“Everything the Scorpions touch turns to gold, just like their MTV Unplugged album now,” said Manfred Rolef, Vice President AOR Label Group GSA. “We are happy to have reached gold status and are now heading towards platinum! We would also like to thank MTV Europe and the media group RTL Music for Millions for the great collaboration.”

“The collaboration of all parties involved in this exceptional MTV Unplugged project was very intense,” added Mara Ridder-Reichert, Director Talent & Music Northern Europe MTV, VIVA, VH-1, TMF. “MTV and the Scorpions both are worldwide brands, which managed to make the MTV Unplugged of a German band successful all over the world. We can build on this success now.”
