For the first time, Joe came to Portugal to do a show of his own (he'd been here twice, once opening for AC/DC and two years ago, at SuperBock festival). And I simply wonder how come this show didn't happenned sooner! Joe has an entourage of fans here in Portugal! Lisbon nearly sold out (and if it wasn't for the price on the tickets, which drove a few fans away, i'm sure), and I am proud to say that... well, the ends meet!
I've been following Joe's career for the last 20 years, since I got my hands on a "Crushing Day" single, around 1988, and I feel free to say:
- April '30, that amazing concert, didn't quite surprised me. Because Joe did his best. And his best is simply awesome! I couldn't have asked for more!
- 20 years passed, and Joe goes far beyond pleasing the usual fan-mob. He has the capability to reinvent himself, without drifting and tumbling away from his "sound". And if "Super Colossal" was a good, but yet "more of the same" album, it predicted a probable return of a guitar-hero to his very own roots. "Captain Satchafunkilus" is absolute Satriani Kick-Ass Rock! 20 years from now, some of the tracks on the new album will be listed as "must-do"'s in concerts and CD anthologies, and the reaction in concert to some songs can already show that!
- The concert, first one of the european tour, was also a good example of what a musician, an artist, has to do; instead of "dumping out" the new album and then play the old stuff back and forth, Joe did 5 or 6 songs from the new album, and then surprised everybody when, between some of the "oldies", he played "Time Machine", sat on a chair to play "Crushing Day" and revisited "Cryin'", which had been out of his live set for a while.

Let me resume just by saying that myself and, I'm sure, all the fans here in Portugal, want you to come back soon, Joe! Solo, or with the G3 guys, we just want to ROCK!

THANK YOU!

What a concert, it was great. The setlist was great too with some good surprises (Time Machine, Crushing day and specially Cryin'). The whole band's performance was great and about Joe... how can you play so damn perfect like that.. truely awesome, you really are an inspiration, love your music.

The bass solo was also great, everyone was blown away. Crowd chant was great too, everybody was singing :D

Once more thanks for the great night. Hope you to see you soon back in Portugal again.

Cheers
