Yngwie Malmsteen - Perth - Review

Just added a review of the Malmsteen gig in Perth thanks to Deryk Thomas (of Anger Management fame). It was unfortunate that the supports of local power pride Black Steel and Voyager were pulled at the last moment, but still an awesome show. Also, unforuntately Deryk's camera was confiscated by a bouncer early into the set (though strangely there were plenty of other cameras visible in the crowd the whole way through), so there aren't too many shots to go with the review.

Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force "Unleash The Fury 2006" tour is hitting Perth on the 19th of November at Metros City, and thanks to Playing  Up Promotions we have a special offer for Western Front members. If you have already signed up you would have received an email telling you about the offer - present a copy of the email at the door and you can get $15 off the door fee (Normally $80)!

If you aren't yet a member but would like to take advantage of the special deal just register and drop me an email asking to be sent the offer. It's as simple as that.

Look forward to seeing you there for a night of insane shredding and riffery.
