Scorpions have announced their early 2024 plans with a Las Vegas concert residency starting this April to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the German hard rock band's Love at First Sting, their ninth studio album and North American breakthrough from 1984.
From April 11–May 3, 2024, Scorpions will play nine dates at the Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip. Tickets go on sale Nov. 10, with Scorpions Rock Zone members getting exclusive access starting Nov. 6 at 10AM PT. Beyond the residency, Scorpions already have a summer festival date scheduled for Wacken Open Air 2024.
On Friday (Nov. 3), the band revealed, "Scorpions are returning to Bakkt Theater for 'Love at First Sting Las Vegas,' a brand new exclusive headlining residency show in celebration of the 40th anniversary of their iconic album, Love at First Sting, performing the album and all of their biggest hits April 11–May 3."
Love at First Sting is often cited as an influential album in the development of hard rock hair metal as it came to fruition in the 1980s. The effort's combination of heavy guitar riffs, melodic hooks and powerful ballads influenced many rock bands that followed.
Love at First Sting spawned the hard rock staples "Rock You Like a Hurricane," "Still Loving You" and "Big City Nights." Scorpions' latest LP, their 19th, Rock Believer, arrived in 2022.
