Bloodstock is thrilled to announce their second headliner for 2019! Closing out the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday 11th August will be German rock legends, Scorpions! The band are excited to visit Catton Park for the very first time, commenting:
We are very happy and proud to be headlining at Bloodstock Festival 2019 in Derbyshire and we‘re thrilled to rock our fans in the UK once again like a hurricane.
Scorpions have notched up 18 studio records, including 2015’s Return To Forever and have sold over 160 million albums in their 50+ year career. With frontman Klaus Meine at the helm, the band’s line up features legendary axemen Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs, bassist Paweł Mąciwoda and former Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee who now sits behind the drums after stepping into the role in 2016. Just like the band tell us, expect to be rocked like a hurricane next August!
Scorpions join the previously announced Friday night headliner, Sabaton, together with Children of Bodom, Soilwork, Cradle of Filth, Dee Snider, Queensryche and Hypocrisy on the Catton Park stages next August. Stay tuned for more bands to be announced soon!
