SCORPIONS – For The First Time Ever In Australia! One Show Only

German heavy rock icons, SCORPIONS, will be bringing their 50th Anniversary Tour to Melbourne for their first-ever Australian show.

In 1988, the Hanoverian pioneers were the first Western rock band to play five consecutive sold-out shows in then Soviet Leningrad. Returning the following year to play the Moscow Music Peace festival, Scorpions ultimately conquered Russia, inspiring frontman Klaus Meine to write the track that became a theme song to the Iron Curtain’s final fall: ‘Wind of Change’.

Travelling to Australia for the first time in the 50-year history of the band, Scorpions, comprising Klaus Meine (vocals), Rudolf Schenker (guitar), Matthias Jabs (guitar), Mikkey Dee (drums) & Pawel Maciwoda (bass), will play their debut Australian show at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Tuesday October 18.
