The term "supergroup" gets thrown around on a regular basis these days, however, a new tour featuring some of the greatest guitarists of all time is about to truly give the term a whole new meaning. Introducing "Generation Axe", featuring Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi.

Beginning on April 5 in Seattle, "Generation Axe - A Night Of Guitars" is hitting the road for 26 performances in North America. Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, February 19.


"The 'Generation Axe' show is a unique performance of five fiercely talented guitar players coming together to create a six-string extravaganza that is sure to amaze and delight," commented Steve Vai.

The "Generation Axe" fan experience will go way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. Each tour stop will include a variety of collaborations by the five players, including everyone performing together as one cohesive band with a rhythm section including Pete Griffin (Dweezil Zappa, Stanley Clarke, Edgar Winter) on bass and Nick Marinovich (Yngwie Malmsteen) on keys. Vai, Wylde, Malmsteen, Bettencourt and Abasi will perform songs from their various catalogs and join forces on some well-known songs (as well as probably a few unexpected, unearthed gems).

Making this rare tour experience even more special, "Generation Axe" VIP packages will be offered, giving fans access to these guitars masters and exclusive one-of-a-kind memorabilia. A front row package (including a meet-and-greet), a meet-and- greet package, and a VIP tour package will be available.

I think Nuno is a good guitarist. Yeah, Extreme gets a lot of flack, but if you just soak in the riffs, you'll hear it. He's also done session work with artists like Janet Jackson and others. It makes him a versatile player, which I think is a good thing.

Well...I hate to say this...worst concert I have ever attended.  I left early after Yngwie.  What a disappointment.

Was the music that bad or the organization around it?

First sone they all came out and it was nice. Each got to play a solo and it was cool.

Tosin Abasi - Very progressive. And distorted sound. He is actually was playing some of his songs but it was a bit too progressive for me.

Nuno Bettencourt - He was trying to be funny. But I don't really know his stuff and what he played just didn't sound appealing.

Zakk Wylde - He played non stop and actually went into the crowd to play. But it all sounded the same for about 30 minutes. He did play a Black Sabbath song that he kept playing for 15 minutes. It was just boring.

Yngwie Malmsteen - He was the reason I went. I loved the first song he did, but for the rest it was all about how fast he could play and how screechy he can get. Everyone kept mowing away from the stage and plugging their ears.

Steve Vai - He played one song with Yngwie and as soon as he went into screeching sound I left.

First concert I ever left early.
