Yngwie Malmsteen plays The Chance in Poughkeepsie Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30pm.
Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, who became known for his neo-classical style of heavy metal, is “arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the 80s” according to Steve Huey of AllMusic.Time Magazine named Malmsteen one of the 10 greatest electric guitar players of all time in 2009. Classic albums from Yngwie Malmsteen include Rising Force, Marching Out, Trilogy, and Odyssey. I've seen Yngwie a few times over the years and he's always an amazing sight to see. The man is incredible.
