Former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth is widely regarded as one of the greatest-ever guitar players. He is one of the last greats who is still around to present his magical style of playing which he already forged in the late 60s when he was still in his teens. Uli played his first ever show in December 1968 - at the age of 13 - and to celebrate his upcoming 50th stage anniversary, he will play 6 very special UK concerts.
The two hour-plus programme will consist of carefully selected highlights from Uli’s entire musical career. In recent times, Uli has successfully revisited the early music of his celebrated Scorpions days which resulted in the superb “Scorpions Revisited” double CD and “Tokyo Tapes Revisited” DVD/Blu-Ray releases. The 50th anniversary set will naturally include the best of that timeless material, including The Sails of Charon, In Trance, Fly to the Rainbow and many other songs.
As a logical continuation of Uli’s journey into his own musical past he will also be reconnecting with the second very important part of his unique musical journey – that of his ground breaking Electric Sun period - during which he took the art of electric guitar playing to a completely new and unprecedented level.
