According to the web site of the Granada Theatre in Dallas, Texas, tonight's (July 1) MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP concert at the venue has been cancelled. However, despite rumors to the contrary, the band's current U.S. tour has not been called off and will continue as planned.
MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP is performing timeless classics from all stages of Michael's illustrious career, including SCORPIONS, UFO and MSG, to commemorate his "Tales of Rock 'n' Roll", which is out now. Support on all dates comes from San Francisco-based guitar virtuoso Doug Doppler, signed to Steve Vai's Favored Nations label.
MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP's current touring lineup is as follows:
Michael Schenker (guitar)
Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards)
Jari Tiura (vocals)
Bodo Schopf (drums)
Frank Rummler (bass)
MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP released "Tales of Rock 'n' Roll", a special CD to celebrate the band's 25-year anniversary, on August 1, 2006 via Locomotive Records. The CD contains Michael Schenker's signature riffage on new cuts featuring an all-star assembly of singers who have recorded with Schenker over the past quarter-century: Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden, Robin McAuley, Kelly Keeling, Leif Sundin, Chris Logan and Michael's most recent vocalist, Jari Tiura. UFO's Pete Way chips in with bass for this special occasion and RACER X vocalist Jeff Martin is behind the kit.
