Vocalist David Van Landing is fronting Michael Schenker‘s band on the current North American tour, which kicked off on October 3 in Modesto, California. David has stepped in for Robin McAuley, who was originally slated to take part in the trek after recently reuniting with Schenker for their first full tour together in almost 20 years.
Van Landing, who has previously done three tours with MSG and had a short stint with CRIMSON GLORY, said prior to the start of the trek: “I am just looking forward to getting out on the road again with the boys and seeing all my old friends and hopefully meet some new ones!!”
In addition to Schenker and Van Landing, the lineup for the tour includes Pete Holmes on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitar and Elliott Rubinson on bass.
Schenker‘s latest album, “Temple Of Rock”, was released in Europe on September 23, 2011 and in North America on October 11, 2011 on CD and LP through Schenker‘s own Inakustik label via MVD Entertainment Group.
