Wearing his trademark rectangular sunglasses with colored lenses, Steve Vai stands at center stage, six-stringed Ibanez in hand. He fingerpicks his ax, then taps a pedal that transforms its natural sound into a spacey wail akin to a theremin. Light bends during the solo. His emotional intensity waxes and wanes.
In concert, Vai appeases serious fans with more than 20 gems from his eight-album catalog, whether it be the synth-heavy “Whispering a Prayer” or “Velorum,” a metal ballad packed with hypnotic harmonies from his latest release, The Story of Light. In addition to his standard set, he often puts an audience member on the spot, asking them to write an original tune and recite the alphabet backwards during a segment called Build Me a Song.
