Scorpions are to hit the road in September and October on a sixteen date North American, dubbed the 'Crazy World' tour with very special guests Megadeth, apart from the dates ih Laval and Chicagi.
Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine said: "When our album 'Crazy World' was released back in 91, right at the end of the Cold War, we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future.
"Now, twenty-six years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years, 'Crazy World' is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you out there."

Megadeth have spent more than a year on the road promoting their latest album, 'Dystopia', which was released in January 2016. The group are currently scheduled to head back out on tour at the end of April, with three US festival appearances penciled in for July and a headlining appearance at Bloodstock in August.
Dave Mustaine recently told Meltdown of the WRIF radio station in Detroit, Michigan:
"Believe it or not, we've got some cool things going on for the States. We've got two really great things we're gonna be doing. We'll be heading out some part of the spring or summer, and then we just were told about an opportunity at the end of the year that really, really excited me.
"It's somebody I've never played with before that we're actually gonna be supporting. They were so cool that we would step down from being a headliner to support this group."
Scorpions drummer Mikkey Dee confirmed to us back in January (here) that the German titans are to release a brand new studio album in early 2018 and continue rocking global audiences.
Mikkey told a press conference at the Hall Of Heavy Metal History induction ceremony that The Scorps, who celebrated fifty years of existence with one of their biggest tours ever last year, have already started working on new music and the forthcoming songs are as exciting and as vibrant as ever, just as you would expect.
