With almost 60 years on the world music stage, Scorpions have been one of the great icons of the era. The band has left a strong mark on heavy metal, hard rock, glam metal, and soft rock. Scorpions have inspired many of today’s rock stars with their music and style.
With a long list of hits, spectacular world tours, and decades of successful studio work, Scorpions have become a band that unites generations and increasingly appeals to younger music fans.
From their debut album Lonesome Crow (1972) to their most recent Rock Believer (2022), Scorpions have released nineteen albums that have sold nearly 120 million copies and played over 5,000 concerts worldwide, which makes them one of the best-selling rock artists. ‘Wind of Change’, ‘Still Loving You’, ‘Send Me an Angel’, and ‘Rock You Like a Hurricane’ are all universally acknowledged anthems of the music world and highlights of their era.
The band’s biggest commercial hit, ‘Wind of Change’ from Crazy World (1990), is one of the world’s best-selling songs, selling over 14 million copies worldwide. The song has become a harbinger of change for the whole world and one of the symbols of the fall of the Berlin Wall. To this day, it remains one of the most famous and influential songs in rock history and holds the record for the most successful single ever released by a German artist.
Scorpions kicked off the Rock Believer World Tour with a bang in Las Vegas, USA, where they played 9 consecutive concerts. The band, who have been delighting audiences with their cult tracks, also surprised fans with a new version of their legendary hit "Wind of Change" to show support for Ukraine.
In Las Vegas, Scorpions lead singer Klaus Meine replaced the first line of the song "Follow the Moskva down to Gorky Park" with "Now listen to my heart, it says Ukrainia". During the song, the stage lit up with the colours of the Ukrainian flag. Scorpions also showed their support for Ukraine at other concerts on this tour.
Rock Believer is the band's 19th studio album. and has been among the best-selling albums in a number of countries. It is the band's first studio effort since 2015's Return to Forever, breaking the longest gap between albums in the band's history.
Scorpions, one of the most famous and influential rock bands in the world, were formed in Germany in 1965 by guitarist Rudolf Schenker. Klaus Meine joined the band a few years later and it is exactly his unique voice that makes the songs of the band so recognisable. The band consists of Klaus Meine (vocals), Matthias Jabs (guitar), Rudolf Schenker (guitar), Mikkey Dee (drums) and Pawel Maciwoda (bass guitar).
It's been a decade since Scorpions last performed in Estonia and seven years since they rocked in Lithuania, so don't miss your chance to see these legends in action!
