Hi there Joe, I am from India and to me you are the one who changed a lot of things in my life and that includes my outlook and one day I shall jam wih you. Anyways the show in India,Bombay was mindblowing. The moment Joe entered and blasted of with Up in the sky, we knew we were in another territory.Within moments Joe and the band had created a fantastic soundscape which one could'nt and would'nt want to leave.I did not expect a very dynamic performance considering I have seen a few videos but this ime it shocked me to see Joe prancing around with full velocity.The way the show ended was amazing i.e friends nice way to say goodbye, most of all the last few songs were mind blowing such as surfing,flying,war, going down.The reason I rate it a 9 is coz my favs. crystal planet, ceremony, crush of love, crushing day and circles were not played and a few offbeat ones were Anyways I am not complaining coz it was the most memorable night of my life as of yet.Thanks Joe for coming to India, you may not believe this but it's a dream come true to see you perform BEST SONGS-Always with me, always with you, starry night, up in the sky, surfing, flying in a blue dream,morrocan sunset, friends, going down, BAD ONES- the singing ones. Cya Joe

The show at MMRDA Grounds in Mumbai was just like any other Satch show. AMAZING, GODLY, OUTSTANDING!!! But what would you expect. It's SATCH... However, these words don't do any justice to the performance. How can put it into words when your Hero, Your God, blesses you with His divine presence and songs. And is still willing to keep on going if you wish for it which he did so willingly. Ending of with "Surfin With The Alien", " Going Down", and "Friends" was a dissapointment, simply because, it was an end. It wouldn't matter if He played just one song for all eternity, it would still be an eternity of bliss...

It was a nite to remember ... to cherish ...

The GOD himself had come down to the MMRDA grnds Bandra mumbai ... to enthrall His mortal audience with a music which the blind could see ... the deaf could hear ... music which could pump life into a corpse ... The 8000 strong crowd waited patiently for 2 hours b4 the schedule just not to miss a single "see", a single "hear" from the cool goggle clad, shaved head GOD.

The show started with "Up In the Sky". The ticket money that we paid ... got over on this very song ... and O' boy who knew that there were 19 more tracks to come .... Then came the cooolest song .... my favourite ... cool as a breeze, COOL # 9. By the time He played "Flying in a blue dream", we were already out of this world ... in the GOD's durbar ... "the heaven" :)

This is the divine creature who has professionally taught "Metallica", "GnR", Steve Vai ... and the like ... who themselves are considered to be the Gods of music !!!

The other songs that we had the extereme privilege to listen were - "Is there love in space", "Starry night", "The Mountain song".

And last but not the least ... the penultimate one - "morrocan sunset" followed by the laaast "Psycho monkey" !!! What a show it waaaas !!! killing performance ... No wonder they had scores of ambulances lined up outside the stage ... :D

But was that the End ???????????? NOOOOOOOO WAAAY !!!!!!!!!! the worshippers wouldnt just let the GOD leave like that !!! The worshippers kept chanting "more" "more" .... Their penance was answered ... and the GOD reappeard !!!

So, finally ... last but not the least .... the penultimate one ... again my fav - "Surfing with an alien". Phew !!!!!!!!!! what energy ... equivalent to a 1000 atom bombs exploding inside of u !!! And the last song ... "Friends" left us gasping for more !!! That brought to an end, a show which I would rate the best till now ... A show the memoirs of which would last for 7 of my lives ... A show for which I have already sinned by putting it into words ...

Guys, am still not out of the MMRDA show, it wasa life time achievement, coz I’ve been listening Joe almost last 17 years. since from the day he launched his 1st album ( Not Of This Earth ) & in this show, what a decent start & huge end with - going down, summer Song & Friends. it was the happiest moment in my life, i never imagine that one day i could see Satch playing in front of me, i wish if i could see those 3 man army ( G3), anyway, guys .. Steve Vai & Billy Sheehan might be comming in the end of this year. Hope we all guys meet there.

Yo Satch...

