Scorpions Resume Tour Following Klaus Meine Surgery
(hennemusic) The Scorpions resumed their Australian tour with a February 26 show in Sydney that was rescheduled from last week after singer Klaus Meine underwent emergency kidney stone surgery in a Melbourne hospital.
The German rockers previously had to cancel a Sydney appearance in 2018 while on the road supporting Def Leppard, and the frontman apologized to the fans at the Qudos Bank Arena for both events.
"It feels really good to be back in Sydney tonight," said Meine. "It feels really good to be out on stage here tonight. First, I want to say sorry for 2018, you know, and sorry for last Saturday. What a mess with this kidney stone that really knocked me out in Melbourne, and I feel so good to be back on my feet tonight."
On the road with Whitesnake, Meine's health issue forced the cancellation of a February 24 concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane and the tour's February 27 stop at the Spark Arena in Auckland, NZ. Watch some videos from the show including the comments from Klaus here.
