(New York, NY) - It's been a long wait for American and Canadian fans, but this October guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen returns to North American stages with a Fall headlining tour in support of his latest release, Relentless. The trek will kick off on Thursday, October 13th at New York City's Irving Plaza. Please see below for the itinerary; more dates will be announced shortly.
"I am very much looking forward to playing new pieces from Relentless, as well as Malmsteen classics," Malmsteen commented. "Fans can expect the unexpected...I raise the bar with every performance I do and this tour will be no different."
In other Malmsteen news, baseball fans will soon get a treat as the guitar legend is scheduled not only to perform his explosive version of the National Anthem but also to throw out the first pitch at the Florida Marlins home game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, August 6th.
Released late last year, Yngwie Malmsteen's aptly-named latest album, Relentless, contains more than 60 minutes of new material and showcases the guitar great at his best with the signature virtuosity and mind-blowing technical speed for which he has come to be known. The album also features striking vocals from Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), who first collaborated with Malmsteen on 2008's critically-acclaimed Perpetual Flame (Malmsteen's first album for the Rising Force Records label).
