ULI JON ROTH To Perform With SCORPIONS For First Time In 27 Years

July 5, 2005

The following message has been posted on legendary guitarist Uli Jon Roth's (ex-SCORPIONS) official web site:

"The American tour and Sky Academy have been put back until the beginning of 2006. Uli Jon Roth will first play some shows in Europe instead.

"The first of these is going to be in Colmar, France (September 10) at an open-air arena, where Uli is going to be on the same bill as his former band, SCORPIONS, and one other group (to be announced). Uli will later join the band during their set and they will perform a couple of SCORPIONS classics together, dating from the period when Uli was still a member of the group.

"This will be a somewhat historic and nostalgic occasion for a lot of fans from the past, who have never had the chance to see Uli with the SCORPIONS, because this is going to be their first joint appearance since the recording of 'Tokyo Tapes' in 1978.

"On the following day, Uli Jon Roth will headline the Guitarfest 2005 in Birmingham, England. The venue is still to be announced.
