Scorpions to record MTV Unplugged concerts for release



The Scorpions have announced that they will record an MTV Unplugged concert special in Athens, Greece this fall for release at the end of the year.

The German rockers will perform three shows under the open skies at the Lycabettus Theatre in Athens – set for September 11, 12, and 14 – playing their biggest hits, album classics and some exclusive new songs.

"MTV Unplugged was already top on our wish list and therefore we have tour gladly accepted the offer during the farewell,” said the band. “We are 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. MTV will world premiere the event, while the shows will be broadcast for free in Germany by VIVA.

On January 24, 2010, after 45 years of performing, The Scorpions announced that they would be retiring after touring in support of their new album at the time, “Sting In The Tail,” although this decision was eventually retracted and the band will continue.
