Rammstein have postponed their European stadium tour for a second time.
The tour, which had already been rescheduled from 2020 and was due to begin in Leipzig on May 29, 2021, has been rescheduled for 2022.
In a statement, the band said: “Due to the expected ongoing event-bans and restrictions related to COVID-19, Rammstein are unfortunately forced to postpone the planned European Stadium Tour again.
“The band and everyone involved are very disappointed about this. Given the lack of planning reliability for holding events of this size, this step is unavoidable.
The concerts are rescheduled to 2022. Unfortunately, some minor changes had to be made and the show in Belfast will be canceled entirely. Tickets for Belfast will be refunded, all other tickets remain valid!
“The band is using the time off to continue working on new songs. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!”
The rescheduled tour now begins in Leipzig on May 20, 2022 and runs though to August 3. The full dates are listed below.
Keyboard player Flake Lorenze recently revealed that the band have spent the past few months recording a brand new album.
“The fact that we couldn't perform live increased our creativity,” he told Motor.de. “We had more time to think of new things and less distraction. As a result, we recorded an album that we hadn't planned on."
