According to a posting on the Michael Schenker News and Tour Information web site, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP was forced to cancel last night's (Nov. 25) concert in Taipei, Taiwan at Liberty Square due to guitarist/mainman Michael Schenker's "illness." The show was the final date of the band's Asian tour, which has been plagued with problems. The group's cancelled its concert at Tokyo, Japan's Nakano Sunplaza on Nov. 17 after three songs because Michael was also allegedly suffering from an unspecified illness. A detailed report on the Tokyo show can be found at this location. MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP bassist Rev Jones subsequently issued a statement apologizing to fans in Japan and Thailand for Michael Schenker's performance, stating that he "could not believe how bad Schenker played. Although me, Pete [Holmes, drums], Jari [Tiura; vocals], and Wayne [Findley; guitar/keyboards] all gave 110%, in my eyes he gave less then 1% and that is so disrespectful not only to the band and the crew but also to the loyal MSG fans," he wrote. "So again I apologize for his actions because he would never apologize himself. We have two more shows and it is OVER."
