マイケル・シェンカーの「TEMPLE OF ROCK」ワールドツアーより、最新の映像が嬉しいギフト・タイトルで登場です。10月3日からスタートしたアメリカツアーの2ndレグより5公演目に当たるカリフォルニア州ロマーナ公演を、客席最前列から最高の迫力で完全収録した、ファン必見の一本です。

M.S.G.とは異なるソロ作品となった「TEMPLE OF ROCK」でのライヴは、様々なゲストが参加したアルバム同様に、参加メンバーやライヴでの選曲も多彩なものとなりました。2月に行われたアメリカツアーの1stレグではヴォーカルにロビン・マッコーリーが参加し、「Save Yourself」を取り上げて”マッコーリー・シェンカー・グループ”時代を想起させたかと思えば、3月の来日公演ではアルバムでメイン・ヴォーカルだったマイケル・ヴォスや、元SCORPIONSのハーマン・ラレベルがメンバーに迎えられました。またドゥギー・ホワイトがフロントを務めた4月以降のヨーロッパツアーでは、ベースにこちらも元SCORPIONSのフランシス・ブッホルツが参加し、ハーマンと約20年ぶりにリズムを組んで、「Lovedrive」や「Blackout」などのSCORPIONSナンバーでファンを感激させました。
こうした工夫からマイケルのライヴはファンの支持を受けて、夏にはアメリカで2度目のツアーが決定します。今回もヴォーカルは当初ロビンで調整が進められましたが、ロビンは病気のため参加が不可能となってしまいました。そこで代役として立てられたのが、「WRITTEN IN THE SAND」発表当時、マイケルの”ストーリー・ライヴ”でシンガーの一人を務めたデイヴィッド・ヴァン・ランディングでした。
本作は10月3日から始まった秋のアメリカツアーから、7日のロマーナ”ロマーナ・メインステージ”でのライヴを、素晴らしいクリアネスを誇るデジタル映像で収録。ロビンの急病は残念ですが、図らずも実現した「TEMPLE OF ROCK」ツアー”第4のシンガー”のパフォーマンスを、迫力たっぷりに満喫できます。

直近のデジタル映像だけに、そのクリアネスは言うまでもなく抜群。さらに本ライヴではほとんど客席最前列からの撮影で、マイケルやデイヴィッド、さらにベースのエリオット・ルビンソンやサイドギターのウェイン・フィンドレイのプレイも、それぞれ素晴らしい迫力で捉えられています(その近さや映像の構図は、定番映像である「TEMPLE OF ROCK IN CALIFORNIA」にも匹敵します)。
ライヴは序盤の「Lovedrive」・「Another Piece Of Meat」のSCORPIONSナンバー、「Save Yourself」から「Rock My Nights Away」に至るM.S.G.パート(新曲の「Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead」を含む)、中盤以降の怒涛のようなUFOパートと、演奏曲が場面ごとに区切られたような構成。それぞれの場面でマイケルの魅力を凝縮した、優れた演奏と楽曲を楽しめます。マイケルは演奏中もにこやかな笑みを浮かべる場面が多く、オープニングから上機嫌な様子。「Into The Arena」や「Rock My Nights Away」でもキレのあるギターを聴かせてくれます。メロディアスで官能的なトーンを紡ぐ「Love To Love」、キャッチーな「Natural Thing」、問答無用の「Rock Bottom」と、UFOナンバーでも、冴え渡るギターは留まるところを知りません! デイヴィッドも伸びやかでパワーのあるヴォーカルを聴かせ、M.S.G.の曲、UFOナンバーともしっかり歌いこなしています。この器用さに、「STORY LIVE」でのパフォーマンスを思い出す人も多いのではないでしょうか。

「TEMPLE OF ROCK」ツアーからは前述したように、アメリカツアー1stレッグの模様を収めた「TEMPLE OF ROCK IN CALIFORNIA」・「SAVE THEMSELVES」といった大定番映像が存在し、音源でも来日公演の「TEMPLE OF THE GOD」や、ヨーロッパツアーの「BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS」などが知られます。本作はそれらと並んで、マイケルの2012年ライヴを克明に捉えた一本です。本格的なツアー共演では15年ぶりとなったデイヴィッド・ヴァン・ランディングのパフォーマンスと共に、ファンは絶対に見逃せないライヴ。オリジナル・メニュー付き,91分間の同日映像決定版を、この期間限定のチャンスに是非ゲットしてください!
