The Rapids Theatre welcomes guitar legends to Niagara Falls Saturday, Nov. 24, when supergroup Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi bring the "Generation Axe Tour" to town. The show begins at 7 p.m. Saturday at 1711 Main St.
Tickets for the all-ages show (under 16 admittance with adult 18 and older) go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. The cost is $45 advance or $50 day of show (if available). Tickets are available at the Rapids Theatre box office, online at www.ticketfly.com, and by phone at 877-435-9849.
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, Nick Marinovich on keys, and JP Bouvet on drums. Vai, Wylde, Malmsteen, Bettencourt and Abasi will perform songs from their various catalogs and join forces on some well-known songs.
Vai said, "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 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."
