Scorpions are to hit the road in September and October on a sixteen date North American, dubbed the 'Crazy World' tour with very special guests Megadeth, apart from the dates ih Laval and Chicagi.

Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine said: "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.

"Now, twenty-six 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."

Tour dates are:

September 14th: Reading, PA - Santander Arena
September 16th: New York, NY - Madison Square Garden
September 19th: Laval, QC - Place Bell (no Megadeth; support to be announced)
September 22nd: Toronto, ONT - Budweiser Stage Amphitheater

September 26th: Denver, CO - 1st Bank Center
September 29th: Spokane, WA - Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena

October 11th: San Antonio, TX - Freeman Coliseum
October 12th: Dallas, TX - Pavilion at The Music Factory

October 15th: Tampa, FL - Amalie Arena

Megadeth have spent more than a year on the road promoting their latest album, 'Dystopia', which was released in January 2016. The group are currently scheduled to head back out on tour at the end of April, with three US festival appearances penciled in for July and a headlining appearance at Bloodstock in August.

Dave Mustaine recently told Meltdown of the WRIF radio station in Detroit, Michigan:

"Believe it or not, we've got some cool things going on for the States. We've got two really great things we're gonna be doing. We'll be heading out some part of the spring or summer, and then we just were told about an opportunity at the end of the year that really, really excited me.

"It's somebody I've never played with before that we're actually gonna be supporting. They were so cool that we would step down from being a headliner to support this group."

Scorpions drummer Mikkey Dee confirmed to us back in January (here) that the German titans are to release a brand new studio album in early 2018 and continue rocking global audiences.

Mikkey told a press conference at the Hall Of Heavy Metal History induction ceremony that The Scorps, who celebrated fifty years of existence with one of their biggest tours ever last year, have already started working on new music and the forthcoming songs are as exciting and as vibrant as ever, just as you would expect.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
