Eric Johnson has announced that he will perform his 1990 album, Ah Via Musicom, in its entirety during his extensive American tour next year.

Huzzah! Best news I've heard in a while. Pretty extensive dates, too (for EJ standards).

Thanks for the heads up! Tickets for the Atlanta show go on sale this morning. I saw the original Ah Via Musicom tour, in fact I first saw Eric at a club in Dallas in 1982.
Always a great show!

Edit: Scored 7th row floor seats! I'll be there!

Sweet!

First time I caught EJ was on the original G3 show in Auburn Hills, MI (Halloween 1996), and was just floored. I spent the following 20 years in Austin, so I was able to catch lots of shows... they're always fantastic. (The Alien Love Child lineup was especially good, sheesh.)

Very cool, welcome aboard! I attended in '91, when the frequent blocks of Megadeth covers during LPWs elicited many a vile phrase from Tim Bogert. Good times.

Looking forward to Arielle and EJ fur sure!

Ha yeah for some reason Megadeth is VERY tied into that school. The first big solo I ever ripped was "Tornado of Souls" and Nick Menza was there playing drums with us. But yeah Chris Broderick was a teacher there, Jeff Young currently is a teacher there, Chris Poland came and hung out, Kiko came and played for us, so did Marty.

Well, I guess I took a few pics. :oops:

Image gallery



Really fantastic performances all around. (I've seen EJ quite a bit, this one was a cut above.)

Arielle was a delight, really amazing talent, very warm & funny. She and Eric had great chemistry together. Eric was in marvelous form, Kyle & Tommy were rock solid and wonderful. (Tommy, especially, looked like he was having the time of his life. Really killed it behind the kit, whew!)

A couple of short clips:



Can't recommend this one enough if you have the chance.

Operation: Camp The Website was a complete success. :D

They were about ideal... I think that's how I ended up with so many pics, I'd probably never get another chance. Great hall too, it was hard to go wrong.