Hi guys, I know this is late but what the heck, better late than never. Well i went for joe satriani show at bandra..with my friends and it was teh most amazing show i have ever seen!!..The way Satriani played and interacted with the crowd was amazing..everyone went crazy on his amazing guitaring! It really showed his stamina and incredible skill in playing almost 2 1/2 to 3 hrs of instrumental guitaring..I have been to many other International live concerts in mumbai but the max they lasted for was one and a half hours..which was a big disappointment to us...BUT Joe Satriani played for soooo long mann.. it was GREAT !!!!!..even at the end the crowd asked for " one more"...and joe was so great he did come back and play..not one...but 3 more songs...the fans went hysterical !!!..after the show everyone was talking about how awesome the show was and that it was worth every penny!!..we were zapped after the show. we got some info that joe was staying at a particular hotel and we zoomed off in our car after the show to try to get a glimpse of him..but when we reached the hotel he wasn't there...but we were determined to meet the God of guitar so we researched and found his room no. ( don't ask how) lol...went up to the room..but didn't want to disturb him so we came back!!..then we got some info he would be coming to Bombay next week on May 18th..Beleive me we wanted to be there..I called up my office and reported in sick..and me, my bro and cousin bro..all drove to the hotel where he was expected...waited for 3 hours..no sign of him..then finally he arrived !!..It was amazing..we were so close to him..then he was about to go up to his room when my bro asked him for a picture..Satriani said he would come back down..and went up in the Elevator..we were disppointed and thought he would not come back down to meet us in the Lobby..BUT about 5 mins later we were shocked to find Satriani back down in the Lobby to meet us..this was AWESOME MAN !! I mean..Joe Satriani is one heck of a guy..to be such a BIG star and come down to meet us after a tiring flight was really touching..I must say Joe really know how to treat his fans..the whole hotel staff was in awe as he came to meet us..we clicked a few pics with him.I even shoook hands with JOE !!!!!!!! I COULDN'T BELEIVE IT !!! HE WAS SO DOWN TO EARTH..!!..he even autographed my cousins IBANEZ GUITAR..woww!!!!..then we spoke to him for like 5 mins about his future plans..joe said he was making music for a computer racing game.NASCAR..beleive me i'm goona get the game..being a racing enthu myself..then joe went back to his room..and we left in a daze..!!!!!...I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT JOE SATRIANI IS A HECK OF A GUY WHO KNOWS HIS FANS AND WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THEM..WE REALLY APPRECIATED IT !!!...JOE IF YOU'RE READING THIS..WE ARE THE GUYS AT THE HOTEL WHO TOOK PICS WITH YOU ,SPOKE WITH YOU AND WHOSE RED IBANEZ YOU SIGNED FOR US..THANKS A MILLION, JOE...AND PLSSS COME BACK AGAIN !!!!..WE ALL LOVE YOU !!

The Joe Sat concert at MMRDA was awesome. I have been to other concerts as well but this one was definately the best. To Watch Joe perform live for THREE Hours ..... Yes THREE HOURS was a dream come true!!!! I have been listening to SATCH sine I was 15 but listening to him live and seeing him perform on stage just a few feet from me was simply amazing. This was a once in a lifetime concert and definately a concert I COULD NOT MISS.

Hope to see you come back to Bombay with G3.

on may 13th 2005 i had the best 3 hrs of my life.FRONT ROW at a SATCH concert. this was a dream come true fro me It was unbeleivable.his hands flew across the fret board on his custom Ibanez the only thing that i missed was... that i didn't catch a guitar-pick or a drumstick or didn't get an autograph or a chance to meet Joe & the band.. But Joe did point at me FRIKIN' AWESOME . Thanks alot joe. i hope u come along wit G3 next time. first of all the only reason i give it 9 and not 10 is because i wanted to see the mystical potato head groove thing. the concert was unbelievable. i still cant believe it. wat an awesome setlist. crystal planet resurrected.....time , psycho monkey , crystal planet. then came bamboo , is there love in space followed by starry night. from the extremist we got friends , war , summer song. from surfing there was satch boogie and surfing. then came cool #9 . he also played moroccan sunset ,goin down n some other parts wich i cdnt remeber the names of. sorry if the order is wrong. joe next time plz perform WHY and MYSTICAL POTATO HEAD GROOVE THING. I hope someone bootlegged the show or the management recorded it. ne1 who did plz contact me ASAP. PS u shd have brought john petrucci and steve vai along wit u lol thnx alot joe. Mikhail.

