Live In Tokyo
G3, a guitar supergroup that features top-tier shredders Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and John Petrucci, is a guitar-lover's dream come true, as heard on their latest DVD release "Live In Tokyo". The trio of guitarist's usual high energy is cranked up even higher on this live Tokyo date, and the amount of heavy riffing and blistering leads throughout the set is mightily ferocious. Petrucci, who rose to prominence in the progressive metal band Dream Theater, distinguishes himself here, and proves that his six-string skills are on par with revered axe-slinging of Vai and Satriani. In addition to some extended jams, there are covers of classic, guitar-defining rock songs (Deep Purple's "Smoke On the Water" and Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady," among them) that add a dash of fun to the jaw-dropping pyrotechnics served up on "Live In Tokyo".
Special DVD features include: 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound Audio, PCM Stereo, G3 Soundcheck with Individual Audio Commentaries by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John Petrucci.
The DVD includes the songs (Petrucci) "Glasgow Kiss", "Damage Control", (Vai) "The Audience Is Listening", "Building The Church", "K'm-Pee-Du-Wee", (Satriani) "Up In Flames", "Searching", "War", (All) "Foxey Lady", "La Grange" and "Smoke On The Water".
