Get ready to rage – Rammstein is returning to North America. What’s more, the German metal gods are making their first-ever U.S. stadium run.
The 2020 tour launches in August in Montreal, with stops at popular U.S. stadiums including Chicago’s Soldier Field, Gillette Stadium – home of the New England Patriots – in Foxborough, and San Antonio’s Alamodome.
Rammstein, which crossed over to the American metal scene with the 1997 hit “Du hast,” ended its decade-long album hiatus last year. The industrial metallers released their 7th studio album in May, which debuted at No. 9 on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts. The untitled album marks Rammstein’s first U.S. Top 10 appearance.
“The most extreme spectacle in live music,” according to a press release, the band is known for pyrotechnically-fueled shows. The tour will be the first time ever that Rammstein brings its full-scale production to the continent.
Rammstein teased fans on social media saying "Get ready, Amerika!” before announcing the North American tour. Unchanged since the band’s formation in 1994, Rammstein consists of frontman Till Lindemann, Christoph Schneider, Flake Lorenz, Oliver Reidel, Paul Landers, and Richard Z. Kruspe.
