(TRR) – Last night, vintage heavy rockers Scorpions kicked off their Crazy World Tour at the Santander Arena in Reading, PA. They were accompanied by very special guests Megadeth. The tour marks the beginning of the end for Scorpions, serving as their farewell trek across North America. The band was set to call it a day after their 50th anniversary run in 2015. Due to overwhelming demand from fans, Scorpions decided to give it one more go-around. Their last studio album, Return To Forever, was released in early 2015.
Megadeth are still riding the wave of their fifteenth studio effort Dystopia which dropped last January. The disc debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200, the band’s highest debut on the chart since 1992’s seminal Countdown To Extinction came in at #2. The album’s title track earned the band its first GRAMMY Award win for Best Metal Performance. Now, with the new addition of drummer Dirk Verbeuren and mainstays Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson alongside Kiko Loureiro, Megadeth remain a supremely tight live act. On this tour, their certainly the best “opening act” for your money.
