Even though it has almost been 2 weeks since I've seen the show, I still can't stop thinking about it. I've been listening to Joe since I was 14 years old and finally at 20 I was able to see him. It was truly an amazing show. I didn't know what to expect from Gilbert because I didn't know much of his stuff before hand but man he blew me away. His presence was awesome and I enjoyed his tunes. Petrucci usually doesn't have much stage presence but at that show he also suprised me. He seemed to be focused but yet really into it and interacted with the crowd more. Of course the highlight of the night for me was seeing satch. When he came out man I freaked out knowing I was finally going to see him and he didn't disappointment at all. I was hoping to hear "war" and he opened up with it. I was hoping he was going to play "Not of this earth" and he played the intro of it before going into circles but saddly he didn't play it. Of course the jams were awesome, Joe playing with his teeth, Gilbert whipping out the power drill and petrucci just alternate picking like no other. By the end of the night I definitly needed a change of pants, it was just that good of a show.

I have to say this show was spectacular. I am only seventeen years old but I have been to a good fifty concerts or so and this show is definitely in the top five. Paul, Joe and John all looked like they were having a blast and played flawlessly as usual. The jams together were great and you could really see everyone improvising with their own style. The highlights of the show to me were the jumping jack flash cover at the end, and of course "circles" because that song is just perfect. It was a cool transition from "always with me always with you" to a little improv jam where Petrucci came out and then Gilbert followed. The rest of the bands were sensational also. Larue is an obvious stand out on the bass. Too bad I didn't get tickets to any of the other shows in the tour, it was just really something. It happened to be my first and only time so far seeing Joe and it was a great experience. His playing really changed my musical tastes, inspiration and desires.

I've been seeing G3 shows for 10 years, and I think I enjoyed this one more than ever. Part of the reason is because they played 5 jam songs (unlike in the past when they played only 3). So that was a real treat. And they looked like they were having a lot of fun. Paul Gilbert adds to that feeling, because he's always smiling ... lots of great facial expressions. BTW, Satriani's riffs in the jams are really great. He's loves that sort of back and forth, and it's obvious for the audience to see. I really liked Petrucci's set. Last time when he played G3, no one was familiar with his set ... his songs were new. This time, the audience was familiar with the tunes from his album. So we could really enjoy them. His drummer was amazing too. This was a fantastic show ... 3:45 in running time ... a solid 3:15 in playing time. Really spectacular!

First of all the day in Manhatten started by bumping into "Joe" and crew unloading on 33rd st. They gave us directions to were to "get in" to MSG.The meet and greet session went fantastic. Except for this "one" person who thought it was "his session". Come on - let someone else speak. Anyway..Going to our seats (2ND ROW CENTER), We were treated to some pretty Dam Hot Cooking, loud, bass ripping, ears stinging ,smokin solos. Of course Joe was at his BEST.John Petrucci really SURPRISED me. As a matter of fact , everyone SURPRISED me. From Bruce to Paul Gilbert, to Dave "mister DOUBLETIME Rue". And that that Drummer who kept on hitting his head. What A smokin show. "Keep Rockin" Joe, your fellow Brothers are Ripping it up with you. Peace,LETS HAVE IT ALREADY.

It was definitely a kick-ass show last night. I had never heard that much of Racer X or Paul Gilbert but he can definitely shred. Guitarist Bruce Bouillet from Racer X played alongside Paul and was also pretty nasty. They played (not in any order), Hurry Up, Technical Difficulties, Rusty Old Boat, Scarified, Scit Scat Wah, a quick tease of To Be With You, Down to Mexico, and 1 or 2 others. They closed with Down to Mexico which was the best song in Paul's set I thought. John Petrucci also played a great set of songs from Suspended Animation. Jaws of Life has one of the heaviest riffs that I've heard in a long time; while Wishful Thinking was my favorite of his set. I love that melody. Then Joe came out and tore it up. He was on fire last night. He opened with Friends I believe, then One Big Rush, Flying in a Blue Dream, Cool #9, Super Colossal, Mystical, Circles, Satch Boogie, Surfing With the Alien, and closed with Always With Me, Always With You. A dynamite set; my favorite was Cool #9, they really jammed out on that one. My only complaint was that he didn't play Crushing Day or The Crush of Love but I wasn't expecting him to. You can't have everything. John came out first at the end of Always and then Paul came out and they finished the song, then started trading some riffs back and forth. For the jam they played Foxy Lady (sick) right into Purple Haze and then a couple of Voodoo Child riffs. Then they played Goin' Down from the first G3 album and it was awesome! Finally they closed with Jumpin' Jack Flash (Bruce came back out for this one and Joe put his guitar down and came out wearing a Jamaican hat with some fake dreadlocks) and traded some more licks. I was more than pleased with the jam. My only complaint was that Paul's guitar should have been turned up a little bit more, at times he was drowned out by John and Joe. The show clocked in at just under 4 hours; it was a blast.

Paul was up first. He played some stuff from his new album "Get out of my yard". Then along with former Racer X member Bruce Bouillet they jammed to some Racer X songs. Next up was John Petrucci with the amazing Mike Portnoy and Dave Larue, who was also of course playing with Joe Satriani that night. John played songs off his new solo albulm "Suspended Animation". Some favorites of mine from that night were Jaws of life, Glasgow kiss, Wishful thinking and the flawlessly preformed "Damage control". Joe Satriani! Can't say much more about him thats not already been said. One word describes his playing that night, INCREDIBLE! Satch came up on stage and thrilled the packed theater with some songs like Flying in a blue dream, Cool #9, Super Colossal, Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing, and much more... Then lastly the best part of the night, the G3 Jam. Paul, John and Joe all on stage ripped out some Hendrix tunes and a song by the Rolling Stones (i won't ruin the surprise). Awesome show!! Really hope they come back to New York soon!
