Celebrated rock guitarist Michael Schenker will reunite with not one, but three of his former vocalists for a spectacular series of concerts billed as 'Michael Schenker Fest'. The dates, which will see the former Scorpions and UFO legend joined by Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley, are set to take place across the UK in November.
The trek, which takes in four concerts starting in London and ending in Hull, will also see Schenker joined by MSG musicians Steve Mann (guitar, keys), Chris Glen (bass) and Ted McKenna (drums). The full list of dates can be viewed below.
Says Schenker about the announcement: “It’s a miracle that after all these years, a tour like this will take place with the original band members of “M.S.G.”. Being able to go back to those days and celebrate the music is an exciting experience for us, as well as for old and new fans. To being able to re-experience, and for the new audience to get a feel of what it was like, is incredibly enjoyable.”
