Yesterday was the second time for me to witness Rammstein live, last time was pretty much exactly two years ago (2010) at the same venue in Stockholm on the Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da Tour, from that show i have only found memories so i was anticipative to see if they could top that show… well they did.
But before the show started Rammstein also held a signing session at a recordstore in the city and offcourse we were not going to miss that opportunity to meet with the band, said and done when we arrived it was already ALOT of people in line, and this was about one hour before the signings to begin, the session was about to last for one and a half hour, and we got in after waiting in total about two hours, since it was so many people who was in line, we only could get one item signed per person, so i got my Reise Reise Cd signed by them all. Sadly not everyone who waited in line got the chance to meet with the band, but lucky for us we did!
The show started a few hours after the signing took place, opened up for the band was Deathstars, wich did a good job, but still it was pretty clear that everyone was there for Rammstein, and about an hour after the opening act have finnished off they entered the stage, and what an entrance, must be one of the coolest entrance a band have ever done! (see clip below) The show had about everything you could wish for in a Rammstein concert and since this tour is a greatest hits tour (Made In Germany Tour) you got exactly that, the hits.
This night the band was on fire in more ways than one if you know what i mean, and it was even better than last time i saw them, i think that this night probably will get into my top-10 shows i have ever seen… just amazing! The coolest part of the show, besides all the pyrotechnics was in the middle of the set when the whole band went out to a small stage in the middle of the crowd and performed three songs.
Sonne, Wollt ihr das bett in flammen sehen, Keine lust, Sehnsucht, Asche zu asche, Feuer frei, Mutter, Mein teil, Du riechst so gut, Links 2-3-4, Du hast, Haifisch, Bück dich, Mann gegen mann, Ohne dich, Mein herz brennt, Amerika, Ich will, Engel, Pussy
Here is a clip from the opening at Stockholm and the song “Sonne”
