Scorpions To Return Next Year

Last week we brought you a review of what we thought was the Scorpions final North American concert but Gibson informs us today that the mighty Scorps will return to America: Call it animal magnetism or, perhaps, an elevated lovedrive, but the Scorpions just can't get enough of North America. And so, the German metal legends have extended their farewell tour with more U.S. dates to come next summer. The band are currently booking next summer's shows but have yet to announce any specific dates.

The North American leg of the Get Your Sting and Blackout Tour just concluded in Chicago on August 21, with the band playing in Mexico this Saturday and then heading back to Europe for further dates.

In a recent Billboard interview, singer Klaus Meine said, "What can I say? It's a celebrationů We feel we owe it to our fans and ourselves to keep this energy level. What we pull off every night on this tour, we want to keep it that way to the very last show. We don't want to see ourselves rocking like a hurricane when it's not a hurricane anymore." - more on this story
