Timeless Rock Icons, Scorpions, are set to Light up the Etihad Arena – Yas Island, Abu Dhabi in May

Brace yourself for a historic musical odyssey as Scorpions, the renowned German rock band, are set to arrive in Abu Dhabi on May 17th as part of their 2024 “Love at First Sting” world tour.

Formed in 1965 in Hanover, Germany, the hard rock and heavy metal band's success has been marked by several chart-topping hits, achieving over 120 million records sold and surpassing 1 billion views on YouTube for their single “Wind of Change”.

Boasting a history that spans nearly 60 years, the band has seen many different line-ups of rock and metal legends, but some of its early members still perform with the five-piece to this day. Scorpions’ original members include Rudolf Schenker, the founder, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter, Klaus Meine, the lead singer who joined in 1970 and was recognised as one of the world’s “Top Heavy Metal Vocalists” in 2006 by the Hit Parader magazine, and Matthias Jabs on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Other members who have also joined the group in recent years include the bassist Paweł Mąciwoda in 2003, and the drummer Mikkey Dee in 2016.

This upcoming tour will mark the 40th anniversary of their classic “Love at First Sting” album. Released in 1984, this album contains some of Scorpions’ most successful songs, combining heavy metal, hard rock, and glam metal with lyrics that remain enduringly relatable and remembered by fans to this day. To celebrate their iconic album, Scorpions will set the stage ablaze with a whole host of smash hits including “Still Loving You”,“Big City Nights”, and much more.
