Michael Schenker announces "Michael Schenker Fest" November UK Tour with original M.S.G. vocalists


Michael Schenker announces four UK November concerts for his “Michael Schenker Fest” tour that will reunite the original three M.S.G. vocalists, Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley, plus MSG musicians Steve Mann (guitar, keyboards), Chris Glen (bass) and Ted McKenna (drums).

Dates include O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London (Thursday 2nd November), O2 Academy, Sheffield (Friday 3rd November), O2 Ritz, Manchester (Saturday 4th November) and Hull City Hall (Sunday 5th November).

Tickets for the Hull City Hall concert will go on sale from 12 noon on Friday 17th March (today).

Tickets for the London, Sheffield and Manchester shows goes on sale to the general public at 10am on Monday 20th March, but O2 Priority customers can take advantage of their pre-sale which starts at 12 noon on Friday 17th March (today).

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.”

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 including Gary Barden, Chris Glen (bass) and Ted McKenna (drums) being part of it, and to perform with Robin McAuley and Steve Mann (guitar, keyboards) again as well, is pretty awesome.”
