Ramblin' Man Preview: The Scorpions
The festival’s Saturday headliners are celebrating a mere 50 years in the business – but will it be their last ever UK show?
On the night of July 25, a famous battle cry will ring out over Mote Park in Kent: “Turn ze spotlight on ze people!” For the first time in a decade, the Scorpions will be back on a UK stage, as headliners at a brand new rock festival, Ramblin’ Man Fair. The German rockers are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, and are currently in the process of ending their career. But when founding member Rudolf Schenker speaks to Classic Rock ahead of the show, he promises that the Scorpions will not go gentle into that good night.
What can the audience at Ramblin’ Man Fair expect from the Scorpions?
The people will get something very special. [Shouting] Have a party with us! Come and celebrate fifty years of Scorpions rock’n’roll! We’re very happy to come to England again.
