Obviously accompanied by a team of weight Achilles Priestes counting on drums, Fabio Laguna on keyboards, Ladislaus Bruno on bass and Gustavo Carmo on guitar, we could expect the best of the best shows of this genre.

No delays, the Teatro Municipal was already almost full when Daniel Pique started his presentation around 20:00 with a repertoire of own authorship and fully instrumental, played songs like "1960" among others, after all with a short presentation, which lasted some 25 minutes already started to heat up and prepare fans for what was to come.

After an interval of 40 minutes and with a slight delay, Vinnie Moore and his team entered the stage. The musician who has also been part of the band Alice Cooper and now part of the leading bands in the rock scene worldwide, UFO, had its recognition in the 80s after shooting a commercial for Pepsi soda.

The start was had with "Check It Out", one of the classics of the legendary guitarist now showing all their resourcefulness. Among the first songs played, we also had a great accent for "The Maze" which noted the excitement of many fans, because this song has been covered by Achilles in 2008. Herein was clear the vibration coming from the stage to all points of the site, after a show like this requires a lot of interaction between everyone and it had left.

Another time admirers of virtuosity had been in "Midgnight Rain", where cries and balance become single heads. The mood of Vinnie Moore and his charisma were truly remarkable especially when he addressed Achilles, who is already known him a long time.

But one of the climaxes of the show was " While My Guitar Gently Weeps ", a classic Beatles band that was run as nobody and fans and connoisseurs of this feat does not let this moment pass unnoticed.

After "Time Traveller", Aquiles Priester held a long solo showing all his technical and resourcefulness. Thus, continued with "Thunderball" that Vinnie Moore has done some interviews about what you think about this composition and said that this song was inspired by none other than Jimi Hendrix.

At the end of "Daydream" another classic song and the first album of solo this guitar titled "Mind's Eye" 1987, all members withdrew from the stage to give that time the famous and known bis; clear that the public did not leave by less and asked for the return of all.

At this time, walking to the end of this beautiful presentation, the fans clapped and cheered Vinnie Moore and band, there Vinnie approached the audience and began distributing their picks for everyone.

In bis had to run 'Meltdown' which was perfect, and then a cover of " Maybe I'm a Leo "the classic Deep Purple Cover Band in the voice of Fabio Laguna that really left everyone dumbfounded. Finally, we had a presentation, or better, a gift for lovers of guitar and a show of skill and competence of these excellent musicians.

With the end of the presentation, the producer took the stage and told the audience that Vinnie Moore and band were performing a single session and exclusive photos and autographs. With a lot of organization fans headed to the funds of the Municipal Theatre and waited anxious for virtuoso guitarist Vinnie Moore appeared so cheers and applause were distributed as thanks. Vinnie Moore and the musicians of the band met all with great sympathy not leaving anyone behind, actually this was a unique demonstration of humility and a unique essence. However, a great time that is already stored in the memory of all.

A brief pause, and there was the introduction of guitars recorded the beautiful and virtuous "The Maze", the track that gives name to the disc 1999, it was the music that increased intereção of gifts with the band, because until then, everyone watched carefully the precise notes, this song is more familiar to have been rewritten by Achilles in 2008 in tribute to that great guitarist. With excellent arrangements rhythmic Latin, "a certain weight," a catchy melody, beautiful bass solos, keyboard and guitar, is certainly one of the highlights of the show.

Then came "Rain", "Midnight Rain", "With theflow" and a cover of The Beatles written by Moore in 1988 on the album "The Odyssey," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with very interesting arrangements that give the feeling of the guitar "talk" anytime.

Moore, as the presentation of the UFO proved very comfortable, talked and interacted with the public at various times and with bandmates mostly. Joked a lot with Achilles and after "Saved By A Miracle" and "Time Traveller", presented the great drummer emphasizing the qualities that made him world famous, such as precision and the bass drums "paradidles" distributed to the dishes, which yielded the endearment octopus, and of course followed another moment eagerly awaited by fans, soil Achilles.

The band leaves the stage and in the sequence as usual, the public cried for doubles and was promptly answered.

After performing with the English band UFO at Carioca Club in São Paulo, the U.S. guitarist Vinnie Moore performed a solo tour in the country beyond the capital city included the cities of Florianópolis (SC), and Trough Santos (SP). The musician was joined by a team of weight formed by Brazilians as Aquiles Priester (drums, Hangar, Freakeys, ex-Angra), Bruno Ladislaus (bass, Andre Matos), Gustavo Carmo (guitars, Vers'Over and House of Bones) and Fabio Laguna (keyboards, Hangar and Freakeys).

The presentation was the opening of the Brazilian guitarist Daniel Pique, which launched in recent years the excellent hard Boo!. The musician played some tracks of this work and talked to the audience about his compositions. Daniel noted that the album had the participation of Mike Mangini (drums, Dream Theater), Billy Sheehan (bass, Mr. Big and The Winery Dogs) and keyboardist Brazilian Fabio Laguna. Respected the Brazilian fans and applauded throughout the show.

Just over twenty minutes after the show Daniel, Vinnie Moore and band came on stage so contained, perhaps because of the genre attract an audience that watches over the musicians and their instruments that are shaking while performing the songs and the show . Right away, the guitarist showed the excellent compositions "Check It Out!" and "Ridin 'High," both of "Meltdown", 1991, but the training that touched these bands managed to excel and versions were very nice. Detail the sound of the house was clean and you could hear every note of the instruments.

"The Maze" was one of the most animated the audience, mainly because of the drummer Aquiles Priester, who played perfectly all the music, just as it did in a tribute to Vinnie Moore on Youtube. One interesting thing is that despite the short time playing together, the band and guitarist were mingled and it was very clear in "With the Flow" and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (The Beatles).

Another highlight was the "Saved by a Miracle" which, besides being very technical and heavy, brought an excellent drum solo Aquiles Priester in the middle of the song - the album "Mind's Eye" who did this solo was Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake , Ozzy Osbourne, Black Oak Arkansas). Achilles not only touched the subject properly incorporated as its own soil in the show that made everyone was flabbergasted.

Vinnie Moore closed the first part of the set with Time Traveler, Thunderball and Daydream tracks which again showed his quality as a musician. After a brief interval, the guitarist returned to the stage supplies humorous and joked with Aquiles Priester not returned to the dressing room during the encore. The band then played the classic Meltdown and an excellent version of Maybe I'm a Leo (Deep Purple), which according to Vinnie Moore is your favorite guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore. The keyboardist Fabio Laguna sang the track and showed resourcefulness in position, and play with the U.S. during solos and intricate passages.

The only weak point was the little audience, something unusual in international shows in Manifesto Bar but, perhaps because of the number of events on the same day, Morbid Angel and Yes, apart from the competition with major events in the coming months, fans have preferred to stay at home. But who was he saw the talent of Brazilian musicians, and, of course, Vinnie Moore, who needs no introduction.

Ridin 'High
The Maze
Midnight Rain
With the Flow
While My Guitar Gently Weeps (The Beatles)
