"Rockers, you wanna know how stunning the life of a Rock 'n' Roll band on tour is? ;-) Well, check out our tour and video diary of our tour with Michael Schenker Group / Temple Of Rock!
"30.04.2013 D-Dresden, Tante JU: We leave early (definitely too early for Rock 'n' Roll) on Tuesday morning and head off to Dresden to start our mini tour with Michael Schenker. We pack as much equipment in the bus as possible, get a quick cup of coffee and off we go. After our seven hour drive through beautiful German landscapes and various service stations we enter Dresden and drive directly to the venue, the Club Tante JU. Michael Schenker and his fellow campaigners Herman Rarebell (ex-Scorpions), Francis Buchholz (ex-Scorpions), Doogie White (ex-Rainbow/Yngwie Malmsteen) and Wayne Findlay are already there, doing sound check. We can already hear the Marshall amps roaring through the venue.
"We say hello and go to the backstage area where we get ourselves some beers, before it is our turn to do sound check. After the sound check we head backstage again and have a chat with tonight’s opening band, Lord Bishop. Nice guys and so we prepare ourselves for the show with some more beers. At eight o'clock Lord Bishop open tonight's concert and their deliver a good show. The singer fires up the audience, but not only by his imposing appearance. Then it is our turn. We enter the stage at 21:30 and the venue is well-filled by now. The audience is in a fantastic mood and so our 45 minutes set passes quickly. At 22:30 the headliner gets on stage and delivers a set consisting of classic Scorpions, UFO and MSG songs. We watch the show from our merch stand and are totally impressed. Guitar legend Michael Schenker seems to be in top-notch shape and so we are even more excited about the further tour dates. Back in the backstage area we bring the day to a close with more beer and delicious catering… More...
