It’s Thursday, and time for our report about the cultural and entertainment events coming up in the next few days.
Event: Scorpions in concert
Place: Stark Arena
Time: 10th June
One of the most popular bands of hard rock scene, Scorpions will perform for the first time in Serbia, in Stark Arena, on 10th June, as a part of the European leg of their world tour called “Crazy World Tour”. Fifty years have gone by since the days when the young Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs wandered the streets of Hannover, which was just awakening from post war paralysis, with a barrow carrying their instruments and amplifiers. In these 50 years, they have become Germany’s, or rather Continental Europe’s most successful rock band, the living proof that not only VW, Mercedes or BMW are able to compete internationally, but classic rock music made in Germany as well. Countless bands, including the Smashing Pumpkins as well as Green Day, Korn, System Of A Down or Queensryche have covered songs by the Scorpions throughout the years. “Rock You Like A Hurricane” on its own was covered over 150 times by different musicians.
