In a new interview with Monsters, Madneses, And Magic, Scorpions vocalist Klaus Meine revealed the band is planning to tour in 2024 and 2025 for the group’s 60th Anniversary.
Meine said: “Well, we’re still out there with the ‘Rock Believer’ tour. It takes us around the world. And even though we have a little break right now, we keep going next year, we pick it up. And we might come back to the United States and a lot of other places we haven’t been on this tour so far and we keep going. And who knows if we go back to the studio at some point again. We never really talk about it. Right now, we’re still doing ‘Rock Believer’ tour and we enjoy it a lot.”
The German singer added: “There’s so many rock believers out there. When you think, so many people in all those years said rock is dead because of grunge, because of hip-hop, because of rap, whatever it is. But no, it’s not dead at all. There are millions of rock believers out there, and we can’t wait to see them in 2024 and in ’25, because it will mark the 60th anniversary of the SCORPIONS. That is something quite special. So right now, ’24, ’25 — next year we’re on the road, and we put it all together right now. And we can’t wait to see the rock believers out there again.“
Scorpions are one of the longest-running bands in rock history, along with The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys. The group was formed in Hannover in 1965.
Their latest album, “Rock Believer”, was released in February 2022. The LP was recorded primarily at Peppermint Park Studios in Hannover, Germany and was mixed at the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany with engineer Michael Ilbert.
