Vai has announced a premier screening of his concert film, "Live In Minneapolis - Where The Wild Things Are", at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California on September 15. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to view the concert film in its entirety and also listen to Vai and his band members discuss the making of the film, as well as the behind-the-scenes details of the tour.

The screening will be open to the public and proceeds from the event will benefit Hollywood Arts, an arts academy that provides creative and commercial art instruction to homeless and at-risk youth. (Vai has been a member of the board of directors for Hollywood Arts since 2007.)

2010 will mark Vai's 30-year touring anniversary. Vai first stepped into the spotlight in 1980 as a guitarist in Frank Zappa's band but his indelible contribution to music came during his solo career, which includes combined sales of nearly six million albums. "Live In Minneapolis - Where The Wild Things Are" was filmed during Vai's sold-out Sound Theories tour which spanned several continents.

The film is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-ray September 29. A live audio CD that contains select performances from the DVD will also be released on September 29.
