German heavy metal band Scorpions are now crossing the globe on their farewell tour. This weekend they will make a stop in Montreal. Their goal will be to "Rock You Like a Hurricane" one last time.
Scorpions were huge in the 1980s and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. With their huge hit singles like "Winds of Change", "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and "Still Loving You" they were on or near the top of the charts for much of the 80s. Their mix of hard rock songs with power ballads won them fans in ever corner of the globe.
After 45 years together as a band they announced that they would tour one last time in support of their latest release, "Sting in the Tail", and then retire from the road. Though that will not be for a while as the tour is supposed to go until 2012 or 2013.
