It’s one thing to be able to shred on electric guitar. It’s another thing to elevate shredding to a true art form.

German guitarist Uli Jon Roth has done just that, crafting majestic sonic galaxies over the course of a catalog that spans 40-plus years. He rose to fame as the Scorpions' lead guitarist and has since become revered as a pioneer of neoclassical metal.

Lucky for those with a taste for fretboard fury, Roth is coming to San Antonio for a show at the Tobin Center on Friday, May 8.

Tickets ($34.50-$64.50) are on sale now.
