Legendary Scorpions take their “The Crazy World Tour” to Sweden this fall and play in both Gothenburg and Stockholm, this will be their first tour in the Nordic region for many years and rumors say the stage show is bigger and better than ever.

Tickets for the two Sweden concerts will be released on Tuesday, June 13 at 9.00 am via Livenation.se.

More than 50 years have passed since the time when the young Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs walked on the streets of Hanover, who had just woken up after the paralysis of the post-war era, with a wheelbarrow filled with their instruments and amplifiers. Since then, Scorpions has become Germany’s, or rather one of Europe’s most successful rock bands throughout the ages. Countless bands including Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Grain and System of a Down have made cover versions of Scorpion’s songs over the years. “Rock You Like A Hurricane” has been interpreted over 150 times by different artists.

They were founded in Hanover, West Germany in 1965. Scorpions became part of the first metal wave of the 1970s with its 1972 debut album “Lonesome Crow”. The band then reached the arena level with the legendary albums “Love Drive”, “Virgin Killer” And “Animal Magnetism”. In the 1980s, Scorpions released a series of Billboard number one’s with “Love at First Sting” and “Blackout”, including several Top 10 singles with “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and “No One Like You” as well as a number of successful singles such as “Send Me An Angel”, “Still Loving You” and last but not least “Wind of Change”.

The iconic rock band has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and has won a lot of prizes and awards. In February 2015, Scorpions released the 19th studio album, “Return To Forever”, the same year the band celebrated its 50th anniversary. As if this were not enough, Scorpion’s drummer is no less than our own, and former Motörhead drummer, Mikkey Dee!
