What to Do Tonight: Scorpions

Scorpions are making one last run before hanging it up for good — and they deserve the break. They recorded their first album, the progressive Lonesome Crow, in 1972. Since then, they’ve become heavy metal gods, peaking in the early ’80s with the hits “No One Like You,” “Rock You Like a Hurricane,” and “Still Loving You.” Their final studio album, Sting in the Tail, is a surprisingly strong effort, packed with hard-rock anthems and a few of the band’s trademark lighter-wavers. They even get a little meta (and a little creepy) in “Sly” about a girl named after “Still Loving You,” which was playing while she was conceived. The band plays Time Warner Cable Amphitheater at 8 p.m.. Tickets range from $25 to $65. — Phil Freeman
