Joe Kleon should have stayed home! Terrible review. He's so amazing and able to play songs one-handed that he CAN pose for pics for his fans without missing a note. He was absolutely incredible. His playing was so effortless that he makes it look easy. Thank goodness he DIDN'T turn on all the stacks! He probably couldn't due to city ordnances etc or the venue wouldn't allow it. I saw him play 8 yrs ago at Peabody's Down Under and he had ALL his stacks turned on and it was incredibly loud that it was almost unbearable to tolerate for the first 30 minutes...killer show but the soundwaves were rattling my body...too intense. This time it was loud enough to enjoy. So, no...you DON'T know what you're talking about, Joe. Obviously you're not a guitar player or a fan of Yngwie...or even a fan of guitar or else you'd appreciate his virtuousity! He IS among the greatest living guitar players in the world today along with Satriani and Vai. Metallica also flicks out tons of pics...so do many bands. Yngwie has been doing this since the 80's. But he's not stopping the show to just re-stock...although there were technical difficulties with a few guitar pickups or volume knobs since he switched to Seymour Duncans. But the sound was awesome! Great pickups! Malmsteen's outfit is a little retro for today but he's cool enought to pull-off that look because he delivers the goods with his guitar playing and stage presence. His t-shirts tell the truth...unlike you! Shame on such a superficial review. Scene should hire ME and fire your butt!
