Scorpions to Release 3-D Concert DVD, Documentary and Covers Album
For a band that is on the precipice of retirement, the Scorpions sure are keeping busy, rocking fans like, you know, a hurricane. The band, who is wrapping its final world tour, will cap off their career with a 3-D concert DVD, a documentary spanning their 40-year career, and a covers album focusing on songs of the '60s. Vocalist Klaus Meine elaborated on the upcoming material to arabnews.com.
About the 3-D DVD: "Our newest project comes out in the next few months. It gives you a chance to experience The Scorpions in 3D. You can actually feel the smoke string out of the guitar like it is a live show. It is an incredible experience. The DVD features our concerts in 3D in Germany. We are just about to do the mix and it should be in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia hopefully soon. Indeed, the strong 3D technology makes us feel like pioneers after all these years."
About the documentary: "[It] also is soon to be released. We have cameras with us on tours, so this documentary is being made during our tours. It also gives you a picture of The Scorpions career and journey.
About the covers album: "We have an album coming out later this year featuring classics. You know our love for them. The '60s was the era for our inspiration."
About what's on his iPod: "Adele's 'Rolling In the Deep.' Powerful song." Okay, so that has nothing to do with the Scorps or their victory lap plans, but it was still interesting to learn that Meine is feeling the British neo-soul diva.
Meine also talks about his favorite tour destinations and why the band is retiring now. In short, he wants to go out on a high note, saying: "We want to make sure The Scorpions and their fans remember them at their peak."
