Rammstein’s First, Only, UK Show ...

Having been a HUGE Rammstein fan for many years, finally for us UK fans the moment has arrived: Rammstein’s first EVER UK appearance, and the only one this year, this Saturday on the Apollo stage at Knebworth. Tickets sold out months ago, I got mine in February.

Knebworth really has come along as a venue since I saw Led Zep there in the 80’s. This weekend Sonisphere festival may not rival Glastonbury in size but it does in quality - Iron Maiden, Placebo, Anthrax, Alice in Chains, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, The Cult, Slayer, Pendulum, many more you’ve probably heard of - but headlining it all - Saturday night - is Rammstein.


They’re not to everyone’s taste (industrial metal with pyrotechnics, angle grinders and gruff lyrics belted out in German) but they are true musicians, and true performers. Their stage shows have become legendary, and now after seeing them only on DVD we in the UK get to see them for real.

Oh, It’s going to be epic.
