Our Dear friend ELTON MALAJ conducted a Face to Face interview with Matthias Jabs at his MJ store in Munich Germany back on November 21. Here is some information from that interview:

About the upcoming Studio Album:
– it’s 2/3 of the way done. They hope to have it done by Christmas
– It’s like the Blackout and Love at First Sting Style but with a sound of 2009
– The new CD will be released in the first part of March 2010 in 49 countries. I’m not sure if North America will be at the same time. I have an email into Azoff to confirm this information. When i get a response i will post it on this site.
– James and Pawel will record their parts this month before and after the Poland shows planned December 5th and 6th.
– Title of the new CD which was already reported on this site will be “Sting in the Tail”
– There will be 12 songs on this new CD.
– No news on the cover of the CD.

About the upcoming International Press Conference:
– this will take place January 15th in Hannover, Germany
– they will discuss the new studio CD and the Two Year World Tour. Plus a huge announcement that they will not tell anyone before the January 15th press conference.

About the Two Year World Tour:
– Maybe more German Dates 7 confirmed right now, but maybe more later on in the year.
– The Scorpions will play between 280-300 shows in the Next Two years.
– They will play for the first time in their career Australia in 2010 or 2011.
– And yes for all North American fans a 3 month tour of North America is being planned for the Summer of 2010. Starting around the end of June and going through Labor Day Weekend. And yes the East Coast will be stung this summer. Matthias commented that since the World Cup is this summer then this would be the best time to do a full tour of North America. They are aware that Soccer is not that popular in our country.
– No information on any touring packages for the North American tour. That is being lined up as we speak. When we hear something it will be posted on this site.

I would like to thank Matthias for keeping the fans updated on all news concerning the Scorpions. He has been great to us at scorpsnews and with his recent interview with ELTON all Scorpions fans have alot to look forward to in 2010.

“2010 is shaping up to be the year of the Sting”

Happy Holidays to everyone around the World!!!!!!!
