G3
« on: December 29, 2017, 12:19:24 PM »
There isn't a thread on this, and I'm not sure where I saw it posted when it was announced a few months ago.  Anyway, for those who might have missed it, the lineup this year is Joe Satriani (of course), John Petrucci, Phil Collen (European leg has Uli Jon Roth in place of Phil).  U.S. let kicks off in Seattle January 11.  http://www.satriani.com/G3/

Anyone going?  I will likely be at the 1/13 show.

My sister bought her husband tickets to the Seattle show. There was talk of me going but it isn't really my thing and my sister kind wanted to go too - she got him two tickets and wasn't clear that the intention was for the two of them to go, not for him to take a buddy.

They are performing on Valentine's Day in DC, and before I got a chance to ask JP if he could change the date  ;) when I met him before the Balto show, he had to leave.

Philly is a possibility the following Saturday, unless I feel like driving up to Battle Creek MI that night instead  :lol

???  You don't want to spend Valentine's Day with John Petrucci?  Does not compute...  (although I can see how some might lean more toward wanting to spend it with shirtless, oiled up Phil Collen instead)

I should see if I can still get tickets to the Reno show. It's not often there is a show near me that I want to see.

Thinking about tickets for the Pittsburgh show, pretty pricey though, looks like more than what I paid to see DT in the same venue a couple months ago.

So, enlighten me a bit.  How does these G3 tours work?  Is it mainly them doing covers of their most respective work?  Is there a backing band handpicked by Satriani?  Do these guitarists play together and do some other covers and improvisation and jams?

Each guitarist gets a set with a backing band (each guitar player brings their own backing band). Typically, the guitarists that play these tours have original instrumental music of their own to play. Not sure if Phil does or not. But JP will play stuff from SA and a couple new solo songs heís written, and JS has a huge catalog of stuff to pick from.

So each player does their own set with their own backing band, and then the encore is all three guitarists coming out together and jamming on a couple popular cover songs, with the backing musicians cycling in and out. They do stuff everyone knows, like Hendrix, Deep Purple, etc...

^Yeah, that.  And for the encores, they extend the solo and basically turn them into huge extended solo jams where all three guitarists trade off and go crazy.  For example:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj9zdyqs1-0

Pretty awesome event to go to, I think. Tickets are hugely expensive though, so I'm not entirely sure whether to go or not.

I'm going to the January 16th show. I was going to skip it at first because Phil Collin doesn't really capture my imagination but I can't pass up Satch and JP. Besides, Mrs. P really wants to go (probably to watch me geek out).

As the day gets closer, I'm actually wondering what Collin has up his sleeve, considering the company he'll be with. It could be interesting.

I was all set to buy tickets for Wallingford CT on 2/8 but that changed when Marillion decided to come to the states and the closest show to Connecticut was Pittsburgh. So I opted to buy tickets for that instead and make it an overnight road trip.

Still...it could wind up being a game time decision to still go to G3 in CT.

I got tickets for the Austin show. Not sure if Iím going to dtay for the full Collen and Satch sets. Will probably see the Satch seist before deciding.

This would be my 2nd time seeing G3 with JP. I first saw him in 2001 in Denver. I was a college student back then and drove 12 hours from El Paso, TX to Denver and drove back after the show straight to work. I probably took 5 yrs out of my life in doing that.

Christmas present from the Mrs was a G3 ticket for Manchester. My first chance to see uli Roth.

Not seen satch for a while and this Petrucci bloke is meant to be pretty good. Hoping for some new stuff from him too.

Not sure if this means anything, but when it came up at our family Christmas, only my sister, her husband, and I knew who any of these guys are. But my 70 year old mom wanted to make it very clear she knew who Def Leppard was and was surprised my dad didn't. In fairness to my mom, they were my favorite band in the late 80s.

I think Phil Collen is an interesting addition. He has a bluesy project called Delta Deep. Not something you'd expect from him.

Interesting G3 lineup.

I've gone to a G3 show years ago with the lineup of Satriani - Petrucci - Gilbert. It was a great show but I left around the 3 hour mark into Satriani's set. It was just too much weedly weedly for my ears. :lol

I'd go again only if Guthrie Govan ended up on the bill.

Maybe they're banking on people who think Phil Collins will be there...

Hope JP adds at least another new song to his set and doesn't end up playing the same songs as in 2012.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

So...tour starts tomorrow.  Been listening to Suspended Animation to get ready.  I had forgotten how good some of those songs are.  It reminds me of a good mix of LTE and Satch, which isn't a bad thing.  I just don't listen to guitar-based instrumental music all that much or I would listen more.

Bosk, if you get to talk to JP at the show you're going, would you mind asking him if he plans to finally record his 2nd solo album this year? I really like the 3 new songs he played in 2012, but all we have are bad quality audience recordings on youtube.
