REVIEW BY: Wrathchild

I paid $45 bucks for a general admission ticket to see G3 live at the House Of Blues inside of Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday night at 7pm. And this particular bill certainly is a guitar fanatic's dream come true!

Yngwie Malmsteen's current album is called Attack!! and his musicians did not include Doogie White on vocals, but instead Yngwie handled vocals and lead guitars, Mick Cervino on bass, Patrik Johansson on drums and Joakim Svalberg on keyboards.

Yngwie took to the stage with his trusty Stratocaster, grabbed the microphone and said "Las Vegas, Are You Ready To Rock?" the nearly full capacity audience were quite enthusiastic with their replies and cheers!

The highly energetic 40 minute setlist included:

Far Beyond The Sun / Baroque / Red House (with Yngwie on vocals) / Black Star / and a few others.

He even performed one song by himself playing guitar over a backing tape of a symphony and closed his set with the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Steve Vai's most recent album is The Secret Jewel Box and his musicians featured Billy Sheehan on bass, Tony MacAlpine on guitar & keyboards, Dave Weiner on additional guitar, Jeremy Colson on drums and of course shreddin' Steve on stunt guitar and vocals.

Steve casually walked onto the stage, sat down and said, "how about that Yngwie? He's a freak, but he's a good freak!" then began playing a triple neck guitar.

The setlist included:

The Reaper (from Bill and Ted's Bogus Adventure movie soundtrack) as well as For The Love Of God / Whispering A Prayer / Giant Balls Of Gold / Juice / and a few others.

The very satisfied crowd gave Steve Vai a standing ovation, he responded by saying, "Thank you, whaddya say I come back for more madness a little later?" …the crowd went wild!

Joe Satriani's band featured the one and only Jammin' Joe on lead guitars, Jeff Campitelli on drums, Matt Bissonette on bass, Galen Henson on additional guitar and they were promoting the album titled Strange Beautiful Music.

The setlist included:

Satch Boogie / Ice 9 / Flying In A Blue Dream / Always With You, Always With Me / Cool #9 / Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing / Summer Song

Despite a couple tunes sounding slightly more up temp than usual, the crowd loved every guitar lick that was presented.

G3 played: “Keep On Rockin' In The Free World” (with Joe on vocals), “Little Wing” (with Steve on vocals), “Voodoo Chile” (with Yngwie on vocals), then Billy Sheehan came back onstage to sing “La Grange.”

The riff-laden show ended around 10:30pm and approximately 1,500 guitar disciples exited the House Of Blues into the night illuminated by a full moon.

This utterly amazing tour of whammy bar virtuosity kicked off last night in Phoenix, Arizona and tomorrow G3 rocks San Diego!
