SCORPIONS SET TO STING 2022 WITH NEW ALBUM & TOUR

SCORPIONS SET TO STING 2022 WITH NEW ALBUM & TOUR

                             

Scorpions did not rest or relax during the pandemic's lockdown.  In fact, it was quite the opposite, for the legendary classic German rock band.  They're getting set to both release a new full length album and support that with a world tour.

Set for release on Feburary 11, Scorpions' new album is titled Rock Believer.  The lead single, Peacemaker, will be available on October 21.  This will be the first Scorpions album to feature Motorhead's Mikkey Dee, on drums, who joined Scorpions in 2016, after Motorhead disbanded, due to the passing of Lemmy Kilmister.

To support Rock Believer, Scorpions are embarking on a world tour (all dates below), with a 9-date residency at the Zappos Theater, in Las Vegas.  Some of the European dates will have Mammoth WVH (Eddie Van Halen's son, Wolfgang's band.), as the opening act.

When talking about the recording of Rock Believer, Scorpions' lead singer, Klaus Meine said "We recorded the album as a band live in one room, like we did in the ‘80s."  

And when talking about the tour, lead guitarist, Rudolf Schenker, had this to say: "The prospect of rocking with my bandmates in front of hundreds of thousands of fans next year, and presenting them [with] our new album, is already giving me goose bumps  This album and the upcoming world tour will also be something very special in our career.”
