An Evening With
At Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center

OME presents Yngwie Malmsteen, to perform at Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center on Monday, May 9th.
Yngwie Johann Malmsteen is a world-renowned guitarist from Stockholm, Sweden. As a young boy, Yngwie
originally had no interest in music, but that all changed on September 18th, 1970 when he saw a TV special on
the late Jimi Hendrix. Seven-year-old Yngwie watched in 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.
Yngwie Malmsteen’s career has spanned over 40 years with over twenty albums to his name. Drawing influence
from classical composers such as Bach, Paganini, and Vivaldi, Yngwie is responsible for birthing the neo-classical
playing style in heavy metal and has come to be known as one of the world’s most impressive guitar players,
with Time Magazine naming him the 7th best on a list of the 11 best guitar players of all time.
Yngwie Malmsteen is back with a whole new tour and will perform one night only at Sugar Loaf Performing Arts
Center, located at 1351 Kings Hwy, Chester, NY 10981, (845) 610-3485. Ticket prices range from $39 to $99, plus
applicable service charges.
