Scorpions to Launch 2010 U.S. Tour

With over 100 million records sold, the Scorpions announced this year that they will leave it ALL on the stage after 40+ years of entertaining fans worldwide. The band is currently out on their “Get Your Sting and Blackout” farewell world tour and will hit the states Friday, June 18 to kick off the North American leg in Holmdel, NJ.

The German rockers will be bring their heavy, full-on, electrically charged energy to major cities across the U.S. including Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Atlanta, Miami, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver and many more as they celebrate the success of their latest and final album ‘Sting in the Tail’. Special guests on the tour will include Vince Neil, Cinderella, Great White, Dokken, Ratt and Tesla supporting along the way.

Released March 23 via Universal Music Enterprises, ‘Sting in the Tail’ entered the Billboard Top 200 charts at #23, marking the band’s highest chart debut in over 20 years. In their home country of Germany the album has reached Gold status. “Raised on Rock”–the album’s anthemic first single–claimed the #1 spot at classic rock radio for weeks and adds to their remarkable list of hits including “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “Wind of Change” and “No One Like You.” The band’s next single “Sting in the Tail”–going to radio June 21–is all about attitude. Lead singer Klaus Meine wails “I’m driving out of town, just follow my heart/I think I’m gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star/The girls would go mad, I’d give ‘em all I can give/If I had a cheap guitar and one dirty riff.”

Meine continues to thank their loyal fans and invite them out to the biggest party of the year. “We are so incredibly happy about the fantastic feedback we have been receiving from around the world on Sting in the Tail. We can’t wait to see our fans soon!”
