Following his acclaimed 2009/10 world tour performing the “MSG 30th Anniversary Show”, where Michael was joined by (original MSG vocalist) Gary Barden, alongside a host of other classic rock legends, including Carmine Appice, Simon Phillips, Chris Slade and Chris Glen, Schenker‘s “Temple Of Rock” is ready to conquer the U.K. with a brand new kick-ass, all-star line-up.
Boasting ex-SCORPIONS stars Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz on drums and bass, respectively, MSG stalwart Wayne Findlay on keyboards and the magnificent Doogie White (ex-RAINBOW, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) on vocals, these “Temple Of Rock” concerts will include a plethora of hits spanning Michael Schenker‘s colourful career.
Songs to be performed by the TEMPLE OF ROCK include UFO‘s “Rock Bottom” and “Doctor Doctor”, MSG‘s “Armed And Ready” and “Into The Arena”, and the SCORPIONS classics “Another Piece of Meat” and “Rock You like A Hurricane”. In addition, Schenker will perform brand new songs from the recently released “Temple Of Rock” album alongside other solo favorites such as “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead”, “Miss Claustrophobia” and “Hangin On”.
