ULI JON ROTH: U.S. Touring Plans 'Unclear'

The following message was posted on legendary guitarist Uli Jon Roth's (ex-SCORPIONS) official web site:

"It is currently still unclear precisely when U.J.R. will begin touring the US this year. There have been some rumours that Uli would be part of the UFO tour, which was being envisaged at the time. Accordingly, some over-eager promoters jumped the gun and advertised his name well before contracts were signed.

"For quite some time it looked as though the UFO tour might have to be cancelled, because of newly tightened passport laws, which resulted in the unfortunate outcome that Pete Way, UFO's bassist did not manage to get a permission to enter the country in time. This, in turn, led to the fact that Uli and his management decided it would be wise to postpone the start of the tour as it looked very uncertain at that point. It appears that UFO have now decided to play the North American tour with a different bass player.

"There are plenty of offers on the table for a U.J.R. tour of the US, but it will take some time to finalize the dates, which will have to be integrated with further European shows. We apologize for the inconvenience this uncertainty has brought as apparently some fans have already bought tickets to see Uli play in the US. Please, don't buy any tickets to U.J.R. concerts unless they are officially announced on this site!

"Uli Jon Roth will utilize the time for new SKY ORCHESTRA recordings instead, to continue the work on his next release 'Requiem For An Angel'. The recordings will take place at Uli's Skylight Manor Studios in Wales and are scheduled to begin on April 10."
