On September 11, September 12 and September 14, German hard rock legends SCORPIONS played three concerts in Athens, Greece under the banner “MTV Unplugged – Scorpions Live In Athens” at the Lycabettus Theatre over the roofs of the ancient city. For the first time in the history of the “MTV Unplugged” series, a concert in Greece under the open sky took place.

SCORPIONS performed their biggest hits, album classics as well as some exclusive new songs in the typical sound and arrangement of “MTV Unplugged”. They were supported by national and international surprise guests.

Fan-filmed video footage of the September 12 concert can be seen below.

“MTV Unplugged – Scorpions Live In Athens” will be released at the end of 2013 on CD, DVD and Blu-ray disc. In addition, the performance will be premiered on MTV and VIVA in Germany.

SCORPIONS recently spent time in the studio with producers Mikael “Nord” Andersson and Martin Hansen resurrecting a dozen unfinished songs from what some people believe was the band’s best and most creative period — leftovers from the albums “Blackout” (1982), “Love At First Sting” (1984), “Savage Amusement” (1988) and “Crazy World” (1990) — for an album that is tentatively scheduled for release next year.

Rudolf Schenker, guitarist and founding member of German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS, recently spoke to Gibson about the strangest shows his band has ever had. Check out the chat below.

On September 11, September 12 and September 14, SCORPIONS will play three concerts in Athens, Greece under the banner “MTV Unplugged – Scorpions Live In Athens” at the Lycabettus Theatre over the roofs of the ancient city. For the first time in the history of the “MTV Unplugged” series, a concert in Greece under the open sky will take place.

The SCORPIONS will perform their biggest hits, album classics as well as some exclusive new songs in the typical sound and arrangement of “MTV Unplugged”. They will be supported by national and international surprise guests, to be announced at a later date.

Says the band: “‘MTV Unplugged’ was already top on our wish list and therefore we have gladly accepted the offer to stage these concerts as part of our farewell tour. We are [happy to be working] together with MTV on this very special event in Athens.”

“MTV Unplugged – Scorpions Live In Athens” will be released at the end of 2013 on CD, DVD and Blu-ray disc. In addition, the performance will be premiered on MTV and VIVA in Germany.

SCORPIONS spent the first three months of 2012 in the studio with producers Mikael “Nord” Andersson and Martin Hansen resurrecting a dozen unfinished songs from what some people believe was the band’s best and most creative period — leftovers from the albums “Blackout” (1982), “Love At First Sting” (1984), “Savage Amusement” (1988) and “Crazy World” (1990) — for an album that is tentatively scheduled for release later this year. “It will be material that was never finished; songs with pure SCORPIONS DNA from a very exciting time,” singer Klaus Meine confirmed to Classic Rock. “Once we close the book on the crazy touring schedule, that’s something we’ll pick up again.” An album of all-new SCORPIONS material may surface as well, according to Meine. “At this point nothing is out of the question,” he said. “When we said adios with ‘Sting In The Tail’, our label, Sony Music, cried, ‘No, no, no… What about this idea? What about that idea?’ There are some offers you just can’t refuse. I don’t want to say too much right now, but I can reassure you there is still life in those bloody old SCORPIONS.”

I am back folks! I have made an effort to sort of “unplug” from the Internet for a few days during the Holiday season so I could spend it with family and friends. I know all of you are waiting in eager anticipation for what AMR will write next (or loading up on X-mas leftovers), but no worries, for I am breaking out my best of 2009 list this evening, as well as some reviews I have been putting off for awhile. Once again though, I hope everyone had a good time over the extended (for most) weekend, and let’s look forth to the coming year of heavy metal!
