New article

June 30, 2001

There is a new article that is basically Richard talking over at Mysanantonio.com. He talks about how they can't do the full effects for their shows in the US right now, but they want to come back again in October and do more shows so they can. The article seems to emphasize that Richard writes most, if not all of the songs.

UPDATE: They are not canceling the current shows. They are just going to come back and do more. Apparently the way I worded that was confusing some people.

Thanks to: Ed.

Selma reviews

June 29, 2001

The two reviews that I have been sent are now up in the concerts section. The tracklisting and theatrics seem to be basically the same as in Europe. Interestingly...Till seems to now have a mohawk!

June 19, 2001

The date for the Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre, while not confirmed by Rammstein's management, looks pretty sure. Check out the concerts information and click the Information link by it for more information.

Thanks to: Tyler and James.


June 18, 2001

An information link has been added for almost all concerts (minus on that is unconfirmed and another Mexican one).

ticket This ticket scan was sent in to me earlier today. So yes, Rammstein is going to be in Mexico right after America.

On a side note, whoever can get me backstage at the Seattle or Portland shows will get a cookie.

Band of the week and a contest

June 13, 2001

Rammstein at the Band of the Week at Artist Direct. No big deal really, but they are running a contest to win a trip to New York to see Rammstein play at the Hammerstein Ballroom on July 18th, and an autographed copy of Mutter.

Rammstein's statement

June 11, 2001

"Rammstein were unable to play their show yesterday at the Astoria in London due to significant restrictions to their stageshow and pyrotechnics. The band feel it would be unfair to their fans, to see a show that would have become highly compromised. If these issues can be resolved the band promises to return to the UK later in the year for live shows. Rammstein apologize for letting their fans down due to a problem which was out of their hands."

This can be read on the front page of their site now.

Thanks to: Stuart Affleck.

Astoria canceled

June 10, 2001

SpaceK0rd writes in:"Rammstein pulled their show at the Astoria in London tonight (just got back home) due to pyrotechnical fuck-ups. A rep. from the Rammstein party came out to inform us that they would be rescheduling the show, but when... we dunno! Loads of rumours were circulating that the venue itself told Rammstein at the last minute that they could not use their pyro's and therefore the band refused to go on stage even though they had informed them of what their set consists of. The story was that the Astoria miss translated the letter from Rammstein, therefore thinking that the set was not as what it is. But as far as rumours go..."

I feel sorry for you guys that were waiting at the door. Hopefully it gets rescheduled soon, but their schedule seems tight for the next few months.

Thanks to: SpaceK0rd.

Discography updated

June 9, 2001

The DVD and CD for Links 2 3 4 have both been added to the discography. Interestingly, "Halleluja" is not the same mix as the one that appeared on the second CD of the limited edition of Mutter. The intro is a little different (background noise was added), a new bass line was added, and little other things here and there.

Apparently Crossbreed and Godhead with both be opening up for Rammstein for their tour in North America.
