MSG US Tour 2022 Lineup: Michael Schenker * Ronnie Romero * Steve Mann * Barend Courbois * Bodo Schopf

Few rock guitarists on this planet have had such a lasting influence on so many renowned musicians as MICHAEL SCHENKER. With his outstandingly fluid style, inexhaustible wealth of ideas, and instinctive feel for hooks and melodies, MICHAEL SCHENKER is a living legend who, despite his longstanding and distinguished history, still impresses with his unflagging energy and drive. The blond stringsman from Sarstedt, Germany began his international career in the early 1970s with the Scorpions, achieved worldwide fame after joining British rock group U.F.O., and then seamlessly continued his exceptional global success story under his own name, as well as with acts such as MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP (otherwise known as MSG), Temple Of Rock, and MICHAEL SCHENKER Fest. SCHENKER and his career, which has spanned more than five decades, are absolute exceptions in the otherwise short-lived music industry.

“What SCHENKER delivers in terms of sound on Universal is impressive: every instrument shines, is perfectly mixed and sounds in the spheres of the first two records.”– Metal Hammer (DE)

“Big melodies, punchy riffs and of course gripping solos are building the frame for Universal.” – Guitar (DE)

“…yet another gripping chapter in the ongoing MICHAEL SCHENKER saga. There are few artists who, had they retired before the age of 25, could rest assured knowing that their status as a legend was already cemented. SCHENKER is one of those few, and yet he continues to find new ways to showcase his craft, as both a guitarist and a songwriter.” — Defenders Of The Faith Metal

“Always imitated, never bettered, MICHAEL SCHENKER is the real deal and Universal is another slab of solid rock in that sky high monument to genuine talent and commitment to his craft. The return of the King.” — Metal Planet

“…a really great record, showing that MICHAEL SCHENKER still has all of the energy and talent that brought him to where he is today… solid gold and a must own.” — Metal Express Radio
