Scorpions are known for such songs as “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “Send me an Angel,” “Wind of Change,” “No One Like You,” “Still Loving You,” and their latest single and radio hit “Raised On Rock.” Scorpions new and final album, “Sting in the Tail” was released March 23rd via Universal Music Enterprises entered the Billboard Top 200 charts at #23 marking the bands highest chart debut in over 20 years.

The German rockers will be celebrating 40+ years in music on this final outing--set to kick off June 18 in Holmdel, NJ--that will take them around the globe through 2012, with special guests supporting along the way.
“Scorpions is a live band,“ asserts MEINE. “Totally, 200%, this band was always about live concerts. We always wanted to go on stage and play in front of our fans. From the very beginning, from the smallest clubs to the biggest arenas and stadiums around the world, the passion to be a live band has never changed.” And when asked why the band decided to retire after all these years together, SCHENKER stated, “We want to celebrate [with] a big party around the world. We've had a really great career, coming out from Germany and showing people that rock can come out of Germany. I think we started as a gang built by friendship and musicality, and going and showing that the Germans can rock"
