Steve Vai -- Boston, MA -- September 13th, 2012
 
I had been waiting for this show for months because I had never seen Steve before and he is one of the main reasons I started playing guitar.

This was at the Wilbur Theater, a historic 1,200 capacity theater in the heart of Boston's Theater district on Tremont Street. Couldn't have booked a better venue for this show. Everyone was up close & personal and the sound was stellar.

Beverly McClellan opened the show. Apparently she was a contestant on The Voice. I don't watch the show, so I had no idea. She sounded amazing though, excellent voice.

The only downfall of the night was a major technical fuck up early in Steve's set that took almost a half hour to fix (it ended up being a faulty Wah pedal, of all things). Other than that, everything was amazing. Stellar musicianship & sound, killer setlist and a blast of a show.

Setlist....

1. Racing The World

3. Building The Church
4. Tender Surrender (technical problems happened 3/4 through this song)

And Steve Vai has just come up with a way to ruin a perfectly good concert.

I saw the show in Durham, NC a few weeks ago. Vai was phenomenal as usual.

The on the spot audience written song was actually quite fun - not a concert ruiner by any stretch.
