Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tosin Abasi tour
The "Generation Axe - A Night Of Guitars" tour will take to the road in North America this spring. The "supergroup" Generation Axe features renowned guitarists Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, and Tosin Abasi.
"The 'Generation Axe' fan experience will go way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. Each tour stop will include a variety of collaborations by the five players, including everyone performing together as one cohesive band with a rhythm section including Pete Griffin (Dweezil Zappa, Stanley Clarke, Edgar Winter) on bass and Nick Marinovich (Yngwie Malmsteen) on keys. Vai, Wylde, Malmsteen, Bettencourt and Abasi will perform songs from their various catalogs and join forces on some well-known songs (as well as probably a few unexpected, unearthed gems).:Dates for the trek can be found below, with tickets and vip packages available at generationaxe.com. 4/5 Seattle, WA @ Paramount Theatre 4/6 Vancouver, BC @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre 4/8 Oakland, CA @ Fox Theater 4/9 Las Vegas, NV @ The Joint 4/10 San Diego, CA @ Humphrey's Concerts By The Bay 4/11 Los Angeles, CA @ The Wiltern 4/13 Denver, CO @ Paramount Theatre 4/15 Kansas City, MO @ Uptown Theatre 4/16 Salina, KS @ The Stiefel Theatre 4/17 Dallas, TX @ Bomb Factory 4/18 Houston, TX @ Revention Music Center 4/20 Jacksonville, FL @ Florida Theatre 4/21 Orlando, FL @ Hard Rock Live 4/23 Wilmington, NC @ Cape Fear Community College 4/24 Washington, DC @ Warner Theatre 4/25 Cincinnati, OH @ Taft Theatre 4/26 Indianapolis, IN @ Murat Theatre 4/27 Nashville, TN @ Ryman Auditorium 4/29 Chicago, IL @ Copernicus Center 5/1 Madison, WI @ Orpheum Theatre 5/2 Royal Oak, MI @ Royal Oak Music Theatre 5/4 Toronto, ON @ Massey Hall 5/5 Upper Darby, PA @ Tower Theater 5/6 Westbury, NY @ Theatre at Westbury 5/7 Hampton Beach, NH @ Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom 5/8 Providence, RI @ Providence Performing Arts Center
