The first one was an instrumental cover.  The rest had vocals.  Very blues-based "jammy" kind of tunes.

Interesting, I thought the individual sets were always all instrumental.

I thought the same thing too although I had never been to a G3 show, just have seen one of their DVDs that had JP, Vai, and Satch.  I'd considering going to one of the two shows by me, but I'll be in Denver for one and the other I am going to a different concert that evening.

I went to the G3 when robert Fripp played and I arrived late to find what I thought was a roadie tuning the guitar, fiddling with some equipment. Ten minutes later when people started clapping I realised that was Fripp and that was the first song 😀

When I saw G3 in 2007 Paul Gilbert played many songs with vocals.

I saw G3 on the same tour and I was surprised to hear so many vocals from Gilbert.

While I like a lot of what Fripp does, I can totally see that happening.  :lol

I'm still debating whether or not to see them in Toronto next month. I've seen two G3's: Satch/Eric Johnson/Petrucci (John had MP in his band, and he completely stole the show!) and Satch/Steve Morse/Petrucci.

I should have seen them a third time, with Satch/Fripp/Vai, but got stuck at work on the day of the concert.

I might only stick around for Collen's and JP's set. Satch's songs and setlists have been very boring lately.

I hear you, but the jam is really fun.  I thought they picked really cool song choices.

Ugh, I just about feel asleep every time Fripp opened for Porcupine Tree back in the day. Absolutely brutal.
