After Ho Chi Minh City, he will perform in Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.

Over the past two years, Vai has released a new album called ‘Inviolate’ and a record called Vai/Gash that he has kept in his archives for three decades.  

Vai, 63, is an American guitarist, songwriter, and producer. He has been nominated for Grammy Awards 15 times and has won the honour three times.

The artist started his music career in 1978, embarked on a solo career in 1983, and has released eight solo albums to date.

His most successful release, Passion and Warfare (1990), was described as ‘the richest and best hard rock guitar-virtuoso album of the ’80s’. He was voted the 10th Greatest Guitarist by Guitar World magazine, and has sold over 15 million records.
