The Newton Theatre presents guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen

(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents guitar legend Yngwie J. Malmsteen on Saturday, November 16, 2024 at 8:00pm. Malmsteen's career has spanned over 40 years with over twenty albums to his name.

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.

Drawing influence from classical composers such as Bach, Paganini, and Vivaldi, Yngwie is responsible for birthing the neo-classical genre to the world of 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.

Tickets range from $34-$79 and are available for purchase online starting Friday, July 19th at 10:00am.  The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.

The historic Newton Theatre was founded in 1924. It is a beautifully restored 605 seat performing arts center in the heart of Sussex County, presenting diverse programming, including world-renowned music acts, comedians, family productions, holiday shows and much more.

"Yes sir, "Beowulf" and it just came out on May 23; our last one was 2002," said Pangaea keyboardist Corey Schenck. "We halted in 2008 and took a break until 2021. So, we took a lengthy breather before we got back together to work again, we're still together and we have the five original members who started the band back in 1989, we've added a sixth person to help us because live we can't cover all of the parts we do on the record and we didn't want to do back tracks, so we have a sixth member now but all of the originals are back."
