The “EVO Premium Experience” is an exclusive and very special opportunity we are offering to our loyal Vai.com visitors. The “EVO Premium Experience” was a huge success on  all the previous  tours and garnered countless rave reviews from fans. Now we are bringing EVO back for 2023! The package allows you the exciting opportunity to see Steve and the band prepare for a show; along with the ability to ask Steve questions in an intimate group discussion. Availability is VERY limited for each show – so be aware that they will sell quickly once we put them on sale.

For more information and tickets, be sure to check out our tourdates page!

Please note that you can not order EVO packages if the concert date is close than 7 days as 237global needs time to collect all the client data. If you still want an EVO upgrade and these are no longer available through regular ticket sales, please contact info@237global.com.

If you want to buy an EVO upgrade on the show day, be at the venue by 3 pm and contact the tour representative or box office. Please note that there’s a risk EVOs may be sold out. Payments on the show day will only be accepted via credit card or cash.

Q, can I film the EVO or soundcheck?

NO. It’s not allowed to take video or photos during EVO or Soundcheck. You may be removed if you take video or pictures.

Q. Can Steve autograph my guitar, CD etc etc?

Due to the amount of people attending EVO, we cannot guarantee autographs of your personal items. However, Steve will sign your guitar, or attached parts such as backplates or pickguards.

Please note that you are responsible for the guitars you bring to the venue.  Some venues may not let you bring in or have the ability to safely store large items such as guitars, so check with the venue first!

Q. Does the EVO Premium Experience package allow me access to the meet and greet after the show?


Q. I’ve had my photo taken with Steve during the EVO by the EVO people. Where can I find it?

You will receive a notification via Email.

Please note that pictures will take a few days in order to process.

Q. Can I give Steve a copy of my demo CD?

No. While Steve is very supporting of upcoming artists, he cannot accept your demo CDs while he is on tour. It is too much for him to carry on the road, as by the end of most tours he ends up with hundreds of them. Keep them at home as they will only be lost or forgotten on the road.

Q. Can I give Steve a gift?

Many fans like to present Steve with gifts while he is on tour. While Steve is honored and flattered, carrying gifts on tour can become a major problem, and can lead to a lot of extra baggage by the time the tour is over. So that we don’t become overloaded on the road, we would prefer if you did not bring gifts.

Q. I have another question not mentioned here!
