The Scorpions will rock Los Angeles like a hurricane only one more time. The band will play their final Los Angeles show on Friday, June 22 at AEG's Staples Center. The concert is part of the Final Sting Tour, the group's goodbye tour after a four decade career that included over 100 million albums sold worldwide.

Their final tour is in support of their current album "Comeblack," released in the fall of 2011.

The band, based in Germany, is most known for its staples like “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “Wind Of Change” and “Still Loving You,” which comprise a catalogue consisting of both ballads and rockers.

The band, founded by axe slinger Rudolf Schenker in 1965, currently features the signature voice of Klaus Meine, Matthias Jabs on guitar, drummer James Kottak and Pawl Maciwoda on bass. A long list of musicians have played in the band during its long career, most notably guitarist Uli Jon Roth and bassist Francis Buchholz.

Tickets are now on sale for the final sting from the group. Prices range from $49.50 to $99.50.
