The band played an exclusive warm-up gig in Lithuania over the weekend
Last night, Rammstein played a warm-up gig ahead of their summer European stadium tour. The show was attended exclusively by members of the band’s LIFAD Community fan club. The band played a 21-song set, complete with their full production and stage attire. One of the tunes they dusted off was “Bestrafe mich” (“Punish Me”) from their watershed sophomore album Sehnsucht (Longing). The LP came out in 1997, and the Rammstein haven’t touched the track since 2001. Watch a video of the performance below.
Rammstein’s European stadium tour begins tonight at Vingio Parkas in Lithuania. The run will see the band perform in Finland, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Spain, and more before wrapping up on August 4 at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels, Belgium. Tickets are on sale now HERE.
The industrial metal titans released their eight studio album Zeit (Universal) last April. The record peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart. The album topped the charts in several countries, including the band’s native Germany.
