German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS have announced their North American “Crazy World” tour with very special guest MEGADETH.

Since performing a handful of festivals and concerts last year in the U.S., the band will return to North America for a month-long run of dates.

“When our album ‘Crazy World’ was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war, we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future,” said SOCRPIONS singer Klaus Meine. “Now, 26 years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you out there.”

SCORPIONS' MATTHIAS JABS Explains How Tour With MEGADETH Came About

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/scorpions-matthias-jabs-explains-how-tour-with-megadeth-came-about/

MEGADETH will join SCORPIONS on a North American tour which will kick off on September 14 in Reading, Pennsylvania and conclude on October 15 in Tampa, Florida. The 16-date trek, dubbed the “Crazy World Tour”, celebrates SCORPIONS‘ 1990 LP of the same name.

Asked by the “Lamont And Tonelli Show”, which airs on the Bay Area rock station 107.7 The Bone, how the SCORPIONSMEGADETH pairing came about, SCORPIONS guitarist Matthias Jabs said (hear audio on the above link): “It was a suggestion by our agent, from New York, of course. We have known MEGADETH for a long time. In Europe, we played together at festivals — in Portugal, in Spain and in other countries — years and years ago. And so they’re nice guys, they make great music, and I think it’s a great package.”

Two of the SCORPIONS‘ best-known songs, “Winds Of Change” and “Send Me An Angel”, both appear on “Crazy World”.

“When our album ‘Crazy World’ was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war, we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future,” SCORPIONS singer Klaus Meine said. “Now, 26 years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour.”

MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson told Roppongi Rocks in April that “it is really a cool bill to play with SCORPIONS. We have played festivals with them over the years and it’s a really good fit musically between the two bands and our fans. Plus I think every metal fan loves a SCORPIONS song. Dave [Mustaine, MEGADETH mainman] and I have always been fans and they are one of Kiko‘s [Loureiro, MEGADETH guitarist] favorites, too. They are a real guitar player’s kind of band. In fact, when Dave and I first met in 1983, we had a friend who was attending the school Musicians Institute in Hollywood and would come over to our place and jam early SCORPIONS songs. We always studied a lot of the European guitar players, because they had a different influence that worked well in metal…mostly classical inspirations. In a way, those jam sessions were inspiring in the development of the earliest MEGADETH compositions, especially the complexity in the solos and riffs. It was a really creative and innovative period that defined some of those earliest songs for ‘Killing Is My Business…’ and even ‘Peace Sells…’. I think the tour is going to see a lot of us reliving some cool memories from over th

Scorpions Receive Walk of Fame in Krakow, Poland

June 27th, 2017 by

On Friday, June 23 musicians Scorpions unveiled a star located just in the Wawel Castle Krakow’s Walk of Fame.

Scorpions as anyone deserved honor for the city of Krakow – the group performed here several times, and the story went live in 2000. Pobiednik at the airport near Krakow, which was playing about 800 thousand people! It is not only the largest concert ever held in Poland, but also in terms of attendance record for the team that during the more than 50-year career he played almost all the big festivals, the famous Rock in Rio at the helm.

Pobiednik concert, organized by RMF FM as part of the Invasion Force, to this day remains in the memory of musicians . – Organizers of the radio told us that they expect a hundred, maybe two hundred thousand people. We thought, wow, that’s a great crowd! When we went on stage it was dark and could not see how many people are actually in the audience. It reached us only when we saw the photos taken from a police helicopter published in the newspaper the next day – recalled guitarist Matthias Jabs.

On 4 March 2016. Krakow was held also the last, so far, Polish concert of Scorpions and the Wieliczka near Krakow comes from the current bassist, Paweł Mąciwoda.

– Paul fits well in the Scorpions. He joined us in 2003 when we recorded the album “Unbreakable”, for him it was something completely new. Now he finds himself very well in our style. I remember when we played in his hometown of Krakow during the last tour in March last year, the screens placed around the great arena that looks like a UFO, display the message: “Hello, Paul.” I was very proud of him and glad that we can play in his hometown, “- he told jabs.

– Concert in Krakow was wonderful – a fantastic arena, excellent audience. When we played “Wind of Change” in the audience appeared a huge Polish flag.Then watched it on video and it looked really spectacular – said singer Klaus Meine.

His star in the Walk of Fame have been Michael Jackson, Marek Grechuta, Celine Dion, Krzysztof Krawczyk, as well as teams Maanam, Wolves and Shed Stonehill.
