Wonderful part was that the band actually contacted the promoter/the festival asking to come back to Byblos for more shows here...how great is that! I remember Matthias telling me last October how much they loved the passionate audience here and also the venue (as it is a very special one) and that they would love to come back.
Why is Byblos venue Special?
The venue is actually built over the sea and Byblos is an old city with historical Romanian and Greek ruins (and others) and still has a beautiful old architecture, and an ancient port as the city is by the sea..

in 2011, they arrived from Beirut (from the hotel where they stayed) to Byblos by boat, here's a video I took from the quay...it was a big surprise to the fans...
The Scorpions have already been in Lebanon for 3 times:
- Beirut 1996, stayed here for a whole week, for one show and the shooting of when you came into my life video.
- Byblos July 4,6,7 2011
- Byblos 26,27 July 2013
if anyone of you can make it to these shows, I would be more than glad to help in anything you might need...and i'd be very happy !
