Yngwie Malmsteen

The Captiol Theatre presents Yngwie Malmsteen on the World On Fire Tour on Sat, Jun 17! Yngwie is a swedish guitar player and songwriter, born and raised in a musical family, and first became known in the 1980s for his neoclassical metal playing style in heavy metal. Yngwie’s first solo album, Rising Force (now considered the bible for neoclassical rock) was released in 1984 and made it to #60 on the Billboard charts, an impressive feat for a mostly instrumental guitar album with no commercial airplay. The album also gained Yngwie a GRAMMY® nomination for best rock instrumental performance. He was voted Best New Talent in several readers’ polls, Best Rock Guitarist the year after and Rising Force became Album of the Year. Rising Force blazed a trail on the concert circuit that established Yngwie as one of rock guitar’s brightest new stars and added a new genre to the music lexicon: neoclassical rock.

In 1997, Yngwie proved that he was much more than a rock phenomenon. After months of intensive work, Yngwie produced his first completely classical work, Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in Eb minor, Op. 1.

Tickets are $49, $39, & $29. Performance is at the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St, Downtown Clearwater.
