Michael Schenker Group, Millenium Music Hall, Cardiff 270510

I'm not sure if wonderful German guitar hero Michael Schenker has too many Welsh connections, but it was great to see him and the MSG back in South Wales for the 2nd time in 12 months. And yet again we weren't disappointed with a stunning display of great songs and wonderful axe work.
Happily reunited with Gary Barden and Chris Glen, the new, more sober Schenker is a class act once again, and delighted the 500 strong crowd with a super mix of classics, a few off 'In The Midst Of Beauty" and of course several UFO staples.

Michael Schenker (sober and brillaint)

Gary Barden (looking as though he's really enjoying it)

For the record, the set list was something like:
Armed & Ready
Cry For The Nations
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
Ready To Rock
I Want You
Night To Remember
Into The Arena
Lost Horizons
Rock My Nights Away
On And On (you tube)
Attack Of The Mad Axeman (you tube)
Lights Out
Ride On My Way
Rock Bottom
Doctor Doctor
