Just got back home. This was my first ever Scorpions concert and it was great. I was supposed to meet Hans and other members of the forum, but unfortunately, that didn't happen due to... circumstances.
I was stationed in Frankfurt during my stay in Germany. Originally, on July 16th, I was supposed to go to the Frankfurt Airport to be picked up by Hans and go with him to Schweinfurt, but had a change of plans. I got a car in Frankfurt because I had to get back to Frankfurt from Schweinfurt after the concert ended. Anyway, I left Frankfurt at around 13:00 and arrived in Schweinfurt around 15:30. I drove around Schweinfurt for a while and then found a parking spot nearby the stadium. I entered the stadium at around 17:00. I should also mention that I did a very stupid thing -- I didn't bring my mobile phone. When I arrived back to my hotel in Frankfurt at around 1:00 I saw a message from Hans (which he sent around 15:00) telling me where the forum group is. If I had brought my phone I could've met everyone, but... Ah, it wasn't meant to be. I'd just like to thank Hans publicly for his help. Anyway, I walked through the stadium, had a doner and a drink and then found a cool spot in the pit. It was a long wait until Edguy came out (around 2 hours). The Edguy part of the show was great. I didn't really hear any songs from Edguy before (but have heard a lot of Avantasia stuff that Tobias did). I speak some German, so I understood the jokes and everything. Since this was my first Scorpions concert (and maybe my first concert of a band; been to concerts of solo performers in the past), I thought the stage that Edguy was performing on was the stage that the Scorpions are going to perform on. I was kind of disappointed, because it looked generic and worn out. But fortunately, when the Edguy concert finished, they began to dismantle their gear and bring in the Scorpions equipment. Needless to say, I was very happy with the stage and the effects (especially the fire, heh).
I knew the setlist before the concert started, and thought it was great. But, to tell you the truth, I didn't enjoy the songs in the first half of the concert. I'm not a fan of songs like "Make it real" or "Tease me please me". I am not a fan of "Sting in the tail" which opened the concert (although it was bearable due to great effects on the stage). Honestly, I started to really enjoy myself when I heard the opening riff to "Blackout". Everything after that was amazing. Before that, it was okay. Don't get me wrong... it was great; I just thought the setlist would be a bit different. But there's nothing we can do about that.
I didn't take a lot of photos (just a few), but I recorded a lot of video while I was at the concert. I recorded some songs in full, and some only partially. I think I'll be able to upload them to YouTube soon.
All in all, it was a great experience. What I'd like to do next is see them in a closed environment (not open air). If I collect enough money, I'd like to see them in Paris or Vienna (end of November).
