Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Yngwie Malmsteen is coming for the first time in Romania on May 13. The Swedish artist who revolutionized the electric guitar and developed the neo-classical style in metal will be performing in Bucharest at Sala Palatului.

Yngwie Malmsteen is considered to be an innovator of the electric guitar alongside Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen. His neo-classical style influenced rock instrumentalists such as Jason Becker, Paul Gilbert, Marty Friedman, Tony MacAlpine and Vinnie Moore. During mid ‘80s, thanks to his technique and Baroque compositions, he quickly became a musical phenomenon with millions of fans worldwide, including in Romania.

Among the hits Malmsteen will be performing on May 13 are Heaven Tonight, You Don’t Remember I’ll Never Forget, Perpetual, Fire & Ice, Seventh Sign,  Forever One, Vengeance, Like An Angel and Evil Eye.
