WHO MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST
WHEN Oct 30th, 2018
WHERE LIVE MUSIC CLUB - TREZZO/MILAN
After 28 years of concerts where I have the chance to see all the best in hard'n'heavy world, I 've honestly never thought to feel again so many emotions throughout this 2 hour and a half.
After the smart ABSOLVA, MICHAEL SCHENKER and his seven (!!) partners in crime had literally enthralled the crowd of a sould-out LIVE MUSIC CLUB in Milan.
The long trip started with a classic of SCORPIONS, HOLIDAY, with Michael on vocals, followed by the 1st classic from UFO's era as DOCTOR DOCTOR.
The set was built with 5 songs for every singer, parted with instrumental songs.
Every song was full of surprises, with random other singers used as backing vocalists!
The first set was for amazing DOOGIE WHITE, in our opinion the real heir of RONNIE JAMES DIO, followed by GRAHAM BONNET (70 years..are you sure?!), the lovely GARY BARDEN, and ROBIN McAULEY, physically and vocally, as 30 years ago.
Several songs from UFO times, a couple from SCORPIONS (with enhanced fancy joke for brother RUDOLF..), a lot from MSG and MICHAEL SCHENKER'S TEMPLE OF ROCK, one from McAuley-Schenker Group).
To remind a stunning version of WARRIOR, from last album RESURRECTION, with all members envolved, and 25 mins for incredible versions of two classic UFO as ROCK BOTTOM and LIGHTS OUT.
Lastly to underline the smart contribution of CHRIS GLEN and TED MCKENNA (for me amazing, being an huge fan of THE SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY BAND), and STEVE MANN (also on LIONHEART) on guitar and keyborards.
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER! THANK YOU MICHAEL!!
