Scorpions To Retire After New Album
And Long World Tour

Yes, it is rather sad news. Scorpions, one of the best and most memorable rock bands, will soon be no more. The German bad boys, a fantastic group of lovely and lively guys, are to retire.

They will do so after a huge world tour in support of their new album, 'Sting In The Tail' (Due out March 19, 2010). It's being called the 'Get Your Sting And Blackout World Tour 2010 / 2011', but it will probably go on into at least 2012. The tour starts in March, and then leads them across the globe over the next few years. Visit the band's Tour Page for updates. These lads put on amazing live shows, so go see them in concert, when they come around your area for the last time. See the note posted to their web site below.

Important Message to our Fans

It was always our pleasure, our purpose in life, our passion and we were fortunate enough to make music for you - whether it was live on stage or in the studio, creating new songs.

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. But there was also something else: We want to end the Scorpion’s extraordinary career on a high note. We are extremely grateful for the fact that we still have the same passion for music we’ve always had since the beginning. This is why, especially now, we agree we have reached the end of the road. We finish our career with an album we consider to be one of the best we have ever recorded and with a tour that will start in our home country Germany and take us to five different continents over the next few years.

We want you, our fans, to be the first to know about this. Thank you for your never-ending support throughout the years!

We uploaded the very first snippets from our new album for you.

And now... let’s get the party started and get ready for a “Sting in the Tail”!

See you on the world tour,

Yours Scorpions


New Album: Sting In The Tail
Release: March 19th 2010
