In June 2015, Michael Schenker reunited with his former MSG vocalist Graham Bonnet for the first time since the early 1980s when they toured Japan together with Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock and Graham Bonnet Band. The tour was a huge success. In August 2016, the two rock giants will again tour Japan together, this time as part of an MSG reunion billed as Michael Schenker Fest.
