Scorpions open the archives and issue 'Live in Munich 2012' Blu Ray

By Ruben Mosqueda // 'Live in Munich' captures Scorpions wrapping up the year [2012] in their native Germany in front of a capacity crowd.

If you haven’t had enough Scorpions on DVD or Blu-Ray with ‘Live at Wacken Open Air’ [2006], ‘Get Your Sting and Blackout-Live 2011’[2012], ‘Unbreakable World Tour 2004-One Night in Vienna’  [2005] and the deluxe edition of their last album ‘Return to Forever’ with two complete shows [2016]; here comes Eagle Rock Entertainment with ‘Live in Munich 2012’. The Blu-Ray captures Scorpions wrapping up the year [2012] in their native Germany in front of a capacity crowd.

‘Sting in the Tail’ [2010] was initially set to be the band’s last effort; the band would hit the road on a two year farewell tour. Scorpions made a stop at Ridgefield, WA in 2011 on that tour to a capacity crowd. ‘Live in Munich 2012’ features the stage set that the band brought to the Northwest on that tour. The Scorpions while getting up there in age; still put on an energetic show and ‘Live in Munich 2012’ document this.

"Live in Munich 2012' features all the usual suspects you'd expect in a Scorpions set list; "The Zoo," "Make It Real," Coast to Coast," "Loving You Sunday Morning," "Holiday," "No One Like You," "Still Loving You," "Blackout," their blockbuster international hit "Wind of Change" and the Scorpions' signature song "Rock You Like A Hurricane." In addition to other tracks the Scorpions mixed it up a little by including deeper cuts; "We'll Burn the Sky" and "When the Smoke is Going Down."  As far as Blu-Rays go this is a concert only, no extras, no bells or whistles; however the lack of additional content doesn't take away from 'Live in Munich 2012.' If you don't have any of the aforementioned [concerts] this would be a fantastic start to your Scorpions concert collection.
