Scorpions and Megadeth Announce 2017 ‘Crazy World’ North American Tour
Scorpions and Megadeth will take to the road together this fall. The bands announced a month of dates in arenas across North American titled after Scorpions’ hit album Crazy World. As singer Klaus Meine noted, it’s an apt name, given the times in which we live.
“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,” he said. “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.”
They’ll begin on Sept. 14 at the Santander Arena in Reading, Pa., and wind it up at Tampa’s Amalie Arena on Oct. 15. You can see the current itinerary below; more shows are expected to be announced soon.
Full details regarding tickets have yet to be announced. However, members of the Rock Zone fan club will have first access to tickets and VIP packages via pre-sale. Check the tour section of Scorpions’ website for complete information.
