Rammstein coming to Eden Arena

German hard rockers will be back for the first time in over five years

German rock band Rammstein will play Prague's Eden Arena on May 28, 2017. Tickets go on sale Nov. 25 at 9 am. The band was last in Prague in 2011.

The new tour is a short one with only eight dates so far across Europe, starting in Iceland and ending in Denmark. Prague will be the third stop on the tour. The band made a brief statement on its website when the dates were announced: “After a great festival summer 2016 Rammstein will continue their streak of concerts by undertaking the world’s stages again in 2017. The first shows for the summer 2017 were confirmed today!” The band is known for it large pyrotechnic shows onstage, as well as its driving music.

Rammstein has also reportedly been working on new material. Over the summer they introduced a new track titled “Rammstein 4.” In August keyboardist Christian ‘Flake’ Lorenz said it was uncertain when the new album would be finished. “It’s difficult to say how far along we are, because a lot of the time everything seems to be going well – and then there are days and we just want to start the process all over again,” he said, according to music site Teamrock.com. The album is expected in 2017 and so far does not have a title.

The last album from the and was Liebe ist für alle da, meaning Love is for Everyone. It was released in 2009 and received generally favorable reviews. NME gave it 8 out of 10, and Kerrang! gave it four out of five stars.

The band has had trouble in German courts over its album art and songs titles. The inside booklet art for Liebe ist für alle da features a woman being spanked. The song titled “Ich tu dir weh” (I Hurt You) was also deemed harmful for minors. The issue is still before German courts, although some previous rulings have been in the band's favor.

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 door stop called a Rammsteine. Since then they have downplayed the connection to the airbase.

The band has been in Prague six times, starting in 1995 when they played KD Eden. They returned six years later to play Strahov Stadium on the bottom of a bill with AC/DC. They had a second Prague show in 2011 when they headlined. They also had shows in 2004, 2009 and 2011.
