The event was held in celebration of the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth.
Singer Klaus Meine and guitarist Rudolf Schenker represented the Scorpions and accepted the award. They shared photos on social media and captioned them with, “What an honour to receive the wonderful EUROPEAN CULTURE AWARD 2021 in Bonn / Germany… Thank you so much …it was truly a Night to remember”.

Meanwhile, the legendary band completed their work on an upcoming album that’s slated for release in early 2022. It was recorded mostly at Peppermint Park Studios in Hannover, Germany and mixed at Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany. This release serves as a follow-up to 2017’s “Born To Touch Your Feelings – Best Of Rock Ballads”.
They were supposed to record the album in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman who previously worked with Metallica and Slipknot. But, the pandemic happened and they just did whatever they could to continue working on the record.
