Watch: Guitar Legends Unite For Generation Axe


Generation Axe is the 6-string extravaganze that counts some of rock’s most legendary names amongst its entourage. Steve Vai, Tosin Abasi, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde and Nuno Bettencourt are all present, displaying their incendiary talents on these videos.


Filmed at Vancouver’s BC’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the first show of the troupe’s tour included Vai and Malmsteen’s thrilling neoclassical jam, Abasi and Bettencourt shredding through an Animals As Leaders cover and a chilling ballad from Wylde with the help of Bettencourt.
