“While we were working on our album these past few months, we could literally feel how powerful and creative our work was – and how much fun we were still having, in the process,” said lead singer Klaus Meine. “We want to end the Scorpions’ extraordinary career on a high note. We are extremely gracious for the fact that we still have the same passion for music we’ve always had since the beginning.”
“So, at some point,” added guitarist Matthias Jabs, “it came to us to end our career with this exceptional album.” Rudolf Schenker said, “The three year tour through five continents is meant to be a huge blowout, where we can party with our fans and say goodbye. When I started out, I had a lot of wishes. It’s crazy, I achieved more than I ever even dreamed of.”
During their 40-year career, Scorpions have sold over 100 million albums and received many awards, such as the World Music Award and several Echos – the German equivalent to the Grammy. Today they still play sold-out venues around the world. Not long ago, 152,000 South Americans came to 15 Scorpions concerts between Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City. Their song “Wind of Change” has become an anthem for the fall of the Iron Curtain.
The tour will launch in the band’s home country Germany in May. After that, they will be touring through North America before they continue their journey through five other continents until 2012.
