Vai, Yngwie, Zakk, Nuno and Tosin Play Deep Purple's "Highway Star"

Vai, Yngwie, Zakk, Nuno and Tosin Play Deep Purple's

As reported yesterday, the Generation Axe tour—featuring Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi—kicked off April 5 in Seattle.

Last night, the tour—which puts five former and/or current Guitar World cover stars at the same venue at the same time—made its way to Vancouver, BC's Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Below, you can check out a highlight from that show; it's a spirited performance of Deep Purple's "Highway Star" by all five guitarists, each of whom plays a solo.

The Gen Axe gang will take tonight off but will be ready to rock Oakland April 8; you can check out all the remaining dates below.
