Scorpions: Los Angeles City Council presentation cancelled due to illness

An October 6 Los Angeles City Council presentation honoring The Scorpions has been cancelled “due to illness in the band”, according to Councilman Jose Huizar.

The band were to be on hand in Van Nuys, CA for the event, which would have seen the city declare October 6 as “Scorpions Day” following a resolution by Huizar that was to recognize the group for “52 years of excellence in rock ‘n roll, including making records in Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world.”

The resolution noted that the group has ties to Los Angeles, where the band recorded three albums and has frequently performed over the years.

The Scorpions are scheduled to perform at The Forum in Los Angeles on October 7, with special guests Megadeth, as part of their Crazy World fall North American tour, which will wrap up in Tampa, FL on October 15.

The world tour highlights the group's eleventh album, “Crazy World”, which peaked at No. 21 on the US Billboard 200 with help from the international hit and Top 5 US single, “Wind Of Change.”

“When our album Crazy World was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war,” explained singer Klaus Meine earlier this year, “we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future.

"Now 26 years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our world tour.”
