Yngwie Malmsteen has been inducted into the Swedish Music Hall of Fame in honour of his decades-long contribution music. Yngwie has had a busy couple of months – as well as the release of the brand new 2CD+DVD album Live In Tampa, Yngwie has played sold out shows in Tokyo, Japan and Bucharest and is joining an amazing line up including Ozzy Osbourne and Kiss for the Monsters Of Rock Festival in Brazil.
Yngwie J. Malmsteen has been blowing minds across the globe with his incredible guitar skills and showmanship for over 35 years so it’s only natural that all the recent activity has sparked a renewed interest in Malmsteen’s unique brand of guitar histrionics. The excitement levels are truly hitting 11 as June gets closer and Yngwie and his band return for the first time in a decade ready to strike awe into the legions of guitar fans.
Yngwie is also back in the studio at the moment working on a new album so keep your ears peeled for some new shredding soon.
