VIDEO: Scorpions launch North American tour in Boston

The Scorpions launched the North American leg of their 50th Anniversary Tour in Boston on September 10 and video from opening night has surfaced.

The show at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion saw the German rockers perform an 18-song of classic tracks and tunes from their latest album, “Return To Forever.”

An expanded edition of the project was issued on September 11 in North America following its European spring release.

The updated version includes seven bonus tracks and two exclusives: “Crazy Ride” and “One And One Is Three.”

On November 6, The Scorpions will revisit their past with expanded reissues of eight of their classic albums as part of a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Editions series.

Following previously announced plans to reissue 1977’s “Taken By Force” and 1978’s “Tokyo Tapes”, the group have added another five studio albums – “Lovedrive” (1979), “Animal Magnetism” (1980), “Blackout” (1982), “Love At First Sting” (1984) and “Savage Amusement” (1988) – and 1985’s “World Wide Live.”

In addition to dozens of unheard studio tracks and live recordings, all CD releases are equipped with extended booklets featuring rare photos and, single covers, backstage passes and additional liner notes, while five of the eight albums include a DVD with live concert footage, TV performances and interviews from the period.

The remastered LP formats are released on 180-gram vinyl in a sleeve replicating the first pressing. They also come with an audio CD, featuring the original track listing and the same bonus audio as the CD formats. A limited and numbered Deluxe Box Set will contain all remastered vinyl discs.
