Guitar Gods bring 2014 show to Pharr

20140704 Yngwie-MalmsteenOn July 11, at the Pharr Events Center Yngnwie Malmsteen, Bumblefoot, Uli Jon Roth and Gary Hoey will all perform in one night in part with the Guitar Gods tour.

Yngnwie Malmsteen is an accomplished guitarist who had a focus in the rock/heavy metal genre. In addition to countless awards from music and instrument specific publications, TIME Magazine hailed him as one of the ten greatest electric guitarists.

Malmsteen released his bestselling autobiography in 2013 called “Relentless” which coincided with a successful tour that played to full houses all over the world. The only way he could top that in 2014 was to hand pick an all-star lineup of GUITAR GODS to share the stage with him on a magical full North American tour.

 “Fans can expect the unexpected,” Malmsteen said, regarding his live shows. “I raise the bar with every performance I do and this tour will be no different.”

Held in the highest regard in his own right, Roth brings the very special 40th Anniversary Scorpions set that has been playing to frenzied audiences in Europe to North America. Embracing his storied history with the band and digging deep into their catalog for this tour.

Acclaimed for his accomplishments for perfecting his playing in multiple genres (rock, blues, surf) and respected by both fans and peers alike, Hoey performs his radio hits such as the Billboard Top 5 smash “Hocus Pocus” along with other favorites.

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Bumblefoot (as seen in the just released DVD “Appetite for Democracy” which documents the bands Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel residency) embarks on his first solo tour, playing songs from his entire critically praised recorded history.

Doors open for the event at 7 p.m. and tickets range from $20 to $40 for general admission, reserved seating and continental rows. All ages are welcomed. Go to ticketmaster.com for tickets or call 800-745-3000.
