50th Anniversary - IMMORTAL” performed by the current MSG/Michael Schenker Group

Michael Schenker played his first concert with Rudolf and the Scorpions at the very tender age of 11 and he was only 16 when he made his first record with the same band. Several years later when Scorpions opened for UFO, the main band asked the young guitar virtuoso to become their new lead guitarist. Michael accepted and that kick-started an occasionally turbulent but successful collaboration. Still, one band wasn’t enough to vent all his creative ideas. In the 80s and 90s he had a highly successful run with the Michael Schenker Group and the McAuley Schenker Group (MSG). Nowadays the guitarist travels around the world with different concepts including Michael Schenker Fest and Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock, with every incarnation focusing on a different period of his stellar career. Welcoming a guitarist who inspired a whole generation of axemen that went on to make a name for themselves in such bands as Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, Testament, Exodus, Annihilator and many more is a major treat.
