The Scorpions “Get your Sting and Blackout World Tour 2010” is not to be missed for it is the Scorpions farewell tour thus ending one of the most enduring and succesful career any hard rock band would dream of. i dont agree with the scorpions retiring. they delivered a high energy affair last night at jones beach theater. drumer James Kottak (formerly of kingdom come) seems to have a huge personality just like his drum riser seems to be rising up to the heavens. mr. kottak eminated so much energy it was hard to contain it. At the floor level Rudolf Schenker was a musical juggernaut if you will showing how to entertain, engaging and acknowledging the fans while at the same time delivering his guitar work to perfection. Vocalist Klaus Meine still commands the stage with his presence and amazing voice. he rocked like nobody’s business and when he sang “wings of change” the house was brought to tears, and a sense of brotherhood that is only reserve for those few songs that can comand such emotions. the show went very well. a lot of the familiar songs a few of the new classics. the lighting and visuals were in top form. i would like to state that, this last tour by the scorpions should not be missed. i was disappointed for the low turnout for this show. jones beach theater holds up to 15,000. thousand fans. only about 8,000 thousands showed up. dont be like the other 7,000 who either could not attend but wanted or just chose to stay home. while i was waiting at the box office i did notice that fans were asking for the “cheapest” tickets available. i know the country is hurting but for 25 dollars you could have seen this show and have a good time. here are a few pics and the only video i could record. enjoy. for more pics go to my Myspace page.