One of the best so far , from the fillmore to the warfield to the chronicle pavillion (even the anthem at pac bell park !!which was quite cool ) this is by far the best satch show ive been to ..its nice to have seen joe away from the bay for a change and i think joe had a great time too ;o) with the crowd humming along n all i havent experienced that before .. so lets hope we did leave a lasting impression long enough to effect thought on a g3 tour the next time around. And lets hope we can get a shot a booing poor stu ; tag him along too we miss him !

ON 13TH MAY 2005 I WAS THERE AT THE VENUE AT 12 IN THE NOON WHEN THE SHOW IS STARTING AT 19:00 HRS. I WAS RELUCTATNT TO GO IN CAUSE I WAS SCARED THAT THE ORGANISERS WOULDNT LET ME IN. I WAS WAITING THERE IN THE SCOURGING HEAT SO THAT I COULD BE THE FIRST TO ENTER THE SHOW. HOWEVER I MET ANOTHER FRIEND KUMAR WHO WAS APPARENTLY WAITIN FROM 10:00 IN THE MORNING. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT MYSELF THAT JEFF CAPITELLI PASSED BY ME AND I COULDNT GET AN AUTOGRAPH FROM HIM. ATLEAST I WAS HAPPY THAT I GOT TO WATCH THE WHOLE SHOW SET UP. THIS IS THE INTRESTING PART. AT 14:10 SATCH ENTERED THE STAGE TO HAVE HIS JAM SESSION. MAN HE WAS LOOKIN GREAT WITH THAT CAP ON. I GOT THE OPPURTUNITY TO GET HIS AUTOGRAPH AND TO TAKE HIS SNAP ON MY CAM. I WAS HAPPY THAT I GOT TO SPEAK TO HIM. THE SHOW STARTED AT 19:00. 3 LONG HOURS OF PURE SATCH MUSIC. WHAT WAS HE DOIN WITH THE GUITAR. HE WAS LITERALLY PLAYING WITH HIS TEETH. 20 OR MORE?!!!! TRACK IN 3 HRS IS TOO MUCH AND I WAS ELECTRIFIED WITH THE KIND OF MUSIC THAT HE WAS PLAYING. ALL THE MORE THE FIVE GUITARS THAT HE TOOK OUT ESPEACIALLY THE SILVER CHROME WAS THE BEST. EVERY SONG THAT HE PLAYED, WAS PERFORMED WITH A FEELING WITHIN AND I COULD SENSE THAT CAUSE It WAS GOING THROUGH ME AND ALL OF US. I REALLY ENJOYED EVERY MOMENT THAT HE SPENT ON THE STAGE RIGHT FROM THE TIME HE CAME ON TO THE STAGE FOR HIS JAM SESSION TILL THE TIME HE LEFT THE STAGE. I AM HAPPY THAT THIS WORLD HAS THE BEST GUITARIST. SATCH WILL ALWAYS DO WELL IN HIS CAREER AS A GUITARIST RIGHT FROM THE AGE OF 14 WHEN HE FIRST STARTED.

SATCH IF YOU ARE READING THIS I BEG OF YOU ON BEHALF OF INDIA TO PLS COME BACK AGAIN WITH G3 LIVE. WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. YOU WERE, IS AND ALWAYS BE MY INSPIRATION, MY MENTOR, WHO TOOK ME ON THE ROAD IN TO THE WORLD OF THE GUITAR. EVERY MUSIC YOU PLAY, EVERY NOTE YOU STRIKE YOU GAVE ME A CHANCE TO LEARN MORE. I AM PROUD OF HAVING YOU AS MY MENTOR AND INSPIRATOR.

MY LAST NOTE TO YOU: SATCH NOT OF THIS EARTH WE ALL LIVE IN A CRYSTAL PLANET WE JUST SAW THE GOD OF GUITARS

…….and finally the dream comes true ….. saw the god play his guitar last night and he played for 3 hrs straight without a single break. It was truly the best experience of my life. When Joe started summer song the crowd in the 1000 bucks stands almost broke the metal barricades in an attempt to go right in the front row, before the cops came and handled the scene. Many of them got lucky and jumped over the barricades and managed to evade the security. It was an incredible show, still can’t get over the fact that I witnessed Joe live...….belting out his tracks one by one. Just wished that Joe had played mystical potato head and crushing day….maybe next time. No words would be enough to describe the god, he was incredible, totally out of this world. Jeff and Matt were awesome too. Thanx a million Joe!!! ….. ur the best…..ur the god!!….and thanx to everybody who made this show happen. Hope to see u Joe as soon as possible….dreaming of a G3 concert…please god.... make it happen !

