Joe Satriani fans lined the streets as we arrived, ready to shoot the show and enjoy some loud, rocking music! There were people with Joe shirts, hats, and more all ready to get in the doors and see their idol! Doors opened around 7 ish and by the time we picked up our photo passes, the place was starting to fill up!
We got to our seats and made our plan. Seeing that there was no barricade for photographers was a blessing and a curse. We knew we wouldn’t have a 3 song limit, but we also knew it was going to be hard to fight our way through this crowd. These were die hard fans!
The opening band took the stage and got the crowd ready. They were loud, full of energy and at times, funny. I enjoyed them. Check out the opening band Ned Evett & Triple Double:[nggallery id=114]
Joe Satriani proudly told me when we talked two weeks ago that he was 54 years old. I honestly couldn’t see it or hear it for that matter. He is a legend for a reason. He sells out shows for a reason. If you missed this concert, I have one piece of advice for you…. Don’t miss the next one!
His set list for the night was:
- Ice 9
- Hordes of Locusts
- Flying in a Blue Dream
- Light Years Away
- Satch Boogie
- Pyrrhic Victoria
- Crystal Planet
- The Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing
- Dream Song
- God Is Crying
- Littleworth Lane
- Wind in the Trees
- Always With Me, Always With You
- Big Bad Moon
