Rammstein returning to Prague’s Eden Arena

The German band is ready to release their first new album in a decade

German hard rock band Rammstein will play Prague’s Eden Arena for two shows on July 16 and 17 as part of their 2019 European Summer Stadium Tour.

Tickets go on sale to LIFAD fan club members Nov. 5 at 10 am to Nov. 7 at 10 am, though numbers are limited. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Eventim, Ticketportal and Ticketmaster on Nov. 8 at 10 am.

The tour starts in May in Gelsenkirchen, Germany and ends in Vienna in August. Rammstein was last in Prague in May 2017, also for two days at Eden Arena, and has been in Prague six other times since 1995, including as the opening act for AC/DC at Strahov in 2001.

The band will have new material. “Almost done! Orchestra and choir recordings in Minsk for album No. 7!” the band announced on Facebook on Sept. 17. The still-untitled album would be the first new studio album since Liebe ist für alle da, which came out in 2009.

They also announced previously that they would introduce some unreleased material in their show in Puerto Vallarta. Mexico, on New Year’s Eve.

In 2017, lead guitarist Richard Kruspe said the band had some 35 songs ready to record, but how many will be on the new album has not been disclosed.

The band is known for it large pyrotechnic shows, as well as its driving music. The most recent shows in Prague had fireworks shot right over the heads of the audience as well as from a stand in the middle of the crowd. There were several complicated theatrical effects on stage and costume changes.

Liebe ist für alle da, meaning Love is for Everyone, received generally favorable reviews. All of their albums save for their debut, Herzeleid, reached number one the charts in the German market. The debut peaked at number six.

Rammstein is a Neue Deutsche Härte (new German hardness) band that formed in Berlin in 1994. Its six-member lineup has been steady since the beginning, with singer Till Lindemann, guitarists Richard Z. Kruspe and Paul H. Landers, bassist Oliver "Ollie" Riedel, drummer Christoph "Doom" Schneider, and keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz.

They mainly sing in German, but also have songs in other languages including English. The band's name originally was Rammstein-Flugschau, meaning Rammstein Airshow. There was an aviation disaster at Ramstein Air Base in 1988. The American airbase has only one “m” in its name. Later, the band offered another origin of the name, claiming it refers to a type of old doorstop called a Rammstein. Since then they have downplayed the connection to the airbase.
