This weekend I was in Sandviken to watch the Rockklassiker(Rockclassics) Live where you could witness Scorpions last gig on Swedish soil, a little strange feeling indeed, but on the other hand, this you have of course heard before, you know... bands that have played music all their life can't just stop like that, would not surprise me at all if you can see them on the road soon again. That these uncles can deliver a show that sounds good, well played, and contains an interesting show with a material that few bands can present live is a great achievement.

The fact that their show goes on a routine by now, setlist has probably looked the same the last few years, if not longer, I'm actually satisfied when the last notes rings out across the arena which besides was fully packed (sold out) with fans who wanted to take a last farewell.
Scorpions are probably well known by now, so no introduction is needed.
This is the setlist from the evening:
Sting in the Tail
Make It Real
Is There Anybody There?
Coast to Coast
Loving You Sunday Morning
The Best Is Yet to Come
Send Me an Angel
Raised on Rock
Tease Me Please Me
Hit Between the Eyes
Six String Sting
Big City Nights
Still Loving You
Wind of Change
Rock You Like a Hurricane
