Scorpions Concert In Lebanon

  2. It was really an awesome concert. The crowd was crazy and it was nice to see young rockers standing next to grandparents.
    They also threw many drumsticks and guitar picks (If they do that at every concert they must be really generous!).

    And finally the lead singer took the time to sign autographs to the people in front.

    There was no encores though.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it! My brother went to today’s concert and my cousin to yesterday’s. I’ll have a new post soon with their pics and if I can (ontornet) videos.
      And i think the drumsticks and guitar picks are thrown at each concert. It’s sort of a ritual, I believe. Not just for scorpions but for all bands.
