The Boemel in Scherpenheuvel, it tells you – at least if you are not of Scherpenheuvel or the surrounding area – probably nothing, but it was the youth club where the earliest version of The Scabs forty years ago, their first concert played.
Today is the best rock band of the country more alive than ever! After many successes and a few sabbatjaren will The Scabs be there in 2018, again in a strong line-up: Guy Swinnen, Frankie Saenen and Willy Willy to be for this tour, assisted by Patrick Cuyvers (keys), Geert Schurmans (bass) and David Piedfort (guitar/vocals).
In 2018, there is even a summer tour along Belgian festivals undertaken, and this under the appropriate title of ‘The Scabs – Summer Tour – Forty Years’.
All the hits, all the audience favorites will be reviewed. Of debuuthit ‘So Called Friends’ on ‘Stay’ and ‘Hard Times’ to ‘Robbin’ the Liquor Store’, ‘She’s Jivin’ and ‘Turn it Up’.
The first performance dates for the summer of 2018 are now published by The Scabs: The Casino in Sint-Niklaas (4/5), Tongelse Festivals (12/5), Goezot in Oud-Turnhout (1/6), Zonhoven Kicks By (23/6), Moen Festival (30/6), Dendermonde Celebrates (7/7), Dessel Swingt (25/8), Frietrock in Ieper (8/9) and Pukema in Puurs (15/9).
