German pyromaniac nu-metal band Rammstein have sold over 15 million records worldwide and since their formation in 1994, the band has had not one change in their line-up nor have they had anyone leave the band.
For anyone who has seen Rammstein live, you may be familiar with the saying “Other bands play, Rammstein burns!” - they're renowned for their hugely over-the-top stage shows using so many pyrotechnics that on occasion fans have been carried out of live shows suffering from heat exhaustion! On other occasions lighting gantries have been seen glowing red-hot from repeated blasts of fireball!
Following their stint as headliners for Download Festival 2016, Rammstein returned for more headline shows around the US, UK and Europe (alongside Korn and Stone Sour), as well as some festival shows.
Rammstein have announced a massive European tour in 2019 with one UK date at Milton Keynes’ Stadium MK in July. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
I saw Rammstein at the Download festival at Donington park in 2013. It turned out to be the perfect fathers day gift. From the moment that I got through the security checks the atmosphere of the event rose up and hit me square in the chest. I walked down a long slope into the main field and I was overwhelmed by a feeling of total calm. It was like walking into another world. Even though there was the constant sound of all kinds of music coming from all directions it just felt like so peaceful.I spent the day checking out new bands, browsing through the many stalls and just getting the amazing smells from all the food vendors. The day moved along at a nice slow pace, and I managed to see a few good bands, Ghost being a particularly good one. Then before I knew it, Thirty Seconds To Mars were performing their set. I knew I now had to get as near to the main stage as I could, because Rammstein were coming up next. The crowd were in quite a frenzy when Rammstein opened their set. And what an opening!...Till Lindemann, the lead singer, came on to the stage standing on top of a flaming platform that was lowered from the rafters. Some of their popular songs like, SONNE DU HAST and ASCHE DU ASCHE were played and the hardcore fans were singing along to every one. First time fans were left gasping at their new heroes. The whole set was a mixture of great music, pyrotechnics and just pure theatre. The set came to an end, and hundreds of fans nearest to the stage were sprayed with foam during the song PUSSY.I went home that night totally buzzing from the days events and the sheer power and musical ability of the German rockers. I also made a lot of friends that night...90 thousand Downloaders. It was probably the greatest musical experience of my life...something that I would recommend to everybody.
