Romanian band Trooper was chosen to open for the German rock band Scorpions. The concert, part of the “Rock’n Roll Forever Tour 2013”0, will take place on December 14, 2013 at Romexpo Central Pavilion in Bucharest, according to iconcert.ro. One should keep in mind that it’s not the first time Trooper open for the German band. The band performed in 2011 at Zone Arena as the opening act for Scorpions. “The fact that we’ll open for the second time for a Scorpions concert is unimaginable! And the fact that Scorpions chose us is a confirmation. A confirmation of our entire work over the last eighteen years. I listened to Scorpions for the first time in 1990. Since that moment, they have been one of our favourite bands. I am speechless. Bon Jovi stated last year that the only band for which he would accept to perform as the opening act is Scorpions. If Bon Jovi said that…I will shut up and I will be the proudest man when performing on the stage on December 14,” said Alin Dinca, Trooper’s lead singer.
Founded in 1995, Trooper became one of the most appreciated and loved heavy metal bands in Romania. The band has opened for Iron Maiden, Manowar, Prodigy, Judas Priest, Whitesnake, WASP, Europe, Sepultura, Rasmus, Dog Eat Dog or Nazareth.
