Scorpions Announce Final Album/ Tour

One of Hard Rock's most successful bands, Scorpions announced on their website that their upcoming album "Sting In The Tail" out March 23rd, will be the group's final album. The band will be going on a 3 year tour across five continents in support of their latest effort, kicking off from the band's home Germany in May.

The band issued the following:

"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 Klaus Meine.

"We want to end the SCORPION's 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 stated, "The three year tour through five continents is meant to be a huge blowout, where we can party with our fans and say good-bye." "When I started out, I had a lot of wishes,"
Schenker noted. "It's crazy, I achieved more than I ever even dreamed of."

Talk about going out with a big bang.
