Do we actually need to write more? Really? Honestly? OK.

On one of the gigs of their tour stops in Germany on the European leg of the ‘Rock Believer World Tour 2022/2023’ the mighty SCORPIONS came to Stuttgart. As always on this tour, THUNDERMOTHER were opening the stage as support act. This energy and power-loaded all-women rock’n’roll band is definitely part of Sweden’s finest rock bands at current times. As usual and as always the crowd got into the mood perfectly with a simple, clear, and straight rock gig. The new line-up doesn’t stand back behind former performances, even though Linnea Vickström‘s voice is different and gives vocals and songs a new timbre. The power you can see on stage is still the same.

Once the audience was heated up, it was time for the one and only SCORPIONS.

Even after 50 plus years, this band is able to present a top-notch show and sets the bar extremely high for other bands. In Germany we would say ‘Die Scorpions haben den Newcomern gezeigt, wo der Frosch die Locken hat!’ – and no, there is no real good translation available for this. Yes, these guys may have a little less stage action than in the past, but the stage, light, and sound is almost unbeatable. Presenting a mix of songs of five decades of band history, including four songs from their latest long-player ‘Rock Believer’ they controlled the almost sold out venue totally. Massive LED panels in the back, playing song specific animations and graphics and a curtain of lights surrounding the stage just like in the 70s and 80s are so much fun to watch. The songs definitely haven’t lost any of their attraction and sometimes get a little tweak to match the current events in the worlds – e.g. giving ‘Winds of Change’ a text referral to the war in Ukraine. Klaus Meine is giving away generously souvenirs on stage – he is tossing a huge amount SCORPIONS branded drumsticks into the audience. When closing the show with two encores ‘Still Loving You’ and ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ the massive Vegas-style show came to end and left a happy crowd. Overall, this performance is and was a must-see.
