Severe Weather Warning: Bangkok to be Rocked With Hurricane-Like Force (Canceled)

Update: This event has been canceled in light of the death of His Late Majesty King Bhumibol

BANGKOK — To celebrate its 50 anniversary, legendary German rock act Scorpions will stop by to perform live in October.

Best known for 1984 rock anthem “Rock You Like A Hurricane” and ballad “Wind of Change,” the rock predators will show Bangkok if they can still put the sex in “sexagenarian” Oct. 26 at BITEC in Bang Na.


Tickets run from 1,200 baht to 5,200 baht and will go on sale online July 11.


Formed in Hanover in 1965, the rockers have visited the kingdom a few times, such as 2004’s The Unbreakable World Tour and the less-than-accurately billed “farewell tour” of 2011.

Regardless of its previously announced retirement, the band, now 50, released its 18th album “Return to Forever” in February 2015.
