SCORPIONS are a German rock band formed in 1965 in Hanover, Germany, with a style that ranges from Hard Rock to Heavy Metal.
On 23 October 2014, singer Meine announced the new record would be published in February or March 2015, to coincide with the band’s 50th anniversary. The new album presented not only newly recorded versions of never-published songs, but also new material, written between 2011 and 2014. Drummer James Kottak, who left the band in May 2014 for rehab, returned to play drums. The new album Return to Forever was released on 20 February 2015.
We found their Rider, regarding their 2015-2016 World Tour. What’s in there?
All day Catering for about 20 persons their whole crew! Taking good care of them, a rich selection of everything!
It is made clear – and mentioned a couple of times – that special care is needed as one of their crew members is Diabetic plus a vegeterian one.
And then we head to the Band Members! They all have their personal Dressing Room and requests!
Singer Klaus Meine would need Diet Soft Drinks and Juices, Water and Rum! Food is not that important as only chocolates and 4 sandwiches are requested! Oh, and Bananas, YELLOW without DOTS Bananas!
Guitarist Rudolf Schenker could use more Alcoholic Drinks, Vodka and of course he wouldn’t change his favorite German Warsteiner Beer! Chocolates, Sandwiches and Fresh Fruits complete his requests – No problem if his Bananas have some dots?
Guitarist Matthias Jabs, has similar requests, however he likes Heineken Beer! And Whisky, a Chivas Regal Scotch one!
James Kottak, their Drummer, doesn’t like Alcohol! Juices, Energy and Soft Drinks are his only drink requests, food ones are similar to the others: Chocolates, Fruits and Sandwiches!
Bassist Pawel Maciwoda have exactly the same requests with James Kottak. That’s not something usual, local backstage crew had an easier job this time!
Stage drinks are really important, as it always boost the band when needed, we see here that there are more than one coolers, cubed ice and extra care taken for Klaus Meine’s quick change room!
After Show Catering is really about food now! Band and Crew will need a really big selection of Sandwiches!
A Rock Star is expected to be really hungry after a great show!
