Scorpions, Queensrÿche to perform on Lake Tahoe South Shore

Legendary rock group Scorpions takes the stage Friday, Aug. 31, at Harveys Lake Tahoe.

Many bands go their entire career without having a commercially successful song. Scorpions is not one of those bands.

Formed in the mid '60s, the band was once of the early pioneers in metal. The group started to find success in the '70s, but it wasn't until the 1980s that Scorpions release a series of iconic songs that cemented the band's place in rock history.

Those hits include "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "No One Like You."

Hailing from Germany, Scorpions has notched more than a few notable achievements over the past five decades. The band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and flawlessly executed quite a few memorable performance on the global stage.

"Countless silver, gold and platinum awards are only one side of the Scorpions' history," states the band's online bio. "Another is their unabated desire to travel. No other rock band of their caliber after so many years takes to the stage as often as the Hannover natives. They have played thousands of concerts in all corners of the planet: in Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Moscow, Washington, Dubai, Paris or Berlin.

"In 1988, they were the first Western rock band to play sold-­out shows five days in a row in the then still Soviet Leningrad. Pioneering achievements elsewhere as well: through very early concerts in China and Southeast Asia, they have opened doors for many other Western bands."
