Scorpions Recruit Motorhead Star For U.S. Tour


(hennemusic) The Scorpions have recruited Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee to fill-in for James Kottack on their upcoming spring U.S. tour. Kottak is currently on break while he seeks medical attention for undisclosed reasons, according to the band.

"We would like to continue our Return to Forever tour with James, but we have to realize that his health is priority," says singer Klaus Meine. "We wish James a speedy recovery and he will be back to rock with us very soon! We look forward to seeing all our fans next month."

The 12-date run will begin with an appearance at the Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte on May 6 and include a 5-show residency, "Blacked Out In Vegas", at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino where they'll be joined by special guests Queensryche. See the dates here.
