German rock band Scorpions is set for a return to Israel, to perform July 9 at Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, February 16.
“We really love Israel and are waiting breathlessly to return and perform,” said Klaus Meine in a video. “We’ll rock you like a hurricane.”
The group has played Israel several times in the past, and last visited in 2018.
The band’s upcoming stop in Israel is part of its current world tour to promote new album, “Rock Believer,” its first album released since 2017.
Meine told Metal Hammer Magazine that the new material marks a return to the band’s roots.
“We simply wanted to reactivate the original Scorpions DNA — great riffs, strong melodies,” he said.
The band is estimated to have sold over 100 million records around the world, making it one of the best-selling hard rock and heavy metal acts.
The German rock band was formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker, with musical styles that range from hard rock and heavy metal to glam metal and soft rock.
