Michael Schenker Fest – Cabooze – Minneapolis MN – March 19th 2018

Michael Schenker Fest invades the Cabooze in Minneapolis Minnesota.

When this tour was announced we all thought for sure, road trip.

Not this time around. Beyond excited for an all-star line up staring Michael Schenker.

Opening the show tonight was the one and only Flipp.

Formed in the late 90’s for a few years and then breaking up, they have gotten back together to keep rock n roll strong and well in Minneapolis.

A mix of Kiss, New York Dolls, Iggy Pop and T. Rex, they are awesome.

Check them out here.

I don’t think I have ever seen a band bring back 4 lead singers to all share the stage and celebrate a career. Well Michael has done it.

Now we all know how iconic Michael is. So let’s talk about the show.

The band is amazing and Gary Barden opened up the set singing. Graham was the next up and man, hey still has it!!!

Robin Mcauly came in mid set and did 4 of his hits. Have never seen Anytime live and well worth the wait.

Doogie White came out as the last singer. But the cool part it throughout the night they all backed each other up.

Now we all know Michael is an icon and could talk about how awesome his guitar playing is but the singers also made this evening incredible.

Now here is where I usually put up a setlist but all I am gonna say is they did 32 songs and it covered UFO – Scorpions and all solo years.

You are just gonna have to go see it!!! Oh and bring earplugs.
