*More Concerts Announcing Soon

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 the 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.”

General tickets and special VIP packages on sale soon. The Los Angeles concert on October 7 will go on sale on March 24 with presale starting tomorrow (march 23).

SCORPIONS supported by Megadeth this Fall On ‘Crazy World’ U.S. Tour

According to the Los Angeles radio station 93.1 Jack FM, MEGADETH will open for German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS on a U.S. tour this fall. The trek will include an October 7 stop at the Forum in L.A. Tickets for that show go on sale this Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m., with a presale on Thursday using the password “crazy.”

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently said that he was “really excited” about the opportunity to support an undisclosed band on at least one show in the U.S. later in 2017.

MEGADETH has spent more than a year on the road promoting the band’s latest album, “Dystopia”, which arrived in January 2016. The group is currently scheduled to head back out on tour at the end of April, with three U.S. festival appearances penciled in for July.

Speaking to Meltdown of the WRIF radio station in Detroit, Michigan, Mustaine stated about MEGADETH‘s touring plans for the coming months: “Believe it or not, we’ve got some cool things going on for the States. We’ve got two really great things we’re gonna be doing. We’ll be heading out some part of the spring or summer, and then we just were told about an opportunity at the end of the year that really, really excited me. It’s somebody I’ve never played with before that we’re actually gonna be supporting. They were so cool that we would step down from being a headliner to support this group.”

Mustaine offered more information on MEGADETH‘s two upcoming tours in a separate interview with Billboard. He said: “They’re both going to be very different, but exciting. One we’re headlining, and it’s very much bands of our ilk, and for the other one, we’re in a support position for the first time in years. It’s a band that I’m a huge fan of. We’re really excited to see what these different dates are going to be like and have fans see us in different capacities. The headlining dates will be these diehard fans, and the others where we’re going to be out with this band we’re supporting, and their fans are going to hear us and won’t know us from the man on the moon.”

REVIEW / CONCERT

SCORPIONS – 50TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR – LIVE IN SINGAPORE

Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre/Last Friday

Veteran German rock band Scorpions’ energetic 50th anniversary tour performance in Singapore last Friday – a classic rock showcase, complete with all the bombast – would put many younger rockers to shame.

Like the well-oiled machine their compatriots are famous for producing, they proved they very much still have drive and performance, delivering a stellar 90-minute set to a sold-out crowd of 7,000 at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Whether Scorpions played a classic number such as Always Somewhere or a newer track such as We Built This House, most of the crowd faithfully woah-oh-oh-ed along.

The audience – which included middle-aged men and women, as well as 20somethings decked out in tour T-shirts – was largely an enthusiastic bunch who, at points during the concert, literally made the ground shake with its foot stomping and cheering.

But no matter how much the band tried, they could not get the seated audience in the venue to join in the party that was happening in the standing-only section.

Even then, they did an excellent job of playing to the adoring mass, with lead singer Klaus Meine frequently throwing drumsticks into the crowd and guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs throwing down face-melting licks with plenty of style.

Wind Of Change, as was to be expected, saw the most spirited interaction between the band and the audience, with the energy in the room lifting as the crowd sang along on the classic in full voice.

Drummer Mikkey Dee, in particular, was a scene stealer with his mop of grey hair flailing as he thrashed away on the drumkit. There was a nod to his former band as the Scorpions performed Motorhead’s Overkill, which segued into a blistering five-minute drum solo that ended with the stage screens filled with Scorpions’ album covers.

It was one of many triumphant moments on a night that culminated in an encore of Still Loving You and Rock You Like A Hurricane.

Scorpions, who played here in 1994 and 2001, belong to a small group of old-school bands who are still going strong after decades. Like The Rolling Stones and The Who, they proved last Friday night why they have such longevity – they can put on a rocking good live show.

One may think it cheesy that Meine’s leather vest was emblazoned on the back with the words “Rock ‘n’ Roll Forever”, but they are living out the truth of those words.

Their tale still has sting.
