Fan Reviews
“What a blistering, incredible and energetic concert the Scorpions put on tonight. Wailing guitar riffs and solos, thundering rhythms, and of course Klaus Meine's signature, crystal clear, high tenor voice soaring across the arena…Tonight the teenage boy in me returned for one last concert with my favorite band ever.”

“The Scorps sounded AWESOME and the energy was AWESOME. They were having so much fun on stage and it showed…They were very interactive with their fans by throwing guitar picks and drumsticks whenever they had the chance!”

“This band still sounds amazing, and their body of work is awesome…They put on a great show as always and I would love to see them again!”
