Scorpions stream documentary to mark World Wide Live 35th anniversary

The Scorpions are streaming a new, two-part mini-documentary feature on their 1985 release, “World Wide Live”, to mark its 35th anniversary on June 20.

The band recorded material for the live album while on the road in support of their ninth record, “Love At First Sting”; the project features songs from four US concert dates and shows in Paris, France and Cologne, Germany.

The live set featured the longtime Scorpions lineup of vocalist Klaus Meine, guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs, bassist Francis Bucholz and drummer Herman Rarebell.

“World Wide Live” was a top 10 album in multiple European countries – including the group’s German homeland – while reaching No. 17 on the US Billboard 200.

The Scorpions recently postponed their summer 2020 Las Vegas residency; the nine-show “Sin City Nights” series – with guests Queensryche – was scheduled to open July 4 at the Zappos Theater.
