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.
