I attended the Yngwie Malmsteen show at the Cannery in Nashville, TN last night with my wife. We had a great time, and it was my first time to ever see Yngwie perform live. What an experience! First off, it was loud as hell... and since I knew he has a reputation for playing extremely loud I thought to bring ear plugs for us both. That turned out to be a smart move. :)
Being a huge fan it was great to hear many of the classic Malmsteen cuts such as "I'll See the Light Tonight", "I Am a Viking" and "Far Beyond the Sun". Of course, the show was in support of his new album "Perpetual Flame" with vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens. Owens is an amazing talent and was able to easily handle the vintage Malmsteen material, as well as belt out the new stuff like the record. Yngwie burned up the fretboard as usual... the guy hasn't lost a thing. And his tone was amazing!
Unfortunately, no photos were allowed to be taken during the show.
I'll definitely be attending the next show when comes back through the area.