can't speak much bout the gig....listenin to satch since 1998 ..i was 15 @ tht time....used to go on air and listen to RJ ATIN DAS GUPTA who once had this joe satriani special on a saturday or i suppose it was three continuous saturdays....and the era of soulful,melodic and orgasmic guitar melodies and solo's began for me...and everything unfolded yesterday when i saw the guy first enterin the stage fmr the left hand side and my gawdddd wht energy shook my body ......it was like some electric charge flowin inside and some sort of shiver ripped me apart and fer a second or two i felt i was bout to die coz of excess happiness.sounds gayish but was nearly in tears in the middle of "always with me always with u".....the thing which caused tht was revolving around the question that "why is satriani playing fer us"...."we don't deserve him"..."why was the guy thanking us"....i was expression less and neither i cud thank him...cudnt donate him my organs or something just to make him happy.

i wish there wud have been some blood donation camp set up inside the grnd....wud hae surely given him my blood as a token...or tears collected in a lil bowl.

me and two other frens of mine were under an attack or something close to fits during surfin,flying,summer,starry.....and we were literally roamin arnd dancin doin some crazy moves as if we were flowin arnd the space and jumpin frm one planet to nother.

cant explain more....can't think of anything...after comin back ....cudn't get sleep....fer half n hr i was lookin at a wall and thinkin bout the gig.... and i think it was not meant to happen.it shudnt have happened.i didnt deserve it.who am i?

am ratin it 10.....end of issue.

i have been listening to joe satriani for almost half of my life and was expecting the show for many years. now when the chance came i seized the opportunity and wentto the show. we had a ball of a time. We did everyting imaginable, like breaking the barricades and goin to the higher ticket area. the truth about the show was that as advertised by the newspapers " angels can keep their harps Gods play the guitar" itwas true as soon as satch started playin everybody was musically enlightened and realised how good a guitar player should be. it was mesmerising and god damn the guy didnt miss a note, picking away like how a god should. the greatest thing about joe was that after they finished the crowd started shouting we waant more music and the guy played 3 more songs that includes flying in a blue dream and friends. the show i would rate as 10 because ofr the intensity with which he played i dont think there would many people in the stadium or probably in the country who can stand in front of him with a guitar. AWESOME is an under statement. i hope he comes again next year

Now, I've been listening to Satch since i was 10... so this has been a long long wait for me... & it was worth more than every second & every penny. When Satch, Jeff & Matt walked on stage & just started jamming for a minute i was... i dunno... overjoyed mebbe... mebbe i couldn't beleive that my childhood dream of seeing & hearing my super-hero in the flesh (that too front-most row!) was finally coming true. Then Satch played the 1st few harmonics of "Up In The Sky" & I thought I was going to burst with utopia.

But one thing for sure I never dreamt that he would ever come to Bombay... I always thought that one day I would have to travel to the US to see him play live! It was unbeleivable... the only thing that i missed was... that i didn't catch a guitar-pick / a drumstick / didn't get an autograph or a chance to meet Joe & the Band.... But Joe did point at me (twice) as i mouthed the wah-wah notes before he played them... seen & heard a lot of Satch recorded-live-performances... so i do know a lot... hahaha!

Some of the songs were extended especially "Always With Me, Always With You" which transcended into a jam which I thought had partial elements of other pieces like "Ceremony", "Raspberry Jam Delta-v", "The Power Cosmic 2000 - Part 2" & also elements of Vai's "Bangkok"... not really sure of this... but it was similar (to my ears)! And I can easily say that till date, it was the best 3 hrs of my life!... yup they played for 3 hrs.

The setlist was as follows (might be a little mistake in the order of playing somewhere in the middle) - Up In The Sky, House Full Of Bullets, Cool #9, Up In Flames, Satch Boogie, Time, Lords Of Karma, Always With Me Always With You, Summer Song, Starry Night, Moroccan Sunset, Bamboo, Strange, Hordes Of Locusts, Searching, Hands In The Air, Is There Love In Space?, Psycho Monkey, War, Flying In a Blue Dream, Going Down, Surfing With The Alien, Friends
