Scorpions Don't Know Where Farewell Tour Will End
When and where is the tour expected to end? I'll tell you one thing: We know a lot of things about where we play in 2012. The only thing that we don't know yet—we have a few options which I can't tell you yet—but the options are looking like it will be the end of 2012 or January 2013. Where it will be, it will be announced in, I guess, one month.
Are you going to return to the United States for one more jaunt? From our record company and also from our agency, the people badly want us back. The response of ours in 2012, I was surprised to listen to the news and read in the magazines how the American critics were talking about the Scorpions this time, it was unbelievable. They're writing something like, "Why are the Scorpions still looking so great and our bands are looking terrible? Maybe they've taken too many drugs," and all these kinds of things. I was laughing on the floor.
But anyway, the convinced us to go back to the United States and Canada. On the other hand, they didn't have to convince us so much; we always like to play America. And if you look back at our career, you can see that it's the home country, the homeland of rock and roll. It's really feeling like you are the cowboy going on the road, fantastic! In the tour bus, cruising the country and really enjoying the great scenery and the great atmosphere playing in the United States. Read the rest of the interview here.
