Scorpions announce U.S farewell tour dates, including July 17 stop in Tampa



Germany's legendary Scorpions (not "the Scorpions" remember) have announced their final tour dates EVER for North America. And lucky for us here in Tampa, the tour includes a July 17 stop at the Ford Amphitheater (with RATT as the opening act!)

The "Farewell to America" tour begins in June in New Jersey and wraps up in August in Denver. Click here for all the dates.

Lead singer Klaus Meine recently announced that this would be the band's last album and tour, though it could take as long as three years for it all to wrap up.

Click here to listen to my interview with Klaus from a few years ago. And seriously, if you love the Scorps, don't forget their new album Sting in the Tail is out. I'm still listening to it and should have a review soon.

Tickets for the Tampa show go on sale April 16 at 10 a.m.
