The Scorpions have rescheduled a February 22 concert in Sydney, AU following kidney stone surgery to singer Klaus Meine.

The German rockers – who were forced to postpone the original event on short notice as Meine underwent the procedure – will perform the make up date with tour mates Whitesnake at the city’s Qudos Bank Arena on Wednesday, February 26.

All existing tickets remain valid without the need for exchange.

“Looks like I‘m on my way to Sydney tomorrow,” shared Meine Monday on social media alongside a photo with his doctor. “It would mean the world to me if we finally could play the Show on Wednesday Night. I feel still a bit beaten up , but Dr. Katz said .... you can do it my friend ... Let‘s Rock it Sydney ..... Are you ready for the Sting.”

As the singer continues to recover from surgery, the Scorpions and Whitesnake previously announced the cancellation of their February 24 concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane.

A tour update on Monday announced the further cancellation of the tour’s February 27 stop at the Spark Arena in Auckland, NZ "due to a medical emergency within the Scorpions tour party and insurmountable logistical issues."
