ScorpionsForeverandaDay640 International rock superstars, Scorpions, continue to celebrate their 50th year in metal with a special one-night national screening event of their first theatrical release, the documentary film, Forever And A Day, Wednesday, October 14th. Watch a trailer below.

Presented by SpectiCast and Tempest Films, Forever And A Day captures the history of one of the most influential bands in music history – following them for 18 months with an insightful look into the dynamic that has kept them at the top of the metal community. Filmmaker Katja von Garnier accompanied the Scorpions on their Final Sting dates – originally the band’s farewell tour around the globe, from Bangkok via Los Angeles to Moscow, the resulting documentary Forever and a Day is a moving portrait of their unique history, packed with candid moments and Scorpions’ memories, culminating with the decision to scrap their retirement plans. Klaus Meine adds, “I think it’ll be a really special film for our fans.”

The title, Forever And A Day, outlines the philosophy Scorpions have internalized since their early days. In the Eighties of the past century, they wrapped it up in the slogan “Don‘t Stop At The Top” (allegorical: Never rest on your laurels). They simply are travelers, who always seek new challenges, overcoming all obstacles along the way.

Scorpions continue their global assault in support of their 19th studio album, Return to Forever (Sony Music/Legacy Recordings), just released September 11th, with North American dates (see below). For additional info please visit

  1. Klaus and Eddie talked about this on Eddie’s podcast that I heard today. The documentary should be very cool! I’m so happy Klaus and Rudolph changed their minds and decided to continue the band instead of retiring.

  2. In the early 80’s, I remember hearing “The Zoo” by the Scorps, and “Lights out” by UFO from a friends older brothers record collection, and I was hooked on German metal. He also provided my first exposure to “Diary of a Madman”, where I really understood the genius Randy Rhodes. The only guy who, at the time gave EVH a run for his money.
