Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt & Tosin Abasi reunite for ‘Generation Axe’ US Tour!

Legendary Guitar Gods Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, and Tosin Abasi have today announced they will once again reunite as supergroup ‘Generation Axe‘ for a new 32-date US tour later this year, kicking things off at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA, on 7 November 2018.

Tickets for Generation Axe – A Night of Guitars will go on General Sale on 13 July 2018!

Steve Vai comments:

“The Generation Axe show is a unique performance of five fiercely talented guitar players coming together to create a 6-string extravaganza that is sure to amaze and delight. The Generation Axe experience goes way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. The idea was to create a seamless show with one backing band and 5 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. Guitar Jams like this can get really messy when there is no organization and my idea was to create parts for everybody to play in harmony and off each other so it’s not a mess of noise. This worked out remarkably well. There are places where everyone is playing together in wild harmony.”
