The music band performed to a packed to capacity stadium with rock enthusiasts ensuring their presence, irrespective of age.

Thousands of fans danced and sang in frenzy as the legendary heavy metal band 'Scorpions' gave a high voltage performance on December 12.

Sanju, a Scorpians' fan, said: "It's a life time opportunity. Once in a blue moon you know... it won't come again."

Anju Singh, a 'Scorpions' fan while attending the conert, said: "The north-easts getting a big exposure. People all around the world know that in India, the north east is the place with a huge fan following for western music. And 'Scorpions' being such a legendary band, it's coming all the way to Shillong is a great privilege for us. It's great."

The beautiful hilly capital Shillong, has emerged as a major attraction for international music bands after recent performances by 'Petra', 'Fire House', 'Michael Learns to Rock', 'Air Supply' and former Iron Maiden's front man 'Paul Di Anno', 'Eric Martin', 'Mr Big' and 'Sepultura'.
