Klaus Meine, thinks Beijing is an impressive city and looks forward to performing there someday.
The veteran German rocker drew the conclusion on his first visit to the Chinese capital, where he was invited to the foundation-laying ceremony of a Sino-German medical research program on Tuesday.
Klaus Meine told the newspaper that he was impressed by many stunning buildings on his way to the hotel. He was also amazed by the Capital Airport's new Terminal 3.
However, Klaus Meine rued his tight schedule wouldn't allow him time to visit the Forbidden City or the Great Wall.
When his band mates learnt he was coming to Beijing, "they were all jealous," Meine says. "We are all looking forward to playing here someday."
If a Scorpions concert happens in Beijing, Klaus Meine hopes it will be held in a small venue so that the band can get close to their Chinese fans. He also hopes to invite Jackie Chan to the gig because "he is a legendary figure."
