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

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.
