The Scorpions will get on stage at 10:15PM and present will be all members, including Uli Jon Roth, Michael Schenker and Herman Rarevell. The show is supposed to be spectacular, because there will be four guitar players and two drummers and the band will perform its longest repertoire – two hours and a half!
