There will be a total of nine performances, and the second one will be on July 8. The following dates are on July 11, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, and 25. On July 25, the band will have a goodbye concert and end its residency at the Entertainment Capital of the World.
Scorpions has more than 110 million records sold all over the globe and is one of the most important rock bands in the history of this genre. Some of its singles such as “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and “Winds of Change” topped the charts for a very long time.
The band was founded back in Germany in 1965 in the city of Hannover. Back in the day, Germany was split to East and West Germany, and Scorpions were located in the West.
It joined the first metal wave in the country during the 1970s, releasing Lonesome Crow, its first-ever album in 1972.
To this date, the band has released numerous albums and has been filling arenas everywhere it goes. Kalus Meine, Rudolf Schenker, Matthias Jabs, Paweł Mąciwoda, and Mikkey Dee are the current members of Scorpions who will make sure that their fans in Las Vegas get what they expect and even more.
The warm-up band, Queensrÿche, is a heavy metal act from the US, formed in 1980. It recorded a total of 15 studio albums and numerous other releases, selling more than 20 million copies worldwide.
Those who are into prog metal, power metal, and heavy metal are definitely going to enjoy this act, which will make a great introduction to Scorpions’ show.
Therefore, if you love either of the two bands, make sure to get your tickets while they are still available!
