Oh mymymy! We made it... Barely We arrived at the arena 20 minutes before we were supposed to go on stage. Thanx to our fantastic tourmanager Staffan that co-ordinated the local crew and the Scorpions crew most of the gear was already up on stage and running, if it would'nt have been for them there definatly would'nt have been a Europe show tonight! Also a big fat thanx to out own crew Rompa, Q-lan, Mattias, Jens & Erik for always giving a 1000% and always making the best of what's been given Now it's time to relax and enjoy The Scorpions on stage! Cheers, Ian
BTW, the comments say : "I didn't know them, they're good, I want to buy the album...", or else "too short, so I'm going to see them tomorrow too, to hear again the magnificent war of kings..". And so on... And I noticed there's even more "likes" than on the post about Scorpions.
On the Zenith's page, too, the comments are great. Everybody enjoyed the performance of our heroes. I think this tour with Scorpions will give them many new fans.

It has been a fantastic, elegant and incredibly powerful opening to Scorpions!
Even if I had known about the issues the band was having to get there on time and in the end they arrived only 20 min before the show started, I would have never told that from the way they presented themselves on stage! Thanks to Staffan and Mathias of the Crew who came from Goteborg and so they didn't get blocked at Bromma airport for the technical issues to the airplane, everything was ready when the rest of the band arrived!
This is my video of Last Look At Eden from that show! Oh well... Stefania and I arrived only 10 minutes before the start, because we have had our share of issues along the way too! But we managed to get spotted there by waving our arms frantically plus my scarf (that's what scarves are made for, actually! ). Joey came to us 4 times! They really need and feel the support of their hard-core fans!!!
BTW...I have already in my ears what michaeljessen will tell me: "when the lead guitarist is playing his solo, you videotape HIM, not the singer!" (@3:20)
Standing there among so many Scorpions fans made me feel even prouder to see how they welcomed our guys! I was looking around saying "Those are my guys, those are my guys!!!!!"
I think the enthusiasm definitely took the upper hand which I loved it!
As Michaela Italy already said, Joey managed to spot us in the audience and came to greet us a few times! He pointed at us and then touched his heart! I think he truly appreciated that we were there to support our band opening for one of the greatest Rock bands in history!
The Scorpions were awesome!!!!! It was very emotional when Klaus Meine said "Tonight we are united in the name of peace and hope!" and they dedicated a few beautiful songs to the victims in Paris! I had goosebumps!
NOTHING in this world is more powerful than Music! NOTHING in this world can unite people as Music does!!!

Dear girls, (Michaela Italy & Stefania ) amazing adventures in each concert to support the band. I think it really has created a special connection between the band and the fans group "who are in the first row", those people who is always there with passion, what it should to be really good for them, especially for Joey see these fans in a concert that is not 100% Europe ... where most of the people who are there is for Scorpions, ... really great to see familiar faces , right ? I think so.
