Call it neoclassical, call it virtuoso, call it shred…two words sum it up and more: Yngwie Malmsteen! The guitarist recently played the House of Blues Las Vegas in tour of his most recent release, Blue Lightning, and brought one amazing production with him.
Make no doubt about it, Yngwie has been doing this for a long time, since the 1980s, but nobody does it better than he does! The entire night showcased Malmsteen’s talent not only as a guitarist, but a wonderful showman as well. Although with all his showman moves and amazing technical playing, it may be more accurate to compare him to a wizard creating constant magic all around him.
From the first note to the last, Yngwie never let up and made it quite clear that he remains the best at what he does. Be sure to catch him on the road if you can and in the meantime, checkout some of our favorite shots from the night below!
