Michael Schenker Fest's Concert History
In 2016 Michael Schenker formed Michael Schenker Fest: a touring band featuring former Michael Schenker Group vocalists Gary Barden and Graham Bonnet, plus Robin McAuley of the McAuley Schenker Group. Instrumental back-up was provided by former M.S.G. bass player Chris Glen and drummer Ted McKenna, plus guitarist/keyboard player Steve Mann, also of the McAuley Schenker Group. These shows were so rapturously received by audiences across Japan and Europe that it seemed only logical for the protagonists to make new music together.
