World Wide Live is the second live album by German rock band Scorpions, originally released in June 1985 via Harvest Records in Europe and Mercury Records in the US.

Scorpions are a German rock band formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band's inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. The lineup from 1978–92 was the most successful incarnation of the group, and included Klaus Meine (vocals), Schenker (rhythm guitar), Matthias Jabs (lead guitar), Francis Buchholz (bass guitar), and Herman Rarebell (drums). The band's only constant member has been Schenker, although Meine has been the lead singer for all of the band's studio albums, and Jabs has been a consistent member since 1979.

 

The album was produced by Dieter Dierks and recorded at various concerts during their Love At First Sting World Tour as follows:

  • Sports Arena, San Diego, CA, USA (26 April 1984)
  • The Forum, Los Angeles, CA, USA (24 April 1984 & 25 April 1984)
  • Pacific Amphitheatre, Costa Mesa, CA, USA (28 April 1984)
  • Bercy, Paris, France (29 February 1984)
  • Sporthalle, Cologne, West Germany (17 November 1984)

The live album was originally released as a double album 2LP vinyl set and on cassette together with a VHS of live footage for 11 songs.

The members of Scorpions that recorded this live album were:

  • Klaus Meine – lead vocals
  • Matthias Jabs – lead guitar, backing vocals
  • Rudolf Schenker – rhythm guitar, backing vocals
  • Francis Buchholz – bass, backing vocals
  • Herman Rarebell – drums, backing vocals

Many critics regard this live album as one of the best released by the band and an essential inclusion in any Scorpion fan record collection. It showcases the band at their peak during the early 1980s.

The album peaked at #17 on the US Billboard 200 Albums chart and also reached #4 on the German and #18 on the UK Albums charts.

Five singles were released from the live album:  No One Like You ; Loving You Sunday Morning ; Big City Nights ; Still Loving You and Holiday.
