Scorpions will not be part of the Def Leppard tour in Melbourne tonight.
A statement from Scorpions Klaus Meine says, “We came a long way to finally Rock Australia for the very first time (except for Melbourne)… Together with our Friends Def Leppard we have had a fantastic Run so far and it breaks my Heart to let you Know that I can’t sing tonight at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne… The Doc has recommended that I rest my Voice until Sydney and I Cross my Fingers that it all works out”.
Klaus has until Saturday to get better for Sydney. The final show on this leg of the tour is in Auckland, New Zealand on Monday 12 November.
This is the first Australian tour ever for Scorpions although they did play their one and only show in Melbourne in 2017 in anticipation of this tour.
Def Leppard are performing their Hysteria album in full on the tour.
