G3 Live In Tokyo is a live album by American guitar trio Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John Petrucci released in October 2005 via Epic Records.

Throughout its nearly decade-long run, the G3 series of tours has always featured guitar wizards Joe Satriani and Steve Vai at the helm, with a mystery third guest always in the rotation to contrast against the mentor-and-student duo. Sometimes the results are complementary (Eric Johnson), and other times they're mildy theatrical and amusing (Yngwie Malmsteen).

This time around the special guest star, Dream Theater's John Petrucci, finds himself in the middle of Tokyo and starting off the two-disc session. His "Glasgow Kiss" and "Damage Control" are both presented with great skill and technical precision.

Vai also delivers a solid performance with a rousing rendition of his most well-known solo outing "The Audience Is Listening". "K'M-Pee-Du-Wee" is extended and has never sounded better, especially as Vai stretches out and delivers more of an improvisational element to the more atmospheric parts of the song.

Finally, Satriani takes the stage and presents three extremely eclectic selections from his catalogue, culminating in the intensity of his anthem "War" off of his 1992 epic The Extremist.

The session ends with a three-song cover jam led mainly by Satriani that features ZZ Top's "La Grange", Hendrix's "Foxey Lady" and Deep Purple's "Smoke On The Water".

Guitar fanatics the world over will love this album.
