This is the 6th time I seen Joe. Five times solo and once with G3 back in 2007. Joe is the best guitarist in the world in my book. I met him back in 2006 (VIP package), but got to meet him for nothing outside the bus at the Keswick. He is so down to earth and such a nice guy. He says he remembered me from the conversation we had back in 2006 about our roots being from Italy. I wrote about him in Italian language class the night after the show and told him I was going to write about him!!! I sure hope he meant it when he said he did remember me and wasn't just being nice. Oh, btw Joe, I got an 88 on my test!

Anyway, I wanted to stand, but I seen no one else standing and was worried about the people behind me. I was in the 10th row, so I thought it best to sit, but I was dancing in my seat! I cannot see Joe far away anymore. I need to be right up there watching those magic fingers do their thing! Hey does anyone know the setlist from that night? Thanks in advance.

SATCH, I LOVE YOU!!!

Joe was great and was as usual right on, regarding mountain I wasn't to crazy about it, Leslie West seemed to be recovering from an eternal hangover and as he was playing reminded me of John Mcain. I couldn't make 80% of the lirics and sounded like he was singing inside bucket. I hate to say this but the contrast between Joe and Mountain was too great and Mountain should be focusing in more on bingo nights and farm market tipe of gig. Great show on Satriani's part and I will definetely be there for upcoming show including G3 which I am already looking forward to.

Joe was great but i hate the keswick! What's with the sitting down for the whole show but the encore? Its a rock concert not the opera! Joe and the band are up there giving us a great show and everyone is sitting on their ass like they are bored out of their minds.

Once again Satch was spot on. This is my 4th time seeing Joe live, 3 times solo & once with the G3. I'm very happy he brought back Stu Hamm. Galen and Jeff were excellent as usual. The lighting and video effects were a nice touch. I understand that the new album will always get a lot of play, which is fine. The rest of the setlist is almost identical to the super colossal tour. Please switch up the rest of the setlist in the future.

What made my night was Mountain. I'm a huge Mountain fan, but never saw them live. Granted Felix wasn't there on bass, but the MSG bassist filled in just fine. Leslie looked a bit old and complained about not finding a cheesesteak, but still plays a mean and loud guitar. They played all old stuff which was nice, including "Why Dontcha" from the West, Bruce & Laing days. Next time don't tease "Long Red", play the entire song. Speaking of Corky Laing, he still has his patented break the drumstick on the ride cymbal thing going on. He easily went through 50 drumsticks that night.

As I hoped, Leslie did come out and jam for about 20 minutes with Satch. My only question, why did so many people leave before the show ended? The bluesy "Stormy Monday" jam kicked ass and "Going Down" was awesome. The show was over by 10:20pm and I still had an hour drive home and had to be up for work by 5am. These were not people with small kids leaving, these were adults who looked like they belonged at a Madonna concert.

The only reason the show gets a 9 is because of the lame crowd. There seemed to be too many "psuedo Satch fans" at the show. The ones rocking the most were the ones that were 60 and older.

Thanks again Joe for a great performance and for bringing the "Great Fatsby" along for the ride. I'll be there next time around.

Great show as always, band firing on all cylinders, loved the setlist, good mix of some classics and songs from the new album. Awesome stage design/light show thing that lit up the entire stage behind the band like it was a music video or something. Very cool effect with that thing lighting up as Joe's image during - I 4get exactly what song but I'm gonna guess SUPERCOLOSSAL. Those lights also cast a wierd huge Campitelli shadow off the wall on one side of the theater that kinda surreal. I was up front and noticed a lot of kids at this concert, I'm talking ones between 5-10 years old, guess Satch fans are starting to bring their brood to shows, which is pretty cool, and some of the kids were even into it, but i felt sorry for the little kid who had his ears covered with large headphones (probably worthless for sound protection), who kept covering his ears with his hands on top of the headphones, who eventually FELL DEAD ASLEEP for like the entire last half of the concert - I think Daddy made a mistake on that one. Hope he isn't turned off to Joe for life! Thanks to Joe for bringing Leslie West back onstage to jam, STORMY MONDAY was great, but for the love of God why do you still play GOIN' DOWN during these jam things? 3 words - WORST SONG EVER. If I never hear it again it will be too soon.
