In a press release last year, the German metal band said vocalist Klaus Meine had developed severe laryngitis and had been advised by a top throat specialist in Los Angeles to rest his voice. The band said, “[We] truly hate to disappoint our fans and hope to come back to America soon, but this time we have no choice [but to] cancel.”
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine (whose band was on tour with the Scorpions) tweeted how grateful he was to get to play some shows with the band, saying “My deepest gratitude to the Scorpions for taking us on tour. Talk about a boyhood dream coming true. My best wishes and we’ll be waiting.” Now, the only drawback is that Megadeth has been replaced by Queensryche this go-round.
