Mark Your Calendar!


There's apparently a lot of excitement for this farewell tour... especially in La Source near Orléans, where these billboards popped up this week on several street corners. Yes, after 45 years, the members of Scorpions are calling it quits, and the city of Tours, an hour and a half from here, is among nine French cities chosen for their tournée adieu.

I haven't been to a rock concert since I saw Foreigner in the mid-eighties in the U.S. (anyone see the irony here?) but I might just be tempted to ask Bernard to look into tickets... And hopefully all the lyrics won't be translated into French...

For a long time, I didn't know Scorpions was a German band... I think their English is sehr gut... Even if I weren't already a fan, I'd be curious to go to this merely for the people watching... What do French hard rockers wear? Will they be belting all out the lyrics in their best English? How old would the average concert-goer be? I mean, 45 years... that's a long time in the music business... Their songs are still all over the radio in France...

Take me... to the magic of the moment... ♪♫♫♪
