Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine is recovering from surgery to remove kidney stones, which forced the band to postpone their  concert in Sydney, Australia. 

Meine shared an update with fans via Facebook, “Dear Fans, the good news first …. we had a fantastic show in Melbourne Wednesday night at the Rod Laver Arena …. loved every minute of it …. it just feels soooo good to be back in Australia !!!! The bad news is… I have had kidney stone surgery in a Melbourne Hospital … it was a very painful attack ,…”In the hospital they removed the stone, and put in a stent …. can you imagine how i feel right now ??? So sorry Sydney …. Do we have to cancel again ??? It looks like it…. but we are hoping to re-schedule for next week,day to be announced.”

Tickets for the date at the Qudos Bank Arena, which included an opening set by Whitesnake, will be honored at a make-up date. The Scorpions’ next concert was scheduled for this Monday, Feb. 24, in Brisbane, Australia, but it is unknown as of press time whether that show will go on. Scorpions will return to North America when their Sin City Nights residency begins at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas begins on July 4.
