Now this was an exciting bit of touring news. It started making the rounds yesterday but it’s never too late to be stoked for a tour that finds a headlining Scorpions and a support from Megadeth. I didn’t receive a typical Press Release though for this one and instead was using the information posted to the bands Official Facebook. I guess that is how it’s done more and more nowadays. Check it out.
The Press Release:
SCORPIONS announce their North American Crazy World Tour with Very Special Guest Megadeth. Since performing a handful of festivals and concerts last year in the U.S., the band will return to North America for a month-long run of dates.
“When our album Crazy World was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war, we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future. Now 26 years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you out there,” states Klaus Meine.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m thinking that I don’t really need to expand on this one all that much since the Scorpions are always capable of delivering a solid show and it seems as though they never did keep to that farewell tour plan. I caught them about a year ago and it was a night loaded with the songs I grew up on. Megadeth of course is still an on fire live act and the no longer new members of Dirk and Kiko joining Dave and Dave are working Metal wonders. I’m glad to find this one coming to MSG in NYC and I am making plans now on being a part of this one. What do you readers think about this tour? Will you go or does it not suit your fancy. Let me know down in the comments below as always.
