The virtuoso Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen (ex-Alcatrazz) announced new North American 2022 tour dates for May and June. The first show will happen at the Patchogue Theater in Patchogue, NY.
In the statement about the new dates, Malmsteen said: “And for the rest of the world… we’ll have more dates coming for you as soon as we can. Stay tuned! Also, if you don’t see a date near to you – and this also goes for other territories like Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, etc… be patient. We’ll be announcing more dates as soon as we’re able. I promise we’re not avoiding you, we just have to come at the right time!”
Yngwie Malmsteen was born in Stockholm, Sweden back in 1963 and at the age of 10 he formed Track On Earth, his first band that only had him and a friend from school playing the drums. He released 22 studio albums in a career spanning over 40 years.
His first solo album “Rising Force”, released in 1984 won the Guitar Player’s award for Best Rock Album and was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best Rock Instrumental”, reaching no. 60 on the Billboard album chart.
