+ special guest DEPARTED
Michael Schenker, one of music’s most iconic rock guitarists, will embark on a worldwide tour with “Michael Schenker Fest” in 2017/2018. This tour features guest appearances from some of the greatest rock vocalists who have worked with Schenker over the years including M.S.G.’S Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet, and Robin McAuley of the McAuley Schenker Group.
Like a miracle Michael Schenker returns to tour the world with his past original singers from the '80's to celebrate the Michael Schenker Fest with Barden, Bonnet and McAuley.
Says Schenker, “It’s a miracle that after all these years, something like this is taking 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.”
Continues Schenker, “It's an amazing feeling to have all of my M.S.G. Family from the '80's performing together and especially with Graham Bonnet, who I never got to play any concerts after our Assault Attack album that was originally released in 1982. Fortunately, being able to have the participation of original M.S.G. members such as Gary Barden, Chris Glen (bass) and Ted McKenna (drums) being part of it, and somehow, to perform with Robin McAuley and Steve Mann (guitar, keyboards) again as well, is pretty awesome.”
