The Scorpions Are Touring With RATT

The Scorpions are touring the world in 2010 as part of their farewell to fans. For the U.S. leg, RATT will provide support. I'm thinking there's another band still to be added...common sense would point to Cinderella, but that wouldn't give Tom Keifer and his crew very much time on stage.

I'm pretty excited about the Scorps/RATT package. I think it will be a good show and I definitely believe RATT needs to heavily push the songs off Infestation.

The tour is supposed to begin in July. I just hope the guys in both the Scorps and RATT take a note from Iron Maiden and keep ticket prices reasonable.

Cool news. Tom not having too much time on stage may be a good thing for his voice (don't want it to blow out again), so maybe they'll want to be added to this tour.

Good point Brian, and those three bands would make a great package.

I agree with Allison, It wouldn't give Cinderella much time, probably 20 minutes. If that is the case, I am glad I have tickets to the Philly warm-up show.

Not near enough stage time for Cinderella if they join the Scorps & Ratt. Especially in light of their 2008 tour being cancelled.

20 minutes JN? I've never seen an opener only get 20 minutes, must be a US thing...

This sounds great. I hope they hit up DTE Energy Theater near Detroit.

BTW -- Any idea what Iron Maiden tickets are gonna be going for?

Ramzilla, the last few concerts I have seen with 3 acts, the 1st act usually gets around 20 minutes. Def Leppard, Poison, Cheap Trick, that's all Cheap Trick was alloted.

It was me who posted the 20 minute comment JN. Anyway, that sucks.
I saw Faster Pussycat, Enuff z Nuff and Dirty Passion a couple of months ago and the first band got at least half an hour.

I'm seeing the Scorpions at M3 (with Cinderella playing, too), but I would prefer to see Ratt as a headliner so they would get more time. I probably won't see the Scorps again just to see a short Ratt set.
