ULI JON ROTH TEAMS UP WITH SILVER LINING MUSIC TO RELEASE TOKYO TAPES REVISTED - LIVE IN JAPAN
One of rock ‘n’ roll’s most venerated guitar Gods, Uli Jon Roth, will be releasing a very special live performance from the Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo, Japan on December 16th 2016 through Silver Lining Music, titled Tokyo Tapes Revisited - Live In Japan. The performance is a celebration of Roth’s classic work with The Scorpions, and was recorded on February 20th 2015 at the same venue as the band’s classic 1978 live album Tokyo Tapes. Roth was a founding member of The Scorpions in 1973 before leaving to pursue a solo career in 1978 with his own Electric Sun. As the recognized creative heartbeat of The Scorpions, Roth achieved worldwide fame for his unique guitar and song-writing talents, in turn causing him to influence a plethora of modern guitar giants such as Kirk Hammett of Metallica, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins and Steve Vai.
Tokyo Tapes Revisited - Live In Japan will be released in four different formats.
- Product 1 - BluRay Digipak:
Video & audio recording of Roth’s Tokyo concert in a BluRay digipak containing one BluRay video disc and two audio CDs.
