2009 was the year of the Scorpions: they received the German lifetime achievement ECHO, collected many other awards, and undertook a grand tour through Russia, the U.S. and Europe. However, it is 2010 that will set a milestone for the career of the most successful international rock band from Germany. The Scorpions will be touring the world for the next 2 years and performing in the largest venues and stadiums that cross their path. The mammoth tour will be launched for the first time in many years in Germany. “It was important for us to give our fans a chance to celebrate a never-to-forget party with us”, said band founder Rudolf Schenker. Klaus Meine stated, “2010 is going to be a very special year for the Scorpions, so it is an especially good feeling to be able to start this tour at home”.
To top it all off, the Scorpions are planning on releasing a sensational statement this January at a press conference.
The performances in Germany will be followed by concerts in the U.S., South America, Asia, Russia and various countries in Europe. Matthias Jabs remarked about the tour, “we are very excited to be touring the globe for the next two years. The Scorpions want to rock the world once again!”
Momentarily, the band is in the recording studio working on their upcoming album "Sting in the Tail" that will also be released in 2010. The brand new DVD “Amazonia” - a live recording of the Scorpions concerts in Manaus and Recife, Brazil - is in stores now.Dates in Germany:
