'3 Guitar Heroes' Tour Featuring SCHENKER, ROTH And WEST: 'Some Shows' Potponed

"Some shows" on the previously announced "3 Guitar Heroes" tour featuring Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West have been postponed, according to a message on the trek's official web site. Manager Bob Ringe was the mastermind behind the union, and there are some very special surprises up their collective sleeves for this excursion. Following sets by each of these legends, the evening will climax with a jam of all "3 Heroes" on stage together, with special guests earmarked to join them in most markets.

On the plans for this excursion, Leslie West shared, "I am honored to be a part of the '3 Guitar Heroes' tour with Uli Roth and Michael Schenker.

"My manager Bob and I have been discussing a run like this for ages, and when the opportunity came up I hopped on board. That's right the guy who just had his leg amputated.

"These guys are monster players and this should be a lot of fun."

Added Michael Schenker, "It is very exciting to be part of a tour that has very deeply rooted connections with two guitarists that have been at their best since the start of their careers.

"When I was around 14 years old, I saw a guy on stage playing amazing guitar. It was Uli, and he was around my age. Three years later while with the SCORPIONS, I chose to join UFO and found the best possible replacement in Uli. I knew my brother Rudolf and Klaus were in good hands.

"When I was 16 years old, Leslie West was one of my favorite guitarists. He had just recorded 'Theme For An Imaginary Western' with MOUNTAIN, a song featuring one of my all-time favorite lead-breaks on it. Looking back, Leslie is the last guitarist I ever copied seeing that from when I was 17 on, I went completely my own way.

"So, here we are after all these years on stage together, celebrating the phenomenon rock guitar."

The "3 Guitar Heroes" tour is booked by Wayne Forte and Ben Shprits at Entourage Talent, and managed by Bob Ringe of Survival Management.
