SCORPIONS: Rock in Rio Live!

Here are some shots from Scorpions live in January 19, 1985 at the first Rock in Rio festival. It was a 10-day event which also included AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Queen, Yes, Whitesnake and Iron Maiden, among many more.

Recently, the German band played in Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia, in July 31, and also at the Wacken Festival in Germany. Their next stop will be Norway in August 19, and after they will be back to Berlin. By September, the band will be playing in such places as Trinidad and Spain.

I would like to share these pictures taken more than twenty years ago in the magical and beautiful Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Jabs and Klaus Meine in the front line.
