MICHAEL SCHENKER - New Video Footage Released From Fest “Live” Tokyo Multi-Format Release

Back on March 24th, rock guitar legend Michael Schenker and in-akustik released Michael Schenker Fest “Live” Tokyo - a new live recording and filmed concert on 2CD, 2CD+DVD Combo, LP, DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital. A new clip from the release can be seen below:

Filmed and recorded Tokyo International Forum on August 24th, 2016, this historic concert features guest appearances from some of the greatest rock vocalists who have worked with Schenker including MSG’s Gary Barden and Graham Bonnet, and Robin McAuley of the McAuley Schenker Group. 5,000 fans witnessed an anthology moment of quintessential hard rock music of the highest calibre.

Says Schenker, “It’s a miracle that after all these years, something like this took place with the original band members of MSG. 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.”

Schenker has announced that he will be touring Michael Schenker Fest throughout Europe in October / November 2017. The four UK concerts take in London O2Shepherd’s Bush Empire (November 2nd), Sheffield O2 Academy (November 3rd), Manchester O2 Ritz (November 4th) and Hull City Hall (November 5th).

In recent memory, Michael Schenker’s endeavor to unite rock fans together at his concerts has enraptured his audiences and so it is fitting that his most recent concept of Michael Schenker Fest does not disappoint one bit. The project reunites the original Michael/McAuley Schenker Group vocalists – Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley, plus MSG musicians Steve Mann (guitar, keys), Chris Glen (bass) and Ted McKenna (drums).

Says Schenker, “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.”
