Fan-filmed video footage of SCORPIONS entire November 1 concert at Olimpiyskiy Arena in Moscow, Russia can be seen below.
SCORPIONS were recently forced to cancel the remainder of their North American tour dates with MEGADETH after singer Klaus Meine was diagnosed with “severe laryngitis.” Klaus was advised by a top throat specialist in Los Angeles to rest his voice or risk permanent vocal damage.
SCORPIONS will release a new compilation album, “Born To Touch Your Feelings – Best Of Rock Ballads”, on November 24. The effort will include fourteen of the band’s most famous ballads plus three new songs which were recorded this past summer.
“Always Be With You”, the brand new song by Rudolf Schenker, is a deeply emotional declaration of love and story of change written by the guitarist/composer shortly after the birth of his youngest son. “Melrose Avenue”, named after one of the most famous strips in Los Angeles, is the most recent song of Matthias Jabs, its music perfectly capturing the enchanting sense of life in California.
The album features original artwork from photographer Ellen von Unwerth and production by Mikael Nord Andersson and Martin Hansen.
SCORPIONS‘ last release was 2015’s “Return To Forever”, partially comprising songs the band had in the vault from the ’80s. It was the final recorded appearance of SCORPIONS‘ longtime drummer James Kottak, who was dismissed from the band in September 2016 during his well-publicized his battle with alcoholism. He has since been replaced by MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee.
