"The concerts will feature Uli and his all-star band as well as include many special guest artists," Uli Jon Roth's (ex-SCORPIONS) production manager Jeff Agins had previously told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "The dates are May 24, May 26 and May 27 at the Freud Theater on the campus of UCLA. This is should be the concert of the year for melodic rock fans. Some of the guests that have shown interest have never played in the States before and will be an excellent opportunity to see this type of music without having to travel to Europe and Japan."
