“When our album Crazy World was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war, we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future. Now 27 years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our world tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you out there,” states Klaus Meine.
In November 2017, the band released their ballads compilation Born to Touch Your Feelings (Best of the Rock Ballads) via Sony Music which included two new songs “Melrose Avenue” and “Always Be With You”, as well as an acoustic version of “Send Me an Angel”.
