Meet YNGWIE MALMSTEEN In San Francisco Tomorrow

November 8, 2005

Guitar Player magazine will celebrate Yngwie Malmsteen's arrival in San Francisco on Wednesday, November 9 by bringing boxes of the guitar hero's October 2005 Guitar Player cover issue, which he will be signing after his performance. Ten lucky Malmsteen maniacs who by clicking on the link below will win VIP tickets and a special meet-and-greet session with the Swedish guitar virtuoso at soundcheck time in the early evening.

Yngwie Malmsteen has been blowing six-string minds with his high-octane classical heavy metal since he first appeared in Guitar Player's "Spotlight" column in 1983. He came to epitomize the extreme shred style, and his extreme behavior — an air-rage incident being the most infamous — earned him notorious reputation. Malmsteen's new record, "Unleash the Fury" (Spitfire) is packed with his patented tone and laced with the same incendiary licks that made his name synonymous with shred, a genre that now thrives underground.

Show details: Another Planet presents Yngwie Malmsteen Guitar Player Night on Wednesday, November 9 at The Independent (628 Divisadero Street) in San Francisco. Doors 7:30 p.m., show 8:00 p.m.
