Legendary guitarist Michael Schenker has announced that his brand new classic rock band Temple Of Rock will embark on a four-date UK tour in May 2012. The tour kicks-off at the Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall on Wednesday May 9th.

Following his acclaimed 2009/10 world tour performing the 'MSG 30th Anniversary Show', where Michael was joined by original MSG vocalist Gary Barden, alongside a host of other classic rock legends including Carmine Appice, Simon Phillips, Chris Slade and Chris Glen, Schenker's Temple Of Rock is ready to conquer the UK with a brand new kick-ass, all-star line-up.

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.

Songs to be performed by the Temple Of Rock include UFO's 'Rock Bottom' and 'Doctor Doctor', MSG's 'Armed And Ready' and 'Into The Arena', and the Scorpions classics 'Another Piece Of Meat' and 'Rock You Like A Hurricane'. In addition, Schenker will perform brand new songs from the recently released 'Temple Of Rock' album alongside other solo favourites such as 'Before The Devil Knows You're Dead', 'Miss Claustrophobia' and 'Hangin On'.

In 2010, Michael Schenker received the Marshall '11' Award at the Classic Rock Magazine Roll Of Honour awards; in 2011 he rocked the High Voltage Festival, and also played some UK dates with Black Country Communion. Now he's back in 2012 with the Temple Of Rock world tour.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
