Formed in Hanover, Germany in 1965, The Scorpions have had a huge and long-lasting impact upon rock and metal as we know it today. The band changed genre throughout the course of their career, starting out from hard rock and then going more in the direction of melodic heavy metal, with the addition of classic rock power ballads. In 1990, their album “Crazy World,” was released, their best-selling after no less than 5 commercially successful albums released in the ten years prior. The album included the song “Winds Of Change,” an anthem reflecting on the political changes in Eastern Europe in the late 80s. It resonated with many and became one of the best-selling singles in the world, with sales of over 14 million.
Lead singer Klaus Meine spoke about the name of the tour, after their 991 album.“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 …After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour.”
