The Scorpions 2010 Tour News!
“Get USA Scorpions Tickets Early with Album Preorder - Special offer ends March 22.

This is the Scorpions’ farewell tour – see them in all their high-decibel, hard-rocking glory one last time!
Preorder the new and final album 'Sting in the Tail' on iTunes to get first dibs on tickets for the US portion of their epic 'Get Your Sting and Blackout World Tour.' Plus score the exclusive bonus track “Let’s Rock.” This is an iTunes exclusive offer; the album release is March 23rd.
Scorpions are saying goodbye after this final album and outing. They rocked the metal world for 40 years and sold more than 100 million records, but nowhere are they more aggressively ear-blitzing than on the stadium stage, still playing to head-banging sold-out crowds around the world.
