22-05-2019 12:00:00 22-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Yngwie Malmsteen | 8:00 PM Yngwie Malmsteen was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 30, 1963. The youngest child in a household that included his mother Rigmor, sister Ann Louise, and brother Bjorn, Yngwie originally had no interest in music. However, on September 18, 1970, Yngwie saw a TV special on the death of guitar iconoclast Jimi Hendrix. Seven-year-old Yngwie watched with awe as Hendrix blasted the audience with torrents of feedback and sacrificed his guitar in flames. The day Jimi Hendrix died, the guitar-playing Yngwie was born. In Time Magazine, Yngwie found himself included as one of the "10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players." Near the end of the year, Yngwie and his management company decided to begin releasing rare archival concert footage. The first was Yngwie in Korea, shot during his 2001 War to End All Wars Tour, in Seoul, South Korea. And that, asserts Yngwie, is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come! Doors: 6:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm. Sony Hall is a first come, first seated venue. Arrive early for the best seats! http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=373761 Sony Hall Sony Hall
