German industrial metallers Rammstein have confirmed they will be coming to the UK for one-night-only in 2020. The newly announced date will see the band headline Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 20 June 2020. This gig follows their 2019 UK appearance as part of their first-ever stadium tour.
First formed in 1994, Rammstein boasts the accolade that their six-man line-up has remained unchanged. No mean feat for a band of their stature and longevity. Comprising of lead vocalist Till Lindemann, lead guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe, bassist Oliver "Ollie" Riedel, rhythm guitarist Paul H. Landers, keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz and drummer Christoph "Doom" Schneider, the band helped found a subgenre within German hard rock and metal that later became known as Neue Deutsche Härte.
While the majority of their songs are in German, they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages including English, Spanish, French, and Russian. Rammstein's award-winning live shows are known for their pyrotechnic elements and both on and off-stage theatrics.
To date, the band have released seven albums, including their debut Herzeleid in 1995, Sehnsucht (1997), Mutter (2001), Reise, Reise (2004), Rosenrot (2005), and Liebe ist für alle da (2009). Their latest, an untitled album, came out in May 2019.
