First I have to say the Scorpians are by far the greatest ROCK band of all time! Studio or live, their energy, harmonies, lyrics, and talent are unmatched! They do not fall into any sub-genre of rock music line heavy metal or "hair-band". They are a unique ROCK GENRE themselves! I am very disappointed that they will not be visting the Twin Cities this tour, at least not yet announced! I was very fortunate to see them during their Humanity Tour at a relatively small venue, the Myth Nightclub in Aug. 2008, one of only 7 US venues, I believe, in that leg of the tour! INCREDIBLE to be that close! They STILL sounded great and are the best live performance I've seen ... and I've seen many! Last time I saw them before that was in 1988 Monsters of Rock festival in the Metrodome! Even back then, they blew away Van Halen, Dokken and Metallica (in their infancy). Scorpions RULE!
