The tour was to mark the 30th anniversary of their "Lighting Strikes" album, so I played two tracks from that album...sort of! They may sound a little different because I have the Japanese edition which was released under the title “Shadows of the War”. The main difference is the tracks are in a different order and the song “Ashes In The Sky” is titled “Shadows Of War” and is the first song on the album.
Tonight's track from the Vault is a rare track from Scorpions titled "Hey You". It was originally available just as a single and was recorded in 1980 during the "Animal Magnetism" sessions. It now available as a bonus track on some of the editions, and I think it is the only Scorpions song featuring Rudolf Schenker singing lead!
