Scorpions singer Klaus Meine recovering from surgery

Scorpions singer Klaus Meine is recovering from surgery in a Melbourne, AU hospital.

Along with tour mates Whitesnake, the German band were forced to postpone a February 22 concert in Sydney on short notice "due to a medical emergency within the Scorpions tour party.

"Live Nation is working on a rescheduled date for next week, with details to follow as soon as possible,"
the promoter said in a statement. "All existing tickets will remain valid for entry on the rescheduled date, without the need for exchange. Refunds will be available for patrons who are unable to attend the rescheduled date and can be obtained by contacting their point of purchase."

Meine – who underwent a procedure to remove kidney stones – updated fans on his condition via social media.

"Dear Fans,” began Meine, “The good news first .... we had a fantastic show in Melbourne Wednesday night at the Rod Laver Arena .... loved every minute of it .... it just feels soooo good to be back in Australia!!!! The bad news is... I have had kidney stone surgery in a Melbourne Hospital ... it was a very painful attack....

"In the hospital they removed the stone, and put in a stent .... can you imagine how I feel right now??? So sorry Sydney .... Do we have to cancel again??? It looks like it.... but we are hoping to re-schedule for next week, day to be announced.

"Dr Katz and his team are taking very good care of me ... I’m in the best hands, but I doubt I’ll be back on my feet until early next week..... with lots of Love with a Heavy Heart from Melbourne .... Klaus"

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

While fans await news of a rescheduled Sydney concert, the tour is currently set to resume in Auckland, NZ on February 27.
