Scorpions

Fri, 23. Oct 2009, 9.15 PM | Opening Night
Festsaal Messe Basel

Why is rock called rock? One reason is that it defies the ravages of time. Some rock songs have become milestones of history. In 1989, the ballad «Wind Of Change» by the Scorpions became the theme song for the fall of the Berlin Wall, establishing the hard rock group from Hannover as a cultural institution worldwide. In 2009, the Scorpions were presented the Lifetime Achievement Award at the ECHO Music Awards in Germany. It is an honour that they opened the festival edition in 2009 with their hits, which span over 40 years of the band’s history. Brandishing his guitar with the same kind of emotion: Ivo, a rock bard from central Switzerland, gave the Scorpions the welcome they deserve.
