According to the Michael Schenker News And Tour Information web site, vocalist David Van Landing will front Michael Schenker‘s band on the upcoming North American tour, which is scheduled to kick off on October 3 in Modesto, California. David will be stepping 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: “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 forthcoming tour is expected to include 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.
