It's been a long wait for American and Canadian fans, but come this October guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen will make his triumphant return to North American stages with a Fall headlining tour.

The shred maestro will be out supporting "Relentless", his latest studio album. The trek will kick off on Thursday, October 13th at New York City's Irving Plaza. Of the upcoming dates, Malmsteen commented, "I am very much looking forward to playing new pieces from 'Relentless', as well as Malmsteen classics. Fans can expect the unexpected... I raise the bar with every performance I do and this tour will be no different."

In other Malmsteen news, baseball fans will soon get a treat as the guitar legend is scheduled to not only perform his explosive version of the National Anthem, but he will also throw out the first pitch at the Florida Marlins home game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, August 6th.

Released late last year, Yngwie Malmsteen's aptly-named latest album, "Relentless", contains more than 60 minutes of new material and showcases the guitar great at his best with the signature virtuosity and mind-blowing technical speed for which he has come to be known. The album also features striking vocals from Tim "Ripper" Owens [Judas Priest, Iced Earth], who first collaborated with Malmsteen on 2008's critically-acclaimed "Perpetual Flame", Malmsteen's first album for the Rising Force Records label.
