NEW LIVE RECORDING AND FILMED CONCERT RELEASED BY INAKUSTIK ON CD, DVD, BLU-RAY AND DIGITAL
In November 2015 as part of Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock 2015 European tour — “On A Mission: Live In Madrid” SCHENKER and his fabulous touring band turned Madrid’s magical Joy Eslava Theatre, close to the grand Royal Palace, into a Temple of Rock.
The carefully filmed and conscientiously recorded show featured live performances of their recent rock radio hits including Vigilante Man, Communion and Live and Let Live, as well as the MSG/UFO/Scorpions classics such as Doctor Doctor, Lights Out, Too Hot To Handle, Rock You Like A Hurricane and Rock Bottom.
The set truly began with Doctor Doctor from the UFO era, with that eloquent baroque intro. This is the musical equivalent of settling back into a hot tub and relaxing. And then the exhilarating fizz begins. Soon the song becomes an intoxicating froth.
Maximum enthusiasm, by both band and crowd, was kept up through the whole show, turning it into a exceptional & memorable event. Other stand-out moments included the celebrated riffage of “Lovedrive” and the bonded excitement of “Blackout” (Scorpions.)
Flying V classics don’t come edgier or more melodically intense than “Lights Out” or with the unrivalled yet controlled speed of “Rock Bottom” (UFO.)
Songs from the last three Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock albums also made it into this extravagant and impressve event.
The concert was recorded using state-of-the-art sound and video technology. 4K technology cameras provide perfect, crystal clear pictures. Additional room microphones were placed at different levels in the auditorium, all of which will provide an additional Dolby Atmos 3D mix on the Blu-ray edition.
