Another year and another DVD release from the increasingly prolific Michael Schenker but the guitar hero’s latest fret-melting trip down memory lane might just be his most evocative yet.

Michael Schenker Fest Live In Tokyo will be available across all formats – including vinyl – via in-akustik from March 24.

And it features a Who’s Who of legendary rock frontmen as Schenker delves deep into his solo back catalogue.

The former Scorpions man said: “It’s a miracle that, after all these years, something like this took 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 be able to re-experience the past – and for the new audience to get a feel of what it was like back then – is incredibly enjoyable.”

Filmed and recorded at the Tokyo International Forum on August 24, 2016, the historic concert features guest appearances from some of the greatest rock vocalists who have worked with Schenker.

Joining the in-form axe slinger on stage are M.S.G.’s Gary Barden and Graham Bonnet plus Robin McAuley of the McAuley Schenker Group. 5,000 fans witnessed what will go down in history as one of the ultimate Schenker masterclasses.
