October 8th, 2017

German heavy metal / hard rock group Scorpions have been forced to cancel the remaining five dates of their current North American tour.

Scorpions issued to following statement: “The Scorpions regretfully announce that due to severe laryngitis, the remainder of the U.S. 2017 tour will be cancelled. Klaus Meine has been advised by top throat specialist in Los Angeles to rest his voice. If he continues the tour, he could risk permanent vocal damage. The band stated, ‘[We] truly hate to disappoint our fans, and hope to come back to America soon, but this time we have no choice but to cancel’.”
