The Tour Chronology: 1997

Note: for the better part of 1996 and 1997 Mike was a member of the Steve Vai Band, and as such toured the world. On some occasions Mike was invited to join Robert Fripp who was opening for the G3 bands playing his Soundscapes. Any additional info/dates can be send to me, thanks.
