Inspired arrangements and medleys span Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton to Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, and Metallica, all displaying Batio's trademark speed and precision on both right- and left-handed guitars as well as his famed Dean double-neck instrument.
Performing with Michael will be Dean Guitars CEO Elliott "Dean" Rubinson on bass, Steve Hott on vocals and Joe Babiak on drums (click here to read a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame interview with Michael about his guitar, background, and education).
