Acoustica is a 2001 unplugged album by German heavy metal band Scorpions.
Acoustica was recorded during three concerts, at Convento do Beato, Lisbon, Portugal, in February 2001. It was a most unusual set for the band, as Klaus Meine comments on the DVD. The band was supported by female backing vocalists, a percussionist, an extra guitarist and Christian Kolonovits (who had worked with the band as conductor and arranger on the Moment of Glory album) on keyboards. He also collaborated on rearranging the songs for the acoustic set. The band performed four new songs: "Life is too Short", "Back to You", "I Wanted to Cry" and "When Love Kills Love", which was released as single. All the new songs were featured on the DVD, while "Back to You" and five others were not omitted from the CD.
Acoustica also contains cover versions of songs such as The Cars' "Drive", Kansas' "Dust in the Wind" and the Queen hit "Love of My Life".
In 2003, an official 'Platinum Edition' was released by Warner Music Thailand, which coupled the original CD with a VCD. The VCD featured behind the scenes and rehearsal footage and a band interview, conducted in English by a Thai television crew.
The album attained gold status in Brazil, and the DVD attained platinum status.
