Legendary shredder MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO will embark in a three-day string of exclusive shows of his multimedia extravaganza featuring the music of some of the greatest rock guitarists of the past 50 years. Batio will also be giving away an autographed MAB 3 guitar the night of the Mississippi Moon Bar performance sponsored by Eagle 102 KXGE. Details will be available soon.
Batio takes you on his 90 minute aural/visual journey to the different eras of rock music while playing guitars with incredible speed and musical precision. The Hands Without Shadows – A Tribute To Rock Guitar show entails an awesome display of guitar wizardry accompanied by an equally talented band. This chronological tribute features Batio’s incredible arrangements and medley’s from the different eras of rock beginning with JIMI HENDRIX and ERIC CLAPTON, then moving on to LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN, METALLICA and more.
The brilliant, fast paced multimedia experience is completed with multiple video screens, incredible lighting, on stage theatrics and of course the amazing guitar work of the "#1 Shredder of all time" (Guitar One Magazine), Michael Angelo Batio. You will be introduced to Batio’s MAB Over – Under neck technique along with his famous Double Guitar. Michael’s Dean "Jet" Double Guitar was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum in February 2012.
