Scorpions were already committed to a concert in France the night of Live8. There would not have been time for them to do both in one day.
Well, had the band (or rather the management) committed themselves to the cause, and showed their willingness to perform then I saw no reason why, with today's technology that the Berlin organisers couldn't beam LIVE to Paris.
That way they wouldn't need to have postponed the Paris gig in order to perform for Live8.
It wouldn't be the first time this sort of thing had been done, now would it
It just didn't seem right that the biggest rock act ever to come out of Germany (some would say EUROPE!!), were not present on that stage in Berlin
Especially, given the band's stance on World politics etc.
