|Scorpions heading North East India
|By:- Ringo Pebam *
Matthias Jabs gave breath taking electric guitar solos, Klaus Mein was at his best with his voice and his German-English, you know. Rudolf the man behind the band, the founder, who shaped up the group was cool, playing the six strings, there was also a young girl who played the violin in their rendition of Kansas's "Dust in the Wind".
My buddies from the north though grew up with bhangra beat put me on their shoulders to catch better glimpse of the SCOPRIONS playing "Always somewhere" on acoustic guitars – wow, it was great seeing Rudolf and Matthias doing the guitar plucking of my anthem and Klaus joining in with... "Arrive at 7, the place feels good...", they went on to play "Holiday" and took me to places far away and deep into the music. The feeling was great!
I wanna feel that once again, do you also want to feel the same?
They are coming again.
They are not coming only to Bangalore.
They have heard the prayers of the musicians from the hills of North East.
They are coming to SHILLONG as well.
Come 12th December 2007, and Scorpions will be at your doorstep, make them feel at home, give your trademark rapturous reception on that night, their songs have been echoing in the streets, in the houses, in the concert venues of Shillong, Imphal, Churchandpur, Aizawal, Kohima, Guwahati…. for many many years.
North East, go to your attic, open up the boxes, take out the faded and dusted audio cassettes/tapes, play them loud again, the true Metal Gods from Germany are making their way – Revive your favorite numbers - Speedy's Coming, Fly to the Rainbow, In Trance, No one like you, Lovedrive, Loving you Sunday morning, Virgin Killer, When the smoke is going down, Holiday, Always somewhere, Rock You Like A Hurricane, Lady Starlight, Believe In Love...
In May this year, Scorpions released a new album(concept album) called Humanity: Hour I.
