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.

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.

I saw them on family values, they put on a great show. But I will never see them again, because the simple fact that I came to see a rock show, not a gay porno! While the pyro is cool, the whole fa**ot sh** needs to go!

^ He wears a fake d*** and walks his keyboardist around on a leash. Makes him suck it and "looks" like hes f***ing him with it. Then fake ejaculates all over the crowd!

thats hilarious. it's probably just a gimmick though like "oh I cant believe they did that"

that's the same as Oderus from Gwar fake jizzing all over the crowd, though.
