Schenker Fest: Michael Schenker Concert Review

My first concert of 2018 is another one for the books.
I saw the Michael Schenker Fest in Cleveland.
Michael is a super amazing guitarist who has played with Scorpions, UFO, his own group Michael Schenker Group, and others.
On this tour, as well as his latest album Resurrection, he has three of his classic singers with him, Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet, and Robin McAuley, as well as current singer Doogie White.
Yes four singers!!!!
His rhythm section is one he had in the early 80s.
They include bassist Chris Glen and Ted McKenna, and second guitarist/keyboardist Steve Mann.
Believe it or not, all of these musicians make a fun and loud rock show.
Several songs from Michael’s past and present, with each singer having their moments to shine, not only on their own, but together.
This was a very fun show.
I went with my friend Kevin Montavon and we had a great time.
Michael is a true genius on the guitar.
If you don’t know who he is, look him up.
Rock And Roll!!!!
More shows to come.
My next one is April 3 in Louisville, KY, in which I will be seeing Accept singer UDO Dirkschneider.
