The Scorpions will release the documentary, “Forever And A Day”, on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital platforms on November 27.
Originally screened last week in cinemas, the project sees filmmaker Katja von Garnier accompany the group on what was originally intended to be their farewell tour, following them on the road from Bangkok to Moscow to capture candid moments, memories and live footage.
The Scorpions eventually changed their minds, returned to the studio to record a new album, “Return To Forever”, and hit the road for a 50th anniversary tour.
"Seeing all these old fans, the new fans coming,” says guitarist Rudolf Schenker, "everything was sold out, and getting told by the fans what the music means for them, then we more and more”, understood that the time wasn't right for the band to retire."
The November release will be issued in German with English subtitles.
The Scorpions recently wrapped up the North American leg of their 50th Anniversary Tour and will begin a series of European shows in Rome, Italy on November 9.
The group has cancelled plans for a 50th anniversary club show in Berlin on November 3 due to technical issues.
