LATEST Yngwie Malmsteen Tour Dates! AMERICA!!! Are you ready for Yngwie? The latest tour dates have just been announced!

__________________________________

Stone says: My favorite Yngwie Malmsteen album is Trilogy, released back in 1986 on Polydor Records. Man, have I ever listened to that album over and over! A beyond memorable album for me. Trilogy inspired me through each major art project I had to create and complete on time, while back in college during the latter 80’s. Good times. Aw, hell, that album still inspires me to this day.

The great Mark Boals is the vocalist on Trilogy; along with brothers Jens (keyboards) and Anders Johansson (drums).

COLUMBIA, Maryland. – M3 Rock Festival, the definitive, can’t-miss annual gathering of heavy metal bands and those that love them, will turn back clock to the 1980s once more at Columbia, Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion on Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th. For the first time ever, M3 will expand to a 3rd day to host the new M3 Southern Rock Classic.

Known for its idolized metal bands and colorful, devout audience, the first two days of M3 will once again feature full sets of glam rock and heavy metal hits. The festival will take place on two separate stages, each simulcasting the other, giving fans the option to stay in one seat and watch all the bands as they appear on both stages, or move from stage to stage without missing a note.

M3 is internationally renowned, and has attracted fans from six continents, 10 countries and 40 states. Now in its ninth year, I.M.P. Presents M3 Rock Festival starts with The Official M3 Kix-Off Party, which will get things started Friday, April 28th at 3:30pm. Acts playing Friday night are KIX, Loverboy, Winger, Faster Pussycat, Dangerous Toys, Baton Rouge, and Station, with a special VIP acoustic set by Lita Ford. The full-blown 2017 M3 Rock Festival begins Saturday, April 29th at 10:30am and will include Ratt featuring the original members Pearcy, Demartini and Croucier, Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, Dokken, Warrant, Jack Russell’s Great White, Vixen, Loudness, Danger Danger, Autograph, Bang Tango, Vain, and Mitch Malloy.

For the first time, I.M.P. is adding a 3rd day by also presenting the M3 Southern Rock Classic. The all-day extravaganza will feature Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels Band, Outlaws, Black Stone Cherry, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Great Train Robbery, and One Nite Stand.

M3 has become more than a festival. It’s a happening, a congregation of those who fell in love with Hair Metal in the ‘80s and teenagers getting in on it for the first time. Each year VIP and Pavilion seats sell out quickly. Two-day, three-day and VIP packages will go on sale Friday, Dec. 7th at 12:00pm EST through ticketfly.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the Merriweather Post Pavilion and 9:30 Club box offices. If available, single-day tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks. For more information, visit ticketfly.com or M3rockfest.com.
