RAMMSTEIN will bring their brand new live production to North America this spring for 21 dates kicking off April 20 in Ft. Lauderdale. Tickets for the tour, presented by Live Nation, will go on sale beginning Friday, Nov. 18 and will be available at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Demand for Rammstein's pyrotechnic-laden performances has been so great in Europe, where they regularly play capacity level soccer stadiums, the band spent nearly a full decade without setting foot on North American shores. In December 2010, the sextet returned to North America for two sold out shows including a performance at Madison Square Garden. Rammstein followed with a 9-day trek of major North American cities in Spring 2011.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of news of the band's first retrospective release, "Made In Germany 1995 - 2011," which will be available in North America (through a distribution deal between Universal Germany and Vagrant Records) on Dec. 13. Rammstein recently released "Mein Land," a new four-track digital single that features two new songs: the title track and "Vergiss uns Nicht" as well as remixes from BossHoss and Mogwai. A video directed by Jonas Akerlund for "Mein Land" can be seen here. Rammstein's most recent full-length album, "Liebe Ist Für Alle Da," debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 in October 2009.

ah sh!t, busted!! :)

brother Brun, its nothing so specific about Anaheim; its just that for a sh!tkickin country bumpkin like me, the greater LA area represents a living nightmare for me...frikken people EVERYwhere, like a dang plague of bipedal varmits...have I ever mentioned that I generally find folks irritating? ;)

Anyway, I hate Hollywood even more than anywhere in your county except Irvine, but for shows, at least its on the right side of the Smog for me

but hell, if I ever get down there, we'll get us some Brats, Biers, and Burritos and I'll do my very best to keep from going off on a hayride :)

Cheapest tickets I saw were 65 bucks, which means like 80ish after all the fees and stuff... There's no way I'm not going to see them though, anybody know what the opening band(s) are going to be?
