Two of the UK’s leading tribute acts to The Scorpions and Michael Schenker Group, Scopyons and The Michael Schenker Expereince are live at the Flowerpot in Derby this weekend.

Formed at the start of 2012, Scopyons spent nine months rehearsing before playing their first gig in September of that year.

They were quickly acknowledged as the premier UK Scorpions tribute and were subsequently offered the opportunity to go and play in Munich alongside Scorpions guitarist Matthias Jabs.

Their set features all The Scorpions’ big hits, including Rock You Like A Hurricane, Big City Nights and No-One Like You and Wind of Change.

Joining them on the bill for the night will be The Michael Schenker Experience who are regarded as the UK’s definitive tribute band to the music of UFO and Michael Schenker.

The gig is on Saturday, May 28 and doors open at 8pm.

Entry is £10 and tickets are also available in advance from the venue or Raw Promotions at www.rawpromo.co.uk
