Guitar heroes the likes of Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Plini are coming together for Guitar.com Live, our first-ever free virtual show which brings together artists, brands and fans from 2-4 October 2020.

Alongside Shepherd and Plini, Angie Swan, Kirk Fletcher, Jared James Nichols, Justus West and Shannon Lauren Callihan will be giving exclusive interviews, hosting masterclasses and, of course, performing their hit tracks at Guitar.com Live.

Also on the bill are industry stalwarts Carlos Lopez, Master Builder at the Fender Custom Shop, Shelby Pollard of Black Bobbin, and Paul Uhl of Chase Bliss Audio. Six-string influencers Mike Adams (Puisheen), Ryan from 60 Cycle Hum and Mrs. Smith will also be leading panels and workshops during the show.

This star-studded lineup will join previously announced artists Joe Bonamassa, Mateus Asato, Ariel Posen and Daniel Donato – and there will be more to come.

Plini, known for his cutting-edge guitar music, will be sharing new details about what’s next for him in a live Q&A session at Guitar.com Live. Find out what the virtuoso – once dubbed “the future of exceptional guitar playing” by Steve Vai himself – has in store for listeners.

Meanwhile, legendary blues rocker Kenny Wayne Shepherd will be discussing the thrilling new signature guitar that he designed with Fender – one of the official partners of Guitar.com Live.

In last week’s artist announcement for Guitar.com Live, we revealed that Joe Bonamassa will be showing off the exciting instruments from his collection – which, in his words includes “some of the rarest and most interesting guitars in all of Nerdville”.

Besides artists, Guitar.com Live will host Fender, Ernie Ball Music Man, PRS Guitars, Taylor Guitars, Harmony Guitars and Mono as they lift the lid on brand-new products from the virtual show floor.

Guitar.com Live will be held across three virtual spaces:

  • The Main Stage, with artist performances, masterclasses and video podcasts
  • The Lounge, with industry discussions, gear reviews and interviews
  • The Showcase, a bespoke virtual showroom where brands will launch products and host Q&As
