...if someone don`t have anything to travel by, you can join us. We`re 2, and we have 5 more places. We`ll probably travel all night long (Friday) to Bucharest and leave the town in the very morning.
We`re not quite sure if we will be back from the same road or we`ll chose the shortest way - from Serbia, but.. al least someone can save money and travel free with us from Bucharest to Cluj

Scorpions bring the backline and the video wall and part of the set like the flying drum riser etc.
As far I have heard from the local promoter there will be the same stage like it was used in Bucharest this summer but its quite possible there will be a stage extension into the audience like we had it at the last show in Donezk. Will kow more about it tomorrow when I´ll be at the arena
Scorpions Truck wrote:Promoters get a list of the needed PA and lites from the Scorpions production manager, The light show is programmed according to the set list of every show on the computer of the Scorpions Lighting director, so he just uploads his programming to the lite show console, The design of the lite show is always the same, it´s specially designed for this tour. Similar it is for the PA and the monitor system.Each "department" got it´s own programming and uploads it to the local equipment. This might seem to be quite complex but at the very end it is much more efficient.
The set lists vary sometimes but mostly it´s about the same songs following the choice of the band for the Get Your Sting and Blackout Tour. Just the video system is provided by the Scorpions, it travels all time with the backline. There are two complete Backline/Vidoe systems in use, this enables the Scorpions to play two shows within two days even when there´s a huge distances to travel. In this case one truck carries equipment for venue A whilst another truck is already at Venue B for the next show maybe 2000 miles away from Venue A.
Band and crew fly ovenite from A to B and setup the next show within a few hours. PA and lites are always rented so when there are some days off like we have it right now between Donezk and Cluj there are no rental costs for those off days. Some other bands plan their tours for two or three months in a year and play five or six shows a week; than it makes sense to have all equipment on the road during the tour.
A band like the Scorpions is touring continuously over the year with breaks in between, so this way avoids costs for everybody, last not least for the fans as well otherwise the ticket prices would be even higher than they are right now
