German guitarist Uli Jon Roth takes a trip 38 years back in time...
One of rock n’roll’s most venerated guitar Gods, Uli Jon Roth, will be releasing Tokyo Tapes Revisited – Live In Japan, a very special live performance from the Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo, Japan on December 16 via UDR Music.
The performance is a celebration of Roth’s classic work with The Scorpions, and was recorded on February 20th 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.
Tokyo Tapes Revisited – Live In Japan will be released in four different formats.
Format 1 – BluRay Digipak:
Video & audio recording of Roth’s Tokyo concert in a BluRay digipak containing one BluRay video disc and two audio CDs.
Format 2 – DVD Digipak:

Format 4 – Super-Deluxe Box set, limited to 800 copies:
