Steve Vai: where the wild things are promo

Guitar legend Steve Vai will release his concert film and live album "Live In Minneapolis - Where The Wild Things Are" September 29th, 2009 on Favored Nations Records. The show was recorded and filmed at the State Theatre in Minneapolis, MN before a sold-out audience as part of Vais successful Sound Theories world tour.
Vai is widely known for both his unprecedented guitar playing techniques and the unique design of his signature series Ibanez Jem guitar. But his fans have become inextricably drawn to his melodic depth, and dynamic stage performance. The continued evolution of his craft is made apparent in the astonishing musicianship presented in "Live In Minneapolis - Where The Wild Things Are". The 2 hour and 40 minute set contains several new tracks and re-orchestrated pieces culled from his rich catalog. His guitar-wielding extravaganza in 'The Murder' is an artistic performance piece that must be seen to be believed.

The addition of virtuoso violinists Alex DePue and Ann Marie Calhoun add a dazzling dimension to Vai's compositions and stage show, delivering fans the unexpected edge they always expect. Other world-class musicians chosen for Vai's band are: Bryan Beller (bass), Jeremy Colson (drums), Dave Weiner (guitar and sitar) and Zack Wiesinger (lap steel).

"Live In Minneapolis - Where The Wild Things Are" is available on DVD, Blu-ray, and audio CD on September 29th.

Dario Lorina says:
After being brought to our attention, the magazine cover seen in this post and others, is fake.

Contrary to the many rumors on the internet, Dario Lorina is not "Ozzy's New Axeman". Dario has nothing but respect for both Ozzy and Zakk and wishes them the best.

Looks like this one is set to run and run... thanks Ed.... looks like it's Gus G then... LOL
