RAMMSTEIN announced today their only U.S. live performance at Madison Square Garden in New York City is scheduled for Saturday, December 11, 2010. This will be the only US show by the Berlin-based six-piece band, who has not performed in the United States since 2001.

Bassist Oliver Riedel comments: “Everything for this show is perfect – the timing, the season. We are really pumped to return to the States to play Madison Square Garden – this is one of the most challenging shows for us in 10 years.”

Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, October 8th at noon and available at ticketmaster.com and thegarden.com.

Here are the latest Rammstein tour dates:

November 25 - Santiago, Chile
November 27 - Buenos Aires, Argentina
November 30 - Sao Paulo, Brazil
December 3 - Bogota, Colombia
December 6 - Mexico City, Mexico (Sold Out)
December 7 – Mexico City, Mexico
December 11 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden

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.

Agreed, I think their latest album is pretty horrible, apart from 3 tracks (Ich tu dir weh, Waidmanns heil and Bückstabü). Every album they've made is worse than the previous one, frankly said. They peaked with Mutter, and it's been downhill ever since.

Well, Rammstein's never really been doing long tours, but I wonder why there's only one US show. What I do know for fact is Rammstein has received quite a lot of treaths over the Columbine shootings, even now. You know how it goes; "that evil foreign influence" thing. So, maybe that's the reason, who knows.
