Scorpions Guitarist Injures Foot At Concert


December 2, 2007

Scorpions guitarist Rudolf Schenker posted the following at about his recent foot injury while on tour:

“During our show last Friday in Clermont Ferrand / France I tore a muscle in my foot. Therefore, I was forced to play the rest of the performance in just one area of the stage. To cancel that concert or to cancel any upcoming performances would disappoint the fans so that was out of the question. I hope that all the fans will understand that I will not be able to exhibit my full stage energy until my injury heals. I have consulted with Germany’s best Sports Medicine Physician and I am receiving the best treatment. I look forward to the future shows where I am able to give my maximum stage performance. Until then, thank you for your continued support and see you in Portugal and India in the coming weeks.”

Yours, Rudolf
