Event Details


Swedish guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen returns to The Playhouse stage for a night of epic, fast-paced, heavy metal shredding of songs from his new album, Blue Lightning! Yngwie’s career has spanned over 40 years with more than twenty albums to his name. Drawing influence from classical composers such as Bach, Paganini, and Vivaldi, Yngwie is responsible for birthing the neo-classical genre to the world of rock. TIME Magazine named him one of the 10 greatest electric guitar players of all time.

With Blue Lightning, Yngwie Malmsteen highlights not only his enduring dexterity and diversity, but also pays homage to those from the blues and rock worlds who have fuelled his artistic spirit for so long. He has masterfully transformed classics including “Smoke On The Water,” “Paint It Black,” “Purple Haze” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and others into his own inimitable style, and has written and recorded four new tracks for this album.
