If you consider yourself to be a heavy metal fan then the name Michael Schenker should need no introduction. With an incredible fifty-year career in music and a new album, Immortal which dropped just over nine months ago, the heavy metal icon hit the road for a short run of dates in celebration of reaching this stunning milestone.

Joining Schenker on the run which saw him travel back through fifty years of music for a career-spanning set, the German guitar legend was joined on the UK run by fellow heavy metal icon Doro. Photographer John Hayhurst was on hand in Leeds to bring back this brilliant gallery of images from this glorious night of heavy metal.

Spanning fifty years, there was plenty to pack into a set and, whichever era of Schenker you were a fan of, whether it be his time in UFO, his time in German rock stars Scorpions, or his own solo work, there was no way a true Schenker fan could leave disappointed. Check out the setlist below.
