Uli Jon Roth is a pioneer, a visionary, and explorer who has put his 50-year career in the service of art and music. He is one of the most mentioned and most influential rock guitarists of modern times.
2023 is a very special year in the career of Uli with a series of releases and touring planned. The year has already seen BMG reissues of the five seminal the Scorpions albums Uli was a part of – reinforcing the monumental legacy and trailblazing worldwide impact his tenure in that band exerted.
Furthermore, the eagerly anticipated reissue of Electric Sun’s “Earthquake” is set to be released on 29th September 2023 on vinyl and CD. With meticulous attention to detail, the album was lovingly transferred from the original 2-track master tapes at Dierks Studios, the very place where all the iconic Scorpions albums came to life. Through painstaking precision, the sound quality has been restored, capturing and reviving its original vibe for a new generation of listeners. Electric Sun’s “Earthquake” will be distributed globally through Uli’s newly established label, Alpha Experium, with the backing of our distribution partner, Cargo Records.
Uli is renowned for his trade-mark Sky Guitars which he designed himself with their vastly extended tonal range. These instruments are the very pinnacle of design and innovation. Only about 100 of these unique guitars have been built so far and they are highly sought after. More information can be found on https://www.sky-guitars.com/
Just announced is a UK headline tour in November 2023. In addition, there will be several key festival appearances, alongside further European dates (TBA) which is followed by a full U.S. tour in the first half of 2024.
Uli Jon Roth says: “I am really looking forward to playing the UK again after such a long time! It feels great to see that all of my previous releases will now become available again for my existing fans and a whole new generation of audience which we see emerging.”
