ULI JON ROTH Set For U.S., Canada 50th Stage Anniversary Tour

Kicking Off March 20th

Uli Jon Roth is widely regarded as one of the greatest guitar players ever. He is one of the last greats who is still around to present his magical style of playing which he already forged in the late Sixties when he was still in his teens. Uli played his first ever show in December 1968 - at the age of 13 - and to celebrate his upcoming 50th Stage Anniversary, he will perform concerts across North America this spring.

The two hour-plus programme will consist of carefully selected highlights from Uli’s entire musical career, which - by now - is spanning no less than 5 decades! The amazing thing is that Uli Jon Roth keeps on getting better, as we have seen amply demonstrated by his astonishing and powerful recent appearances at the G3 Tour of Europe and the UK with Joe Satriani and John Petrucci.

In recent times, Uli has successfully revisited the early music of his celebrated SCORPIONS days which resulted in the superb Scorpions Revisited double CD and Tokyo Tapes Revisited DVD/Blu-Ray releases.

The 50th Anniversary set will naturally include the best of that timeless material, including "The Sails of Charon", "In Trance", "Fly To The Rainbow" and many other songs.

As a logical continuation of Uli’s journey into his own musical past he will also be reconnecting with the second very important part of his unique musical journey – that of his ground breaking ELECTRIC SUN period - during which he took the art of electric guitar playing to a completely new and unprecedented level. In those early days, Uli was already forging the path and laying the ground work for later virtuosos such as Malmsteen, Eddie Van Halen, Vai, Satriani, Jason Becker and a generation of younger players who came after him, with his novel use of highly melodic, classically inspired arpeggios and scales.

Virtually singlehandedly, Uli pioneered a unique style of guitar playing which – for the first time in the history of the electric guitar – combined complete technical mastery of the instrument with an intensely melodic and emotional appeal.

Thanks to Uli’s innovative and ground-breaking guitar playing and interesting compositions, ELECTRIC SUN became artistically influential and presented a unique blend, which was sometimes likened to a strange mixture, located somewhere between Beethoven and Hendrix. Back then, ELECTRIC SUN had many fans in the UK and on both sides of the Atlantic, but Uli decided to move on, and the year 1985 saw the end of ELECTRIC SUN as a band concept. It has been more than 30 years since Uli performed the music of ELECTRIC SUN in the UK in an unforgettable series of shows which included Hammersmith Odeon, Manchester Apollo and Newcastle City Hall. After all these years, Uli has now taken a fresh look at this unique material, drawn from the altogether three ELECTRIC SUN albums: Earthquake, Fire Wind and Beyond the Astral Skies.

Uli is reconnecting with his ELECTRIC SUN music after all this time and will bring that music to life in the here and now. ELECTRIC SUN and Uli fans alike will be delighted to finally hear these songs played live again by the master himself. Don’t miss this chance to witness an important part of rock history!

Uli’s voice is his legendary Sky Guitar which is his own invention, and which surpasses all current guitars on the market in terms of range and versatility. It is this instrument which allows him to play with a nigh-on six-octave range. Due to their ingenious design, Sky Guitars are the only guitars which make it possible to play Vivaldi’s celebrated violin concerto “The Four Seasons” at concert pitch, but with the sound of an electric guitar. Uli has recently founded his own personal company designed to produce these guitars exclusively – UJR SKY-GUITARS - and he will play a range of his new guitars during these shows.

Uli has launched the official UJR SKY-GUITARS website, featuring a range of new Sky Guitars built for discerning guitarists and collectors.. The guitars come in three ranges - Pegasus, Aquila and Unicorn Sky Guitars.
