Venue: Dewan Wawasan, Menara PGRM
Yngwie (pronounced “ING-vay”) Malmsteen, born Lars Johann Yngve Lannerback on June 30, 1963, is a world-renowned six-string maestro from Stockholm, Sweden. His revolutionary guitar style – combining elements of classical music with the speed and volume of heavy metal – made him a staple of the ’80s rock scene.
With musical influences drawn from classical composers such as Bach, Paganini and Vivaldi, Yngwie is responsible for birthing the neo-classical genre to the world of rock – mixing his love for electric guitar sound with the melodic content of baroque classical music.
Decades later, he’s still a legend among guitarists, having sold millions of albums and influenced generations of rockers since and having sold out shows in arenas all over the world.
