After four decades and 100 million albums, the SCORPIONS embark on The Final Sting Tour marking their last and final performances together ever. The tour includes a stop at Reno Event Center on June 8th.
After the SCORPIONS had announced their leave and advertised their last tour, the most frequently asked question by journalists all over the world, was the one about a possible comeback. Their latest album “Comeblack,” released in November 2011, is a pun and a parody at the same time. Already a bit tongue-in-cheek – and a good deal self ironic- the idea for this album came up during the rockers’ impressive world tour. Overwhelmed by the success of "Sting in the Tail" and the farewell tour, the idea to go back to the studio was born out of pure excitement and screaming fans wherever they went. It was great to share the studio with Mikael and Martin again, going crazy with ideas for a new "project!"
Bookended by completely new productions of great SCORPIONS songs like “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “Wind Of Change” or “Still Loving You,” adapted to today’s technical standards, Meine, Schenker, Jabs & co. recorded songs in their very special way. Songs, which had enormous meaning to them during their career, and have since become milestones of musical history, like “Tin Soldier” by The Small Faces, “Ruby Tuesday” by The Rolling Stones or Marc Almond’s “Tainted Love.”
The Comeblack and the Final Sting tour is an encore for die-hard fans, to thank them for all the support for so many years. At the same time, this is a tribute to legendary bands from the sixties, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
