Scorpions Forced To Cancel Tour For Medical Reasons

(Classic Rock) Scorpions have cancelled four German tour dates after Klaus Meine was given doctor's orders to rest. The vocalist called a halt to the band's show in Hamburg on Monday after 30 minutes, complaining of a sore throat.

After being assessed by a doctor and diagnosed with an advanced viral infection and larynx and trachea inflammation, gigs in Cologne, Leipzig, Frankfurt and Berlin have been pulled.

Scorpions have vowed to announce rescheduled dates for the gigs, including the Hamburg show, in the coming days. Meine says: "Sorry to all our fans. Thanks for your understanding. Hope we can make up for the concerts soon."

In a further statement, the band says: "On Monday evening, March 21, Klaus Meine had to break off the fifth of the nine German concerts in Hamburg Barclaycard Arena after just 30 minutes. The band will definitely make up this concert. The tickets for this concert remain valid for the new date." Read more here.
