Michael Schenker will embark on a nationwide UK tour with his band Temple of Rock in January 2016, including a stop at Islington Assembly Hall on 30 January.
Tickets are available on 1 May via www.thegigcartel.com and the 24-hour box office: 0844 478 0898.
Schenker will perform tracks from his current studio album ‘Spirit On A Mission’, a collection of 12 guitar-driven songs that highlight the distinctive style of the former Scorpions and UFO member.
The album, recorded at Kidroom Studios in Germany, features Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz (best known for Scorpions’ 1979 album ‘Lovedrive’) as well as Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker.
“The picture was album balance for me and combine many years of emotions in one,” says Schenker of his latest studio offering. “I wanted lots of double bass drum to keep the fast songs rolling like a train with lots of energy covered with interesting elements, a couple of my UFO days-type of mid tempos and the seven string low sound to get a very wide range of sounds and emotions.”
Watch Schenker perform some of these songs, as well as all the Michael Schenker Group, UFO, and Scorpions classics at Islington Assembly Hall on 30 January 2016.
