German guitar legend ULI JON ROTH will be returning to North America for a special tour commemorating his 40th anniversary of joining the SCORPIONS. Uli plans on celebrating this anniversary with a one of a kind show that features an entire set of Scorpions material as well as selections from his extensive solo catalog. Every show on the tour will be recorded for a live album documenting this amazing milestone in his career.

The tour is currently scheduled to kick off January 25th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through March 3rd in Los Angeles. More dates will be added in the coming days.

Uli is looking forward to presenting this historical show to his North American fans: "Celebrating my 40th anniversary of joining the band, we will play a full set of Scorpions songs alongside my more recent material. We will feature several songs from each of the albums that I played on, including some, which have not been played live before. I'm really looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!"

In addition to his 40th Anniversary shows, Uli will also be offering his world renowned Sky Academy Seminars while he is on the road in North America. These introductory seminars are not just aimed at guitarists, but fans and even non-musicians may well find plenty to gain from Uli's unique way of talking about some of the deeper mysteries of music. For some people Sky Academy has even been a life-changing experience, because Uli's teaching can open up completely new ways of experiencing music.

The aim of Sky Academy is to provide knowledge and inspiration to those who take guitar playing seriously and to help them reach a new plateau. The seminars are designed to open musicians' eyes to new possibilities and to trigger an awakening of the student's full potential and talent. Special emphasis is given to inspirational concepts rather than just technical means. Sky Academy is designed to teach particularly those things which are not normally touched upon in music teaching, but which provide a true gateway to mastery.

Tickets for the introductory seminars are available through the individual venues and can also be purchased here.
