Exciting news for our US readers – you’ll have a chance to see our favorite neoclassical Shredder-In-Chief, Yngwie Malmsteen.
Not that Yngwie hasn’t been busy – with appearances in many guitar magazines, Miami Music Television, That Metal Show, and even some rumors about Yngwie being featured on Sweeden’s paper money – the guy’s been pretty busy!
So back to the tour.
Yngwie will be playing songs from his recently released album, “Relentless”, as well as some of the old classics. The guy has alot of material to choose from.
Yngwie had this to say about the tour, which kicks off in New York in October:
“I am very much looking forward to playing new pieces from ‘Relentless,’ as well as Malmsteen classics. Fans can expect the unexpected…I raise the bar with every performance I do and this tour will be no different.”
Also, if you’re in the Florida area on August 6th, you might want to buy some baseball tickets – as Yngwie will be playing the National Anthem and tossing the first pitch at the Florida Marlins game at home, against the St. Louis Cardinals.
