Tickets for the concerts at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire London, O2 Academy Sheffield and O2 Ritz Manchester are on O2 Priority Pre-Sale from 12 noon on Friday 17th March, and will go on general sale from 10am on Monday 20th March from Ticketmaster and Ticketweb.

In recent memory, Michael Schenker's endeavor to unite rock fans together at his concerts has enraptured his audiences and so it is fitting that his most recent concept of 'Michael Schenker Fest' does not disappoint one bit. The project reunites the original Michael/McAuley Schenker Group vocalists – Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley, plus MSG musicians Steve Mann (guitar, keys), Chris Glen (bass) and Ted McKenna (drums).
Says Schenker, "It's a miracle that after all these years, a tour like this will take place with the original band members of "M.S.G.". Being able to go back to those days and celebrate the music is an exciting experience for us, as well as for old and new fans. To being able to re-experience, and for the new audience to get a feel of what it was like, is incredibly enjoyable."
