Hi fans, Geneva is done and we had a great show there. At least for me it wasn´t surprising cuz the 9000 people in the Geneva Arena pushed the band all the time. Also the circumstances for the sCREWpions have been excellent, Catering was delicious, the local security did a brilliant job and the stage hands were working their arses off with a lot of idealism and fun in the work they did. All those people have been booked by the local promoter so here´s a big THANKS to the entire Geneva team,
Scorpions Truck doors were closed around 02:30h this morning and now I am on my way to Paris - can´t wait to reach this desasterous traffic when entering downtown Monday afternoon
@Gabi; I am now continuoulsy trucking for the Scorpions since 5 years and in this time I missed round about 6 or 7 shows in Europe. I do not do trucking on the oversea shows, here the equipment is transported by plane or by sea containers and then locally transported by trucks from the country the band is playing.
When I am not touring with the Scorpions I do tours with different other bands all over Europe. I´ve done nearly all genres of music tours for example I was on tour with Mike Oldfield, Toto, Depeche Mode, George Michael, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Dream Theatre, Barbra Streisand, Whitesnake, Radio Head, Earth Wind & Fire, Bryan Adams, BAP, Cirque du Soleil.... just to name a few of the big tours as well there have been club tours with Ministry, Willie Nelson, Floggin´ Molly, Gregorian, various tours with the Buena Vista Social Club from Cuba and also countless Musical tours with shows like We will Rock You, Grease, Evita, Cats, Beauty and the Beast, West Side Story, Dancing performances like Swanlake on Ice, The Alvyn Ailey American Dance Theatre or even classic concert tours with symphonic orchestras.
At the moment the plan is after the Scorpions Tour is finished for this year end of november I will go to Italy with an Argentinian Tango Show named Tánguera for a couple of gigs and then go home for X-Mas. Hopefully January 2012 will be off for me to have some holidays before back on th road again in February ´til March with Rammstein. April 2012 is again with the Scorpions, no clue which countries and cities will be booked further on. At least I´m quite hopeful there´s gonna be a lot more European shows next year, there are enough places the band didn´t play yet on the current tour.
At least there´s one little thing I´d like to mention: I received countless requests by personal messages on this forum as well through my facebook account about showdates. I am not willing and I am not authorized to take part in discussions or speculations about non confrimed upcoming shows of the Scorpions in future. I don´t officially know anything more than You fans around the world about countries the Scorpions are playing or not. It´s not my job spreading rumours so all requests regarding this are hereby automaticaly answered with: I do not have a clue.
