KNAC.com – According to the official statement posted at the link, the Scorpions are releasing one final album and following it up with a tour. And that’ll be that.
I can remember when these guys were playing sold-out shows in stadiums all across the country. Seems surreal that they will be calling it quits soon. Although soon might be a bit of stretch since they’ve allowed for ‘several years’ of touring to support the new album.
As sad as I am to hear such talk of a final tour, I hope they do make it a true ‘final’ tour. Don’t pull a KISS and have a series of ‘final tours’ followed by hired guns to fill in for founding band members. Go out with your guns blazing, I say.
And bring the tour to Columbus so I can see you once more.
