Yngwie Malmsteen Announces Fall 2024 Anniversary Tour

Yngwie Malmsteen Announces Fall 2024 Anniversary Tour

Yngwie Malmsteen unveils 2024 fall tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of his solo career.


Kicking off on September 26 in Fort Myers, Florida the 37-date tour will conclude on November 18 at New York City’s Gramercy Theater.

"I'm very excited to play this tour with all you guys and commemorate the launch of my solo career,” says Malmsteen. “It's been an amazing journey and it still feels like it's only beginning. I couldn't have done it without all of you and your support throughout all these years. Looking forward to creating some magic with all of you! More is more!"

Malmsteen’s latest album, ‘Parabellum,’ was released in July 2021 via Music Theories Recordings/Mascot Label Group. The album title is Latin, translating as "Prepare for War."

Yngwie J. Malmsteen was born into a family of classical musicians and opera singers. He received his first guitar on his 5th birthday but started playing it seriously at the age of seven. Originally inspired by the blues, he soon became infatuated with the sound and mind-boggling technique of violin greats such as Nicolo Paganini and Antonio Vivaldi.

In addition to adopting the virtuosity of classical violin into his guitar playing, he also incorporated the philosophical approach of J.S. Bach and other Baroque composers into his own compositions and orchestrations. This resulted in the creation of what is now known as Neo-Classical Hard Rock.

Coming to America as a teenager, he recorded various albums before signing a solo deal in 1984. This upcoming USA tour is in part to commemorate this groundbreaking album, but will also include numbers from over thirty solo releases spanning four decades of Yngwie Malmsteen albums up to the Parabellum album.
