Rammstein sells out Madison Square Garden in 30 minutes
As first reported on The Gauntlet last Friday, Tickets sold out in only thirty minutes for the legendary German band RAMMSTEIN's December 11th performance at the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden in New York City. This will be the only US show by the Berlin-based six-piece band, who have not performed in the United States since 2001. The show was announced September 27th, tickets went on sale for the show Friday, October 8th at Noon Eastern and before an hour passed, tickets were officially sold out. This makes RAMMSTEIN the first German band in history to accomplish such a feat.
The band's appearance at the Quebec City Summer Festival in July 2010 already lured thousands of US fans to cross the border into Canada and since last fall, RAMMSTEIN's formidable live show traversed Europe in twenty 18-wheelers packed with pyrotechnics, flame-throwers, bazookas and enough ordnance to level a small country.
Rammstein first stormed America in 1998, touring with a set based on their Grammy-nominated breakthrough second release, Sehnsucht, featuring "Du hast," the song prominently featured in David Lynch's film, Lost Highway.
The band's most recent album, Liebe ist für alle da ("Love is there for all"), was released in November 2009 and hit #1 on many charts across Europe, and entered on the Billboard Charts at #13 - the highest chart entry for Rammstein in the United States ever - and boosted their worldwide catalog to over 16 million albums sold.
