Scorpions and Whitesnake have officially announced that tonight’s show in Sydney will have to be postponed due to a medical emergency. New updates will be coming out throughout the day.

German icons Scorpions are currently on tour in Australia with legendary rock’n’roll band, Whitesnake, for a double headline east coast arena tour.

Unfortunately, due to a medical emergency within the Scorpions tour party, the Scorpions and Whitesnake Sydney show scheduled to take place at Qudos Bank Arena will no longer be going ahead today, Saturday the 22nd of February.

Live Nation is working on a rescheduled date for next week, with details to follow as soon as possible.

For Whitesnake, this will be their first tour of the country since 2008, and will see the group dishing out tracks from their 13th album, 2019’s Flesh & Blood.

“We are beyond thrilled to be returning to Australia after so many years to play our music for you,” explained David Coverdale. “What is extra special is we’re returning with our very rocking friend the Scorpions!!

“SCORPIONS & SNAKES…it doesn’t get any better…or LOUDER! We promise you these will be nights to remember!”

For fans of the Scorpions though, this will be the group’s first return since 2017, following their Aussie debut just one year earlier. Having last visited with Def Leppard, the iconic German rockers are set to deliver some of the timeless classics, proving why they are continental Europe’s most successful band.
