The Scorpions announced on their web site that they plan to break up after the release of their next album and tour.
Their next album, “Sting of the Tail” is set to be released on March 19, 2010. They are going to begin their next tour in their home country of Germany, and will travel to five different continents over the next few years.
The band formed in 1965, and released several albums throughout the 70’s. But they began their commercial success in the 80’s, with the album Love at First Sting. “Rock You Like a Hurricane” was a huge hit on MTV.
Their biggest hit was “Wind of Change“, which celebrated the end of communism in Eastern Europe.
