Steve Vai Hands His Guitar to Andy Timmons During Dallas Show

Image placeholder title

This past Sunday night, guitar legend Steve Vai brought his Passion and Warfare Tour to the Bomb Factory in Dallas.

Lo and behold, who happened to be in the audience but guitarist extraordinaire Andy Timmons. Timmons—who has recorded several albums on Vai's independent Favored Nations label—was merely in the crowd as a fan.

In the clip, which you can stream below, as Vai plays the final part of his "Fire Garden Suite" from 1996's Fire Garden, he makes his way to the front row, takes off his beloved Ibanez JEM guitar and hands it to Timmons—who picks up right where Vai leaves off.

And the crowd—who you can see incredibly well in this incredible video—goes wild, as does Vai.

After shredding for more than a minute, Timmons hands the ax back to Vai at the 1:11 mark. It's a nice moment that's worth checking out.
