YEKATERINBURG, March 25. /TASS/. German band Scooter has cancelled its concert in Russia’s Urals city of Yekaterinburg, according to the band’s official Facebook page.
The Finair flight en route from Helsinki to Yekaterinburg that carried musicians was not able to land at Koltsovo airport because of the fog.
"Due to heavy fog at the Yekaterinenburg airport, it was impossible to land the aircraft and the flight was redirected to Helsinki via Kazan. These circumstances make it impossible to make the show today. Unfortunately show has to be cancelled. But we will re-schedule the show as soon as we find the right date with the local promoter," Scooter wrote on its Facebook page on Friday.
Organizers of the concert have so far refrained from any comments. The concert was scheduled to start at 10pm local time (8pm Moscow time).
Planes did not land at Koltsovo in the morning because of the fog. According to the airport’s online flight board, several flights from Moscow, Yerevan, Bishkek, Helsinki, Novosibirsk and Orenburg were delayed. Several flights to Moscow and St. Petersburg were delayed as well. The airport is currently operating in the routine mode.
Scooter is well-known in many countries. It sold over 30 million albums and singles across the world.
