HAVING JUST WRAPPED A TRIUMPHANT NORTH AMERICAN TOUR; GROUP TO HIT MEXICO AND SOUTH
AMERICA SEPTEMBER 4
For those who have not yet been stung by the mighty Scorpions on their latest concert tour, “The Best Is Yet To Come.”
Although the band recently wrapped a triumphant 38-show tour of North America on Saturday (8/21) in Chicago at
the (sold out in advance) Rosemont Theatre, they are now booking more U.S. shows next summer since their
overseas tour commitments had prevented them from adding more U.S. shows this year. The group will hit cities
they did not get a chance to perform in.
The Scorpions are now on a brief break and will resume their “Get Your
Sting and Blackout World Tour 2010” tour September 4 in Mexico and South America before heading back to Europe
with dates confirmed through November 27 in their German homeland.
The farewell tour by the iconic band--Klaus Meine (vocals), Matthias Jabs (lead guitar),
Rudolf Schenker (guitar), James Kottak (drums) and Pawel Maciwoda (bass)--is in
support of their latest album Sting in the Tail (Universal Music Enterprises).
In a recent interview (8/21/10) with Billboard’s Ray Waddell, lead singer Klaus Meine said, “What can I say? It’s a
celebration…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.” Of the touring climate right now, Waddell said, “Scorpions numbers are solid in
a summer where consistency is treasured.”
