Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen Announce New Tour


Steve Vai’s progressive guitar supergroup Generation Axe have announced a 32-date North American tour that will run from November through the end of the year. The trek begins in Oakland at the Fox Theater on Nov. 7. Tour dates and additional information are below. “The Generation Axe experience goes way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam,” Vai said in the press release for the jaunt. “The idea was to create a seamless show with one backing band and five completely accomplished and astonishing guitarists that take to the stage in various configurations, performing some of their solo music and merging together as cohesive co-creators of lushly orchestrated guitar extravaganzas.” Able backing for the five guitarists will come courtesy of bassist Pete Griffin (Dweezil Zappa, Stanley Clarke, Edgar Winter), keyboardist Nick Marinovich (Yngwie Malmsteen) and drummer JP Bouvet. This is the second U.S. tour for the collective, which last joined forces in 2016 (in North America) and 2017 (in Asia). The group’s last tour included covers of such classic songs as Deep Purple’s “Highway Star” and the Edgar Winter Group’s “Frankenstein.” Listen to Generation Axe Perform ‘Frankenstein’ The 2018 Generation Axe Tour will close out its run on Dec. 18 at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. General on-sale goes live July 13.
