MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST, Montreal, Quebec, Canada (March 12, 2018)

Postby Guillaume » Tue Mar 13, 2018 1:03 pm

Wow, what a killer show! 2h40 of music, songs from all eras of the band (save for the 90s and 00s) and UFO.
Michael Schenker on fire and happy to be there, real tight band, all guys having a blast on stage.
Robin McAuley, impressive, the one who kept his voice the most at 65.
Doogie White, full in voice, being the youngest at 58.
Graham Bonnet, still full power, impressive for a 70-year old guy.
Gary Barden, 62, solid, still a nice mid-range, but the weakest of the 4 singers on stage yesterday.

Really happy to have finally seen all these legends live for the very first time. Songs from the new album sounded great live. Commercial songs from the McAuley era sounded a bit heavier and better than on the albums.

That looks like a really cool show. Good to see Schenker back in the game for some years now. Looks like he has things together. Super player. I would love to see this show. I caught MSG only once in my life. Glad you got to see it G.

Schenker was awesome, really into it. Talked to the crowd a few times as well. Really a killer guitarist and one of my faves ever. All the guys seem to get along well, they smile all the time and really seem to enjoy playing and singing together. Really cool. I feel blessed to have attended a kind of historical moment. I don't really recall another old band or artist touring with 4 previous and current singers at the same time.
