The last month, Megadeth’s frontman Dave Mustaine explained that they were going on a tour with a band they had never played together before. He did not explain what the band was, but we thought it was Scorpions. And the expected official announcement was made.

German legend Scorpions have announced the first series of dates for a 2017 North American tour that will feature thrash metal legends Megadeth as their special guests. They commented:

“When our album Crazy World was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war,” explains singer Klaus Meine, “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 26 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.”
