Generation Axe are an American rock / heavy metal supergroup formed by Steve Vai in 2016. They toured North America in April and May 2016, and Asia in April 2017. In July 2018 they announced an additional North American tour to take place in November and December 2018.
The supergroup includes, besides Vai himself, legendary guitarists Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society/ Ozzy Osbourne), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme) and Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders).
This line up is for surely the crème de la crème of legendary metal and rock guitarist and above any similar project ever existing!
The Generation Axe experience goes way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. According to Steve Vai, “The idea was to create a seamless show with one backing band and 5 completely accomplished and astonishing guitarists that take to the stage in various configurations, performing some of their solo music and merging together as cohesive co-creators of lushly orchestrated guitar extravaganzas."
"Generation Axe – The Guitars that Destroyed the World (Live in China)" comprises various performances on their last very successful tour of Asia.
