SCORPIONS: WACKEN OPEN AIR Performance To Be Webcast

German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS will have their Wacken Open Air performance broadcast live on the Internet via IZ-Radio (web site) on Thursday, August 3 beginning at 9:45 p.m. CET (time zone converter).

SCORPIONS has reportedly tapped songwriter/producer Desmond Child — who has worked with such high-profile pop/rock artists as AEROSMITH, BON JOVI, ALICE COOPER, KISS, RICKY MARTIN, CHER, MICHAEL BOLTON and BONNIE TYLER — to produce its next studio album, which it expects to release before the end of 2007. Child, who recently worked with Michael Beinhorn, Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman as co-producer on MEAT LOAF's "Bat Out of Hell III: The Last at Bat" CD, has also been mentioned as MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil's likely collaborator on Neil's new solo album, which the vocalist was previously said to be planning to record this summer.

SCORPIONS' latest album, "Unbreakable", was released in the U.S. in June 2004 through Sanctuary Records. The CD was recorded at Peppermint Park Studio in Hannover, Germany and was mixed at Wisseloord studios in Hilversum, Holland.
