Scorpions Reconsider Retirement
The band are simply going to scale back touringUltimate Classic Rock reports that the band have decided against fully retiring and will instead do something similar to Judas Priest, whereby they stop committing to large scale world tours.
"We called it the farewell tour thinking believing it would be the last time we would play,” explains guitarist Matthias Jabs, "but the tour is still going, due to demand from the audience.”
"The Scorpions will not break up.” he told AZCentral, "We’re giving up the constant touring - into the studio, out of the studio, back on the road.” Jabs continued, "There’s a routine of making an album and touring the world for two and a half years. We said, ‘Can we go in the studio in 2013, Klaus will be 65, and then do another world tour?’ It might get shaky.”Jabs then spoke of upcoming Scorps recording sessions. "We have a project which we will probably release next year. We have so much film material. We will work on something like an anthology, some kind of box set.”
