Steve Vai, one of the world’s most acclaimed guitar heroes, is returning to Israel for his first full-fledged band show here.

Vai, who captivated a sold-out audience in Tel Aviv in 2009 with a one-man guitar workshop/lecture/jam session, made a vow at the end of the evening that because he had enjoyed himself so much in Israel, that he’d be returning with his band.

The promise will be actualized on March 26 at The Tel Aviv Opera House, when Vai’s lightning-fast guitar work will be on display once again.

Whether performing with Frank Zappa, Whitesnake, David Lee Roth, or since 1984, releasing a series of increasingly complex and challenging solo albums that expand the boundaries of the definition of rock guitarist, the Berklee School of Music graduate has been influencing generations of guitar players, including latter day speed guitarists like James “Munky” Shaffer of Korn, Mike Eizinger of Incubus and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine.
