Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine undergoes emergency kidney stone surgery in Melbourne, Australia
Bad news for Scorpions fans as the German rockers’ long-time 71 year old frontman Klaus Meine had to have kidney stone surgery in Melbourne, Australia while the band was in the midst of a tour along with Whitesnake through Australia and Asia. This forced the cancellation of the Scorpions‘ tour stop at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia on February 22, 2020.
The following message was posted on the Scorpions‘ Facebook page earlier today:
“Dear Fans , 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“
Sleaze Roxx wishes a speedy recovery to the Scorpions‘ long-time frontman.
