G3 Live in Tokyo: This DVD features the trio of Joe Satriani Steve Vai and John Petrucci of Dream Theater performing live on May 8 2005 at the International Forum in Tokyo. Also included are show highlights behind-the-scenes at the soundcheck and bios. G3 a guitar supergroup that features top-tier shredders Steve Vai Joe Satriani and John Petrucci is a guitar-lovers dream come true. The bands usual high energy is cranked up even higher on this live Tokyo date and the amount of heavy riffing and blistering leads throughout the set is mightily ferocious. Petrucci who rose to prominence in the progressive metal band Dream Theater distinguishes himself here and proves that his six-string skills are on par with revered axe-slinging of Vai and Satriani. In addition to some extended jams there are covers of classic guitar-defining rock songs (Deep Purples Smoke On the Water and Jimi Hendrixs Foxey Lady among them) that add a dash of fun to the jaw-dropping pyrotechnics on offer.
