Following the overwhelmingly positive reception to his latest album, World On Fire, legendary Swedish guitar virtuoso Yngwie J. Malmsteen has announced a spring 2017 U.S. headling tour. Yngwie and his ensemble of top-tier musicians will perform pieces from the legendary neo-classical stylings of Rising Force (1984) as well as songs from the fierce World On Fire, and material from everything in between.
Malmsteen last toured the States in 2016 on the “Generation Axe” tour alongside Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi, playing to more than 70,000 people over 27 dates. Now, Malmsteen is hitting the road once again, and the World On Fire tour promises to be one of his most explosive yet!
