The Park Theatre is proud to present Uli Jon Roth, lead guitarist of German heavy metal band Scorpions, on his Triple Anniversary World Tour, live on April 6th 2019
a rescheduled show from June 23rd, 2018
For UJR Fans all over the globe 2018 is going to be a very special year, one of many anniversaries:
I) 40-year anniversary of SCORPIONS – TOKYO TAPES !
II) 40-year anniversary of the Birth of ELECTRIC SUN !!
III) 50-year ANNIVERSARY of Uli’s first ever stage performance in 1968 !!!
To celebrate this special anniversary year, ULI JON ROTH is performing a whole series of concerts and tours worldwide with varying programmes.
His two-month TRIPLE ANNIVERSARY NORTH AMERICAN TOUR – starting at the end of May 2018 – will be devoted to performing a complete set of Songs from Uli’s ground breaking ELECTRIC SUN period.
ELECTRIC SUN REBORN will consist of an intense 90-minute set by Uli and his band, complemented by multi-media projections. This is followed by an intermission and a shorter set of the highlights from TOKYO TAPES REVISITED to round off the 3-hour extravaganza.
Uli has not performed the bulk of this music for over 30 years. Although it never enjoyed the overwhelming commercial success of Scorpions, Electric Sun was far more than just a cult band and had a sizeable following on both sides of the Atlantic as well as in Japan. Largely thanks to Uli’s innovative and ground-breaking guitar playing and interesting compositions the band became artistically influential and presented a unique blend, which was sometimes likened to a strange mixture, located somewhere between Beethoven and Hendrix.
