MSG to perform in the UK & Ireland w/ Night Demon in late 2023 as part of Michael Schenker’s ongoing 50th anniversary “Universal” World Tour

As wide-spanning as the range of musicians contributing to the record, MSG‘s 2022 success studio album “Universal” (released on May 27, 2022 via Atomic Fire) has paved the way for the band and Michael Schenker‘s 50th anniversary world tour to many stages and areas around the globe: Starting with a headlining run across mainland Europe to EU/UK summer festivals, an extensive North American tour as well as Japanese shows, the quintet led by guitar maestro Schenker continues to amaze fans worldwide. Now the time has come for MSG to properly re-visit the shores of the United Kingdom and Ireland for the first time after a pandemic-related break: Taking place from November 23 until December 2, the run will see the band perform a set list full of hits out of Michael Schenker‘s illustrous career in 8 cities. But that’s not all: Not really “Outsider[s]” (as the title of their new record, which was unleashed on March 17 of this year, may let one think) but US based,Metal Hammer (DE) awarded (“Up & Coming” in 2017) squad NIGHT DEMON, who have consistently been discussed since the release of their self-titled 2012 debut EP and secured a prominent spot in the scene, have been confirmed as very special guests to MSG for all dates (incl. both festival appearances of the trek).
