Rammstein Announces North American Tour

RAMMSTEIN announced today that they will bring their epic live show to 9 cities in North America throughout the month of May including the Tacoma Dome on May 15th.

The Berlin-based six-piece band, who immediately sold out two exclusive performances last December at the Bell Centre in Montreal and the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City, have not toured in North America since 2001.

Tickets for tour, produced by Live Nation, will go on sale to the general public Friday, February 25 and Saturday, February 26 and are available at Ticketmaster.com, and LiveNation.com.

“The success of the Rammstein song “Du Hast” in the U.S. was certainly one of the essential steps in our career”

-  Christoph Schneider (Drummer)

“We have waited 10 long years for the perfect opportunity to bring our full show to North America.  The time is now and we are excited to share this with our fans who have waited for so long.”

- Richard Z. Kruspe (Guitarist)

Rammstein first stormed America in 1998, touring with a set based on their Grammy-nominated breakthrough second release, Sehnsucht, featuring Du hast, the song that brought the world’s attention to the band. During their 1998 Family Values tour, praise was high, as well as indignation: band members were jailed in the US on indecency charges due to the highly provocative live show.

The band’s last tour of the US in 2001 was in support of the album Mutter, where they continued to explore societal and sexual taboos with a deft mix of sonic muscle and visual spectacle. Throughout the last decade they have found themselves embroiled in further controversy, incensing both the left and the right.  The band’s most recent album, Liebe ist für alle da (“Love is there for all”), moved the German government to ban its sale to minors shortly after release, only to have the order rescinded a few months later once the culture war was over. Meanwhile, there was no doubt about fans’ appreciation of the work: more than 16 million albums sold worldwide, #1 on many charts across Europe, and entrance on the Billboard Charts at #13 – the highest chart entry for Rammstein in the United States ever.

Rammstein began extensive touring last fall in support of Liebe ist für alle da. Their formidable live show traversed Europe in twenty 18-wheelers packed with pyrotechnics, flame-throwers, bazookas and enough ordnance to level a small country. The band played to sold-out crowds in 10,000+ seat venues, leading up to a summer filled with headlining slots on all the major European festivals.  In the fall, the band then moved on to Latin America to play in some cities for the first time in its history. Now, after successfully touring Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa at the end of their extensive tour, Rammstein will give their North American fans a taste of their now-legendary live show.
