RAMMSTEIN Announces Its Only U.S. Appearance In 2016
After a fairly lengthy hiatus, Rammstein announced in late 2015 that it had been hunkering down to knock out some new material! New material means new tours, or at least an escape from the studio in some capacity.
While we wouldn't even call this one an "escape from the studio" so much as it is a "snack run," Rammstein will be playing its only U.S. show at The Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL, better known as the Chicago Open Air Festival. The festival will take place between July 15 and 17, with a full lineup announcement coming on February 16.
This is incredibly exciting news because Rammstein playing outdoors means that Rammstein can go really crazy with the pyrotechnics. We don't know what Rammstein is playing yet…the full lineup will be revealed Tuesday, February 16 at 5:00 p.m. Central Time. We'd imagine tickets will go quick. Discounted early bird general admission three-day weekend tickets are available for purchase now at www.ChicagoOpenAir.com. As for ticket variations:
A limited quantity of early bird discounted three-day weekend general admission tickets are now available for $199.50 (Field) and $109.50 (Bowl). Once those are sold out, general admission three-day weekend tickets will be $219.50 (Field) and $119.50 (Bowl) while supplies last, with prices increasing as allotments sell out.
