MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP: U.S. Tour Pushed Back To 2007

Legendary guitarist Michael Schenker's web site has been updated with the following message:

"Due to the serious familiar problems of MSG singer Jari Tiura, we're sad to announce that the planned U.S. tour from MSG in autumn 2006 has to be deferred to 2007. The new dates will be announced as soon as possible."

MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP released "Tales of Rock 'n' Roll", a special CD to celebrate the band's 25-year anniversary, on August 1 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 current vocalist, Jari Tiura. UFO's Pete Way chips in with bass for this special occasion and RACER X drummer Jeff Martin is behind the kit.

The acclaimed German lead guitarist has recorded 34 studio albums with 10 different bands, including SCORPIONS, UFO, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, and the MCAULEY/SCHENKER GROUP. Add to that eight live albums and five compilations and you get a staggering 47 Michael Schenker albums.
