier than Thou bulls*** so prevalant among stars of his calibre. Keep it up Joe you're number 1.

Sorry i havent wrote earlier!I couldn't sign in. i was sitting at least a metre away from Satch, yes me, the one with the spiky hair!! i got his plec, and stu's, which i will keep and cherish for ever. ive got piles of pretty class pictures, and one in which hes lookin straight at me.It was the best moment of muy life!I don't believe i actually got to see him!I travelled 100 miles from Belfast aswell it cost me about 80 and for a 15 year old that's quite alot of money for me.I must have been the youngest there considering you had to be 18 to get in,but i wouldn't have missed this chance for the world.I now know what heaven is like!It couldn't have been better.Stu was class especially postman pat which got everyone up!Jeff+John where also brilliant.It was just FANTASTIC!!!! Biggest fan in N.Ireland at least!! Gareth Hunter You can mail me at Jake@onecooldude.com

Amazing live show. Intimate venue. Sitting about 10 yards from the greatest guitarist in the world. What more could you want? Yes I know..another beer leave it out. Playlist was excellent there was nothing short of brilliance as regards skill and pure entertainment. I am lazy so I won't tell you the rest. I will say that it was the coolest gig I've been to though.

I was seated at the right-hand side facing the stage, so I was in a good position to see The Great Bald One emerging from the shadows of the backstage during the opening bars of 'Time' to cooly greet the roaring crowd before launching into the aforementioned song's haunting melody. Faultless performance throughout the gig (as good as on 'Time Machine') with a perfect tone -- however it's a shame that the guitar was sometimes drowned-out by the bass and drums. I'd have also preferred if the venue weren't a seated one ( I really wanted to get-up and move to the man's muzik!!), but at least the small size of Vicar Street allowed for an intimate atmosphere ( and it was a cool--almost surreal--experience being less than 10 metres away from the only person in the world I truly idolize!). Stu's solo was amazing aswell -- I just felt sorry for Jeff and Eric not getting that much attention! Anyway, it was an unforgettable -- sometimes even transcendental -- gig, so COME BACK SOON ,SATCH!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHH! What a gig man, that was something else. I really enjoyed that! I'd have loved one of those plectrum's, but anyway. I had no idea Borg Sex was so good! Kudos on the new album man!!!! Where can I get the tab for Big Bad Moon?

This was just SO cool.It was my first time seeing Joe,and i can safely say it was one of the coolest gigs i was ever at.The vibe was just really relaxed.The set list was cool(i especially enjoyed love thing,and then that bass solo!!!!!). Got to meet Joe and the band after the gig,thanks to the online competition.Joe explained where he gets the names for a few of the songs,which was really cool,too!

Last time Joe was in Dublin it was at the point which is a huge place and i could barely see Joe.. excellent concert, this time it was in a small up close and personal place which was great as even though i was at the back on the second level i could see him as he was only about 30 feet or less away from me!! The songs were all my faves, he was great with the croud as always and it was a night to remember.. pity the score only goes as far as 10 as it deserves more!!

wow, what a show, the last time i was at this venue the que was going around the block for a steve vai concert, well this time when i arrived there was no que at all..damn i said to my self must be cancelled, but ahead on in i went anyway, when i went in i could`nt believe it. The place was just like a normal bar with the whole floor covered in tables with people drinking pints...it was so different to steve vai where everyone was standing and being crushed up the front this was a far more civilised event...well show time came and out strolled joe and played his chrome boy but it was just so weird everyone sitting down and joe noodling away a few feet away on the stage. i have toi say that his heart did`nt really seem in it for some of the songs and he looked slightly bored "man, he was yawing!!" but it was an excellent show and made all the better for being so intimate because you could really study joe`s technique and his general aura....overall it was a great gig, made all the better because i could have a few beers and not have a 200 pound physco jumping on my back.

Awesome!!! Couldn't have been any better. I was right at the front as close as it was possible to get (stage left). I caught a plectrum and met Joe outside after the show. Got Joe, Stu and Jeff to sign my ticket!!! Circles, Cool#9, Until we say goodbye and The Extremist were the highligths of the show for me anyway. Borg Sex was pretty cool too. In fact every song he played was fantastic. Cheers to Joe and the others for a super night of excellent music, and an awesome bass solo from Stu.

I would have ranked this gig 12, if I was let. Satch is just incredible, and as for Stu's bass solo...out of this world! After seeing Vai a few months back, I thought Joe had his work cut out for him, but he was just indescribable, the man is a living legend. Jeff was awesome too, to even try to describe how good Stu was would only do him injustice and Eric was incredible as well (fantastic on Borg Sex in particular). But Joe is still the master....

I am afraid i am not a happy chappy, sure joe is the coolest , and it doesnt matter what he plays, its all cool , my dissapointment lies in the fact that i didnt get into the gig! I was soooo looking foward to see joe for the first time but vicar street is over 18s only, i am 16 so i was deeply dissapointed, if onyl joe would start playing in the north of ireland, the ulster hall is a great venue for him. Sorry joe! wish i had of been there , hope it was good, actually i know it was probably top class!
