SCORPIONS: Sofia Concert Rescheduled

October 12, 2010

According to, German hard rockers SCORPIONS have set October 25 as the new date for their concert in Sofia, Bulgaria previously scheduled for last Saturday (October 9).

The Saturday show was canceled because SCORPIONS frontman Klaus Meine was reportedly diagnosed with acute laryngitis and the doctors suggested he take a break for a week. A concert in Athens, Greece was also called off.

The farewell tour by the iconic band — Klaus Meine (vocals),Matthias Jabs (lead guitar),Rudolf Schenker (guitar),James Kottak (drums) and Pawel Maciwoda (bass) — is in support of their latest album, "Sting In The Tail" (Universal Music Enterprises). It entered the U.S. chart at No. 23, marking the band's highest chart debut in over 20 years.

The SCORPIONS' tour — in celebration of 40-plus years in music— has been a massive success in a soft touring economy, with the group filling many of the arenas they performed at in the United States and Canada.

In a recent interview with Billboard's Ray Waddell, Meine said, "What can I say? It's a celebration… We feel we owe it to our fans and ourselves to keep this energy level. What we pull off every night on this tour, we want to keep it that way to the very last show. We don't want to see ourselves rocking like a hurricane when it's not a hurricane anymore."
