Generation Axe will make a stop in Seoul
Originally conceived by legendary guitarist Steve Vai last April, he is joined by neoclassical guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen; former Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde; lead guitarist Nuno Bettencourt of British rock band Extreme; and the progressive metal guitarist Tosin Abasi of Animals as Leaders.
“The Generation Axe show is a unique performance of five fiercely talented guitar players coming together to create a 6-string extravaganza that is sure to amaze and delight,” commented Steve Vai on his official website.
“Generation Axe has been unable to tour until now due to the busy schedules of the guitarists,” said concert planner AIM. “Anyone calling themselves a rock maniac will be unable to miss this upcoming performance.” Tickets for the show will go on sale on Feb. 14 at noon on Interpark. Prices range from 110,000 ($97) to 132,000 won.
