Techno titan Scooter brings 30th anniversary tour to the UK

It’s a ‘Thirty, Rough and Dirty’ set of gigs…

Scooter, a techno titan and a beacon of musical ingenuity has etched an indelible mark on the global music scene. From their roots in Hamburg, Germany, the band, led by the charismatic H.P. Baxxter, soared to prominence with over 30 million albums sold and more than 2.5 billion streams worldwide. Their track record boasts 23 top ten hits and a consistent presence in the charts, highlighted by their latest album “OPEN YOUR MIND AND YOUR TROUSERS” reaching #2 in Germany and #2 in the UK Dance charts.

Arguably one of Europe’s most successful techno acts, Scooter, announced today that they will be returning to the UK and Ireland later this year as part of their 30th-anniversary tour – the ‘Thirty, Rough and Dirty’ tour. Hitting venues including London’s OVO Arena Wembley, the trio around frontman H.P. Baxxter is set to give fans an unforgettable party and celebration of Scooter hits – old and new.

The anniversary tour news follows from the band’s latest milestone which is the release of their 21st studio album – ‘Open Your Mind and Your Trousers’. Boasting over 30 million albums sold globally and more than 100 gold and platinum awards, Scooter’s latest offering is a testament to their enduring musical prowess. The album, featuring 15 tracks in their signature style, includes previously released singles such as ‘Techno is Back’, ‘Rave & Shout’, ‘Waste Your Youth’, ‘For Those About To Rave’.
The ‘Thirty, Rough and Dirty’ tour kicked off last month in Stuttgart, Germany, and will now continue throughout Europe this spring before coming to the UK and Ireland in October and November. Full dates & locations below.
