“Wind of Change” chased the rain away in Cluj, on the inauguration of the Cluj Arena stadium, as Scorpions played on Saturday before a 40,000-strong audience who hummed along their idols hits like “Still Loving You” or “Rock You like a Hurricane”. The Scorpions concert started sharp on time, at 9.15pm, and the band members made their entrance in style, with James Kottak, the band drummer, lifted on a platform above the stage.
According to Mediafax, the concert abounded in special lighting effects, as well as guitar and drum solos offered by guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs, bassist Pawel Maciwoda and drummer James Kottak, which had an electrifying effect on the public.
The Scorpions concert in Cluj was part of the band’s farewell world tour, “Get Your Sting and Blackout World Tour”. The tour is scheduled to run for three years and will include concerts across the world.
Yesterday night the Cluj Arena was due to host a Smokie concert.
