Guitar legend Steve Vai has checked in with the following message for the fans:
"Every now and then, perhaps I would even say once in a blue moon (and a blue moon is very rare), I come across a guitar talent that is truly stimulating to me. This young Italian guy Daniele Gottardo is one of those people. His technique is stunning but his choice of notes and the harmonic/melodic atmospheres he creates have unique qualities to them. For me his music has a way to scratch an itch that’s very hard to reach."

Vai recently issued the following update:
"Yes!! It's Android time!! The Vai 360° App is now available on Android through the the Google Play store! Visit this location
to download Vai 360° for both Android and iOS."
The app features a 360° interactive multi-camera experience of Vai's performance at The Hammersmith Apollo Theater as well as a 360° tour of his personal studio, the Harmony Hut - all guided and narrated by Vai himself.
Each user can direct the show by manipulating Mativision’s multi-camera iOS player, seamlessly choosing to watch from among six different cameras. Users are able to rotate camera angles, use the device’s built-in gyroscope or simply switch to "auto pilot" choosing to enjoy the show without interaction. Users may also virtually tour Vai’s studio, Harmony Hut, using the same technology as during the concert, guided by Vai himself.
Along with the cutting-edge interactive content, the Vai360° App also includes continually updated photos of Vai’s guitars, picks and equipment news as well as current information about Vai such as a biography, discography, photos and tour information.
Mativision plans to deliver frequent updates to the app, providing additional exclusive content. The Vai360° App is available on the iOS AppStore now at this location
