Yngwie Malmsteen plays The Chance in Poughkeepsie this Saturday, May 13. Showtime 7pm.

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 once saw Yngwie with guitarist George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) at The Chance 13 years ago and it was just an amazing sight to see. The man is incredible. An after show party will immediately follow the concert next door at the Nuddy Bar and Grill.
