Rock News for Tuesday 13th April, 2010

More Scorpions farewell tour dates added, leaked by Pollstar

It seems that German rockers, The Scorpions are being good to their word with their previous statement of 30+ tour dates in North America on their farewell tour, in support of final album, 'Sting In The Tail.'
Maybe not quite 30 yet, but a few more dates have been leaked by Pollstar that do not / have not yet been shown on the bands own website.
It also seems that it's not just the aforementioned Dokken and Cinderella opening, as Ratt and Tesla have also been picked to open on select dates.

The additional Scorpions North American dates are in Guilford, NH,  Clarkston, MI, Pittsburgh and Nashville as well.
