March 3, 2021 – After a solo career that has spanned thirty five years, playing all over the world, Yngwie Malmsteen – the original neo-classical shredder has announced a livestream concert event to be performed in Las Vegas. Billed as “Yngwie Malmsteen: Fully Live! The Very Best Of”, the concert will debut on March 20, 2021 at 7:30 PM (PST.)
Malmsteen first came to this country in the early eighties and joined the band Steeler. He followed that up with a stint in the original Alcatrazz with legendary singer Graham Bonnet. After releasing a studio album (No Parole from Rock and Roll) and a live LP (Live Sentence) Malmsteen left to begin his career as a solo artist. Starting with his first release – “Rising Force”, Yngwie stunned the world with his speedy arpeggios and skillful sweep picking, all in a neo-classical style that amazed listeners. A slew of guitarists followed in his path such as Chris Impelletteri, Michael Angelo Batio, Vinny Moore and others. He has also played with guitarist Steve Vai’s “Generation Axe” troup of touring guitarists.
