Michael Schenker Fest’ 2017 UK Tour Starts November 2nd

Celebrated rock guitarist Michael Schenker will start touring “Michael Schenker Fest” in less than a month. The tour includes dates in London O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire (Nov 2), Sheffield O2 Academy (Nov 3), Manchester O2 Ritz (Nov 4) and Hull City Hall (Nov 5).

 

Tickets for the concerts at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire London, O2 Academy Sheffield and O2 Ritz Manchester are on sale from Ticketmaster and Ticketweb.  Tickets for the Hull City Hall concert are on sale from the Hull City box office booking link – hullboxoffice.com.

UK rock band Departed will be support Michael Schenker on all UK dates.

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’ doesn’t disappoint. 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.

Krissy Matthews Releases New Live Album ‘Live At Freak Valley’

live-at-freak-valley

Krissy Matthews Band are set to embark on a UK tour in March and April to celebrate the release of their first live album ‘Live At Freak Valley‘. Released by Proper Records on Friday 14th April, the live album was recorded at the Freak Valley Festival in Siegen, Germany on May 27, 2016. It really catches the adrenalin and pure excitement of the band in all their glory.  

Too many bands release “live records” but half of it is over dubbed in the studio and the f*** ups are erased,” says Matthews. “On Freak Valley you get the real deal. No overdubs.

Originally from Oxford, Krissy’s band has often been described as an exciting, high octane, power rock trio steeped in blues roots. 24 year old Matthews has performed at some of Europe’s most iconic music venues including Ronnie Scott’s, Loreley, Tanzbrunnen and Festa Avante. He’s also opened for many high profile recording artists at the top of their game including Joe Bonamassa, Toto, Gregg Allman and Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Pre-order the album from Amazon.

Track listing:

  1. Feeling For The Blues
  2. I’ve Been Searching
  3. All Night Long
  4. Searching The Desert For The Blues
  5. Language by Injection
  6. The Soul Will Never Die
  7. Bad Boy
  8. Freedom
  9. Hit The Rock
  10. Roadsick Blues
  11. Bubbles And The Seven Phones
