The Scorpions honored with Germany’s Steiger Award

The Scorpions were awarded the Steiger Award on Saturday in Bochum, Germany.

The international award was established in 2005 and presented annually by the award organization based in Bochum. The title translates as The Miner, and reflects the qualities of responsibility, honesty, openness and hard work valued in the North Rhine Westphalia region where the award is presented.

“Thanks a lot for the Steiger Award 2013!!!,” posted the band. “We feel honored!”

Formed in 1965, The Scorpions released their debut, “Lonseome Crow”, in 1972 and have gone on to sell more than 180 million albums worldwide.

The German rockers will release “MTV Unplugged - Scorpions Live In Athens” in Europe on November 29th.

The package will be available on CD, DVD and Blu-ray disc.

Last month, the band performed three MTV Unplugged concerts in Athens, Greece at the city’s Lycabettus Theatre.
