Rammstein have cancelled their 2020 European stadium tour.

A statement on their website said: “Due to local event restrictions related to COVID-19, which now affect almost all planned dates, the band's 2020 stadium tour can unfortunately not take place.

“We are currently checking whether it is possible to reschedule the dates and will communicate any updates as soon as possible!

“All tickets will remain valid until then. 

“Thank you again for your understanding and patience.”

The European tour was due to begin on May 25 in Klagenfurt, Austria. The full list of dates that have been cancelled are below.

The band have not announced whether their US tour, due to start in late August, will go ahead.
