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, telling us “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 Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee who now sits behind the drums after stepping into the role in 2016.
