But on New Year’s Eve, the band around front singer Till Lindemann wants to top it all off – with a gigantic concert.
Loud music and lots of fire. Rammstein is known for its extraordinary stage show. Now, however, the band is planning an event that is unusual even for them: an XXL New Year’s Eve concert in Germany.

The mega-event is also to be broadcast live on television across Europe. The XXL show is scheduled for December 31st. start at 8 p.m. The band around front singer Till Lindemann wants to heat up their fans for 4 hours – until the countdown to the new year starts. The city of Munich still has to approve the mega concert. If not, a venue in NRW is the second option.
However, there hasn’t been an official announcement from the band or management yet. According to information from the German Press Agency, the city council wants to deal with an application on August 10th. According to the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”, the band has applied for a concert at the turn of the year in front of 145,000 spectators on the Theresienwiese.
