THE SCORPIONS To Perform In Israel

Merav Yudilovitch of Ynetnews.com is reporting that German hard rockers THE SCORPIONS are expected to perform in Israel this summer, after being impressed by a young Israeli singer during a Berlin fundraiser for the benefit of tsunami victims.

The band's management is presently in discussions with Israeli producer Shuki Weiss and if all goes well, the band will perform at Tel Aviv's Bloomfield stadium on July 7. However, sources close to Weiss say a contract has not yet been signed, reports Ynetnews.com.

Group members met young Israeli singer Liel Kolet two months ago at a Berlin fundraiser for the benefit for tsunami victims. Kolet performed JOHN LENNON's "Imagine" with SCORPIONS lead singer Klaus Meine, a song the two plan to sing together at the concert in Israel.

Kolet's manager Irit Ten-Hengel told Ynetnews.com group members told Kolet they would agree to perform in Israel if Liel agreed to sing with them.

"The production team (in Israel) received confirmation and we finalized one performance at Bloomfield," she said.

Ten-Hengel said Kolet would also perform with THE SCORPIONS at a concert in Frankfurt two days after the Israeli show.

"Kolet found meeting them even more exciting than meeting (President Bill) Clinton and Bono (U2's lead singer)," she said. "She loves rock music and knows all the lyrics of their songs."
