Yngwie Malmsteen Postpones Shows Due To Doctor’s Orders To Take Some Rest

The legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen made an announcement through his official Twitter account and said that his next few shows on his ongoing U.S. tour have been postponed due to his health-related issues.

Considered as one of the greatest electric guitar players, Malmsteen has been pursuing a very active and long career. On July 24, 2021, he released his latest album, ‘Parabellum.’ The album consists of primarily instrumental songs while just four tracks feature vocals. The album is entirely self-produced, as Malmsteen contributed to every part of its creation, except the drums.

Malmsteen had announced his fall U.S. tour for the promotion of his latest studio album ‘Parabellum’ last summer. His tour started on November 18 and will end on December 18 in Houston. However, the tour didn’t go as planned since Yngwie Malmsteen had to postpone some of his shows, which saddened his fans.

According to the announcement made from his Twitter account, the doctors recommended that Malmsteen rests for a few days. It was stated as an extra note that his health problem is not related to COVID, which is great news. It was also added that all the purchased tickets will be valid for future dates. Yngwie sent his greetings to the fans by saying that he can’t wait to see them again.

Here is the announcement on Twitter:

“Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances (not COVID don’t worry!) and doctor’s orders, Yngwie has been instructed to take a few days rest, so the next few show dates will be postponed for the foreseeable. All purchased tickets and Meet & Greets will be honored on rescheduled dates.”

The follow-up tweet read:

“Yngwie’s looking forward to resting up and seeing all of you when the time comes.”
