One of rock n’ roll’s most venerated guitar gods, ULI JON ROTH, will release a very special live performance from the Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo, Japan on December 16, 2016 via UDR Music, entitled Tokyo Tapes Revisited – Live In Japan. The performance is a celebration of Roth’s classic work with the Scorpions, and was recorded on February 20, 2015 at the same venue as the band’s classic 1978 live album Tokyo Tapes.
Roth was a founding member of the Scorpions in 1973 before leaving to pursue a solo career in 1978 with his own Electric Sun. As the recognized creative heartbeat of the Scorpions, Roth achieved worldwide fame for his unique guitar and song-writing talents, in turn causing him to influence a plethora of modern guitar giants such as Kirk Hammett of Metallica, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins and Steve Vai.
