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.
