Yngwie Malmsteen -- New York, NY -- October 26th, 2008
 
Forget the ego and the fat jokes, Yngwie Malmsteen and his Rising Force put on one hell of a show Sunday night at the Blender Theater in New York City. It was one of the best shows I've been to in a while and the band really, truly sounded great. Tim "Ripper" Owens did a tremendous job on vocals. He soared through classic Yngwie like "I'll See The Light, Tonight" and "You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget", new Yngwie ("Death Dealer", "Red Devil") and even a cover of Rainbow's "Gates Of Babylon" with such zest and energy that his performance was really remarkable and impressive. And certainly, the man himself, Yngwie Johann Malmsteen did not disappoint. Impressive as always on his many guitars, Yngwie was also a stage presence to be reckoned with. He is one of the few guitarists who can command a stage the way the lead vocalist needs to. Watching Tim and Yngwie share that space and work with such stage intelligence as to know when to take center spotlight and when to work just as hard in the background was a pleasure to watch. I have to say this was one of the few concerts I've been to where I really did not want it to end.

The set list (In no particular order):

Death Dealer
Never Die
Damnation Game
Red Devil
Live To Fight (Another Day)
Gates Of Babylon
Magic City (Yngwie on vocals)
Black Star (Instrumental)
Crown Of Thorns
I'll See The Light, Tonight
You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget
Dreaming
I Am A Viking

and a slew of other instrumentals from Yngwie (can't recall all of them right now).

All in all a really terrific, professional perfromance by all involved. A pure pleasure to behold and I cannot wait for the Rising Force to return to NY.

thanks for posting that \m/

I saw them at hollywood 2 weeks back ..loved it! Got 6 of Yngwie's guitar picks!!

It was a great show .. Tim sounds great on the new songs. I specially loved Damnation Game and Red Devil.

Fuck the critics and detractors. Yngwie is pure genius. Period.

Yeah. I saw Yngwie back in 2006 while Doogie White was still singing but I basically thought the same thing. You can make fun of Yngwie all you want, but he puts on a really great show. I'm upset I missed him on this tour.

I guess I should get the new album huh?

DioSab 10-28-2008 12:04 PM

The new album (Perpetual Flame) is actually quite good. I feel it's the most straightforward heavy metal/hard rock album that Yngwie has done. The more classical-influenced tunes don't really start until the second half of the album. These tunes are also good, but the first five or six songs really just wallop you in the gut. The heaviness is also due of course to Tim "Ripper" Owens' singing style which truly hits home on this album. I hope Tim sticks around for a few more Yngwie albums cause I love them as a team. A very good album all around.

Thanks a lot for posting this setlist, I'll be seeing Yngwie this Sunday and was curious as to what he was playing. I'm glad to see all the best tracks off the new album, should be a great show.

I don't see why not. I can only assume Trilogy and Baroque and Roll were also included.

I'm kind of on the fence about whether to get this one or not!
