Scorpions Rock Athens (video)

Thousands of Greek music lovers attended the “Once in a Lifetime” concert by veteran hard rockers Scorpions on Monday in the ‘Kallimarmaro’ Panathenaic stadium in central Athens.

Scorpions, a German rock band formed in 1965, shared the limelight with the Athens State Orchestra and presented some of their biggest hits in a symphonic rendition.

In a press conference before the concert, the band said that they would attempt to create a bridge between rock and symphonic music, adding that different types of music need to “meet”.
