Win To See Michael Schenker @ B.B. King’s On 1/22/2014

Poster - Michael Schenker at BB Kings - 2014

The Details: There are probably few names that come up as an influencer to Hard Rock and Heavy Metal guitarists than that of the great Michael Schenker; Now if are one of those who play the instrument and his name escapes you, then I would like to thank you for finding our site accidently because clearly that would never be the case if you have read our site at all over the years. That said it’s always great to find Michael and his fantastic band hitting our city and this year he is bringing along Doogie White as his vocalist and promoting the brand new album called “Bridge The Gap”. Thanks to the fine folks at the B. B. King Blues Club & Grill, PiercingMetal is honored to be holding this contest for our readers. This is actually our first giveaway for the New Year 2014 after a super successful series of offerings in 2013.

When and Where: Wednesday January 22nd @ B.B. King Blues Club (237 W42nd St. NYC)

To Participate: Shredders and non-shredders alike let me know what this man and his music mean to you as a fan (or a musician) and give me a few reasons for this being the case. Perhaps he inspired your band or perhaps you have followed him on tour for years. Just make it interesting because with this being the first contest in 2014 I want to be sure you’re paying attention. I will be picking some of the submissions as a winner for a ticket for the show and replying directly below their comment. Be sure to enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address in case we need to reach you about the show. Do NOT place this information in the comment itself as it will not be approved (privacy concerns and all). It never hurts to subscribe to comments for the duration of the contest for good measure. Let me have it…..

Restrictions: As it was in the beginning, all of the PiercingMetal contests are open to our loyal readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers but that being said we are still looking for the new names first.

  1. The year was 1982. I saw UFO’s videos for “Back Into My Life” & “Let It Rain” on MTV. I immediately bought the Mechanix LP. I told a friend in school who had UFO written all over his notebooks(which was rare for an 11 year old). He immediately told me that this was not the “real” UFO & taped me the Obsession & Force It LPs. I was hooked. I bought the first 3 MSG records after that. Schenker’s guitar spoke to me. He plays with feeling, such finesse….it’s hard to put into words. He’s my absolute favorite living guitar player. My dream came true when Schenker rejoined UFO in 1996. That show at the Limelight Labor Day weekend was one of the greatest shows ever!! I love how he mixes up UFO & MSG songs in his modern live repertoire. 30 years later i am still in awe of this legend.

    1. Congratulations Philip, you are getting a ticket to see Michael Schenker at B.B. King’s on Wednesday. Please watch the comments for the full details from me on how you claim it that evening.

  2. Michael Schenker comes from a great breed of guitarists, brother to Rudolf Schenker (of Scorpions fame), he is a legend unto his own. I’ve seen him play once in a concert and I was blown away by his skills. He says it doesn’t matter how many strings are on the guitar, but how you play them. He recently turned 59 years old, but still feels like he is 18 as he confessed in a recent radio interview. If you’re into electric guitar playing, he is one artist not to be missed. I hope I get to see him live again.

  3. Michael Schenker is definitly one of my biggest influences! I would love to see him Rock the nite at B.B. Kings. Im glad i had a chance to see the original UFO at Limelight, NYC – i believe it was 95/96. Too bad he’s not with UFO anymore but thank god he’s still touring cause he Kicksass. Love all of his work especially U.F.O. and the early Scorpions records (lonesome crow is a masterpiece)

  4. I’ve only had the pleasure of seeing MSG once at Gramercy Theatre, and it was awesome hearing classic UFO material. I feel Schenker is a name often ignored when taking about elite guitarists. Schenker is definitely high on my list along with Ace Frehley, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc. I would definitely be honored to see him shred again at BB Kings.

  5. Had on my iPod on shuffle. First “Save Yourself” popped up. Then up came “Love to Love You” from “Strangers in the Night.”. This made me put on The “Schenker shuffle.”. I was just reminded of how much legendary work Michael has put out. Yeah, I gotta see him again.

    1. Well Tom if the genius creation of Steve Jobs is putting this music into your brain I have to give a ticket to you for the show. Congrats and please stay tuned to the comments for the full details on how you claim it that night.

  6. My husband Raves about this guy. He has brought me to a lot of shows that I have loved such as Iron Maiden, KISS, Manowar and the Scorpions, so I figure he is likely right about this show. I want to see what all the hub bub is about.

    1. There is no hub bub but there is greatness. Congrats Claudia you are taking the last ticket for the Schenker show on Wednesday. Please stay tuned for the details on how you claim it on the night of the show.

  7. Okay my friends, that about does it for our Michael Schenker Group contest which is officially closed as of now. On the night of the show go to the venue podium and ask for the House List, your name will be under there as a winner of our contest. You don’t get physical tickets to enter as your name is checked and you enter so bring ID since you will need it. Should you encounter any difficulty please ask for an onsite manager and reference this contest was done in conjunction with their marketing team. Let’s Rock!
