Fan-filmed video footage of legendary guitarist Uli Jon Roth (SCORPIONS) performing on October 10 at De Kreun in Kortrijk, Belgium can be seen below.
Roth will release a new double album, "Scorpions Revisited - Volume 1", in the fall. Uli states: "The material we recorded for this project will be released in two stages, beginning with a double CD, which was recorded last year in the same hall near Hanover that we used for the SCORPIONS rehearsals 1973-1978. Together with an amazing bunch of very talented young musicians, I revisited my personal favourites from the early SCORPIONS period, some of which were written in that same hall. It was an emotional few days and I am very pleased with the results in more ways than one."
He continues: "The idea was to stay truthful to the original spirit of the music, while also putting a new slant on it whenever it felt like the right thing to do. I feel we succeeded in this. It was a intense journey into the past and I think we really managed to bring the songs back to life with a vengeance. They seem to have a timeless quality and it was easy to revisit this music and fill the old songs with new life. For me, personally, it was very inspirational and I hope that some of that translates towards you, dear friends. I really learned a lot from the whole experience."
The second release, which is scheduled for next spring, will be a Blu-ray, featuring live concert footage from Uli's "Scorpions Anniversary Tour" and "lots of other goodies."
