Due to the critical acclaim received on his 2012 UK tour, legendary guitarist Michael Schenker will return with his classic rock band Temple Of Rock on a 12-date UK tour in April 2013.

Boasting Ex-Scorpions stars Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz on drums and bass respectively, MSG stalwart Wayne Findlay on keyboards and the magnificent Doogie White (ex Rainbow/Yngwie Malmsteen) on vocals, these Temple Of Rock concerts will include a plethora of hits spanning Michael Schenker's colourful career.
