Yeah, Docklands can be a dive but there should be a bar or something at the show.

Not sure if I am going to the masterclass, but I am definately going to the show, and would be up for beers as well...

UPDATE:

The organisers told me that tickets will not be dispatched until early January and if you paid by card (like I did) it won't be debited until the tickets are ready to be posted.

Will post more when I know more

Well, they don't sound too organised do they? They need a kick up the jacksie, and someone else should call and clarify. I will wait till January before asking more pressing questions...

Re: Steve Vai at London guitar show 2007

My ticket came today

Funny,coz i was on my home from work and was sitting in traffic behind a bus that had an advert for th London Motor Show at the Excel centre, and i thought "wonder when my ticket will come, better ring 'em soon"!! And when i walked in there was an envelope on the side with "London Guitar Show" all over it

Cool Re: Steve Vai at London guitar show 2007

I'm going too, glad someone mentioned about not being allowed to take guitars i'd come to the conclusion of taking my backplate as well as didn't fancy lugging it around london.

Bit nervous about seeing the man in person though, i've only seen him once while doing Zappa plays Zappa, he was great.

Re: Steve Vai at London guitar show 2007

I bought my ticket a couple of days ago, for the saturday class. It's gonna cost me an extra plane ticket and hotel, but I don't care.

Re: Steve Vai at London guitar show 2007

I attended a Masterclass with Joe Satriani over the summer.
Hopefully you UK guys will have a similar experience with Steve!

He covered a wide subject matter for a few hours and then opened it up for questions- you actually had to approach the stage to ask one in front of everyone. (I'm a ham, so of course I did it)
Absolutely AWESOME from a 'mental-framework' point of view.

After the 'meet-and-greet' segment of the day I was fortunate enough to arrange a few minutes with Joe - Super Colossal had just come out and I had some structure questions regarding the song "A Cool New Way" that we discussed. He's a very decent man.

Be a sponge - you'll never regret going to a Masterclass!!!

Re: Steve Vai at London guitar show 2007

I heard Steve will not be signing jack until the Sunday...which means that if there are tickets left I will go Sunday too - bring a cd cover or something.
