Guitar Heaven: G3 ft. Satriani, Vai & Lukather Coming to Newcastle

G3 2012 coming to Newcastle

Satriani, Vai & Lukather - Newcastle, are you ready?

Guitarists get ready, some almighty guitar gods are coming to Newcastle this March for one night only!

If guitar licks & face-melting solos from Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Steve Lukathur make your knees weak, your hands tremble and your jaw hit the floor (and you’ve got their posters on your wall too, I bet!), don’t miss this chance to see these three legends take to the stage, and go head to head in an all-star jam session.

Their guitar mastery, pyrotechnics, showmanship & musical daring are sure to have you on the edge of your seat. Air guitars at the ready!

The G3 series of concerts was founded by Joe Satriani in 1996 and over the years has featured many celebrated guitarists including Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Yngwie Malmsteen & Eric Johnson. This year’s line up threatens to overshadow them all! Satriani is widely regarded as one of the most technically accomplished guitar players in the history of rock, Vai cut his teeth with Zappa, David Lee Roth & Whitesnake and has sold 15 million albums worldwide and Lukather has five Grammy’s under his belt, has played with everyone from MJ to Miles Davis and founded the legendary Toto.

The gig is at Panthers, is all ages and with fully reserved seating. Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday, 29 February.  Pre-sale is available from midday on Monday, 27 February until 5pm on Tuesday, 28 February. Grab them here. If you want to take it to the next level, Moshtix will also have VIP packages available.

Helen Henry grew up in Newcastle, and in 2010 graduated with a Bachelor of Communication from the local University. This was pleasing because it made her officially qualified to communicate about the things she likes most: music and the music industry, photography, digital, cute animals and her friends & family. Most recently, Helen worked as a Digital Projects Assistant at Sticky Advertising and was Editor of Urban Insider. She has recently landed a pretty sweet gig working in the music industry in Sydney.

Hi guys,

Thanks so much Angie - a pretty amazing gig for Newcastle!

Cale, I suspect that there’s no info on the Moshtix site because the pre-sale isn’t until Monday… seems a bit odd though… I’ll try and find out more & comment here with more info 🙂
