Rated among the 10 greatest electric guitar players of all time by Time Magazine, Yngwie Malmsteen, brings his talent to rock the Kalamazoo State Theatre for one night only on November 2nd! Yngwie has dominated the world of solo guitar for two decades. When he was barely 20, Yngwie exploded onto the music scene with his jaw-dropping technique of lightning fast harmonic minor scalar riffing. His 1984 album, “Yngwie J. Malmsteen’s Rising Force,” established seemingly overnight the style now referred to a neo-classical melodic rock.
A legend in both style and technique, Yngwie’s long career reached new heights when his totally classical work for orchestra and solo electric guitar, “Concerto Suite,” was released, proving that his classical credentials were genuine. A respected musician among both his peers and his fans, Yngwie continues to play and compose at a level of mastery that many career musician only dream of.
