Scorpions Demands Force Festival To Raise Ticket Prices?

(Classic Rock) The organizer of a Finnish rock festival claims that the "diva-esque" demands in the Scorpions' 38-page rider reportedly forced them to almost double ticket prices.

The German outfit are said to have asked bosses at Lahti for five chauffeur-driven limos, porcelain toilets for each member's exclusive use and a larger stage than anything previously built at the site.

In order to fulfill the band's requirements, single-day tickets were hiked to almost double their usual price, causing a fan backlash. Allu Koskinen, boss of the Rockcock Festival, refused to release the full rider document but said: "We don't want to raise prices, even though the pressure is on due to those extra expense. We just have to hope for a great turnout." more on this story
