Last night it was G3 at the Brisbane Convention Centre. Promoter photography rules get ever worse – turn up at 10:15pm and you can shoot the finale when all three of the guitarists – Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John Petrucci – are on stage.

The gig was running late so more like 10:45pm when we get into the auditorium.  Tour manager tells that the original plan was to let us shoot the first song of each of the three guitarists but that it was too much hassle for them so instead we’ll have 10 minutes when they’re all on stage…  Was more like about 5 minutes before a beefy security guard tells us to move and escorts us to the side of the stage.

However, the tour manager was supposed to escort us from the premises but is nowhere to be seen.  So we get to spend the rest of the gig, probably about 40 minutes, watching from the side of the stage.  Sweet.

A few photos below and the rest here.
