Surely because local promoters don't pay a lot
this is the truth, sad but true! BTW the new album of Europe sucks!
So that's the truth?... dammit... oh, wait! Paul McCartney came here and so did (do and will do) other great artists. $corpion$ seem to care more about money than anything else. Songs like "Coming Home" or "Blood to Hot" are meaningless now, or so it seems. It's ok anyway, a man earns his money I guess. This is not a rant, it's "sad but true". Think about this:
Scorpions fan + World tour + Check the tourdate + your country is skipped = Fans are angry (and THIS sucks).
I get your point, Megadeth, Cranberries and Slash are comming for pennies! Hooray!
Seriously, are you joking? If local promoters were so lame there would be no shows at all because the bands that are comming here are not desperate for attention or media diffusion. I don't believe a Scorpions show would end up being so expensive that they decide to skip us, it might be because they fear they can't fill up a whole stadium and that hurts... straight uppercut to the ego I guess.
Some news: They absolutely would! Uruguay might not be known for having great shows over the years but the artists that dare to come are rewarded with sold outs and they end up delighted with a beautiful country full of enthusiasts and wish to come back.
Oh, and before I forget. About Europe, don't think that saying such things about the new album gives your comment any importance. To me it makes no difference. It all boils down to musical interests that you don't share. What do you listen to? I bet I can find a couple of things I don't like and I'm not going to start flaming in a forum for free
