Fans of the live music scene are chomping at the bit about news about shows that they have tickets for in the hopes that they will somehow take place if the dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic has moved along. Sadly, it hasn’t yet and this finds more and more touring cycles being cancelled many months in advance. Here now the latest update from Rammstein regarding their North American Tour that was secured from the bands Official Facebook Page.
Sadly, but in the best interests of everyone’s health and safety, we have to postpone our North America Tour. We are now working on rescheduling the tour in 2021, so please hold on to your tickets as they will be honored at the rescheduled show dates. We hope to have an update on that shortly and will communicate it once we do. Continue reading Rammstein Postpones North American Tour 2020→
Last month, the guys in Rammstein announced a full North American stadium tour and if you missed all the finer details about that just click HERE to be up to date. Yesterday, the world at large got a glimpse into just what a build of their touring stage looks like and to say that it is impressive would be an understatement. Watch the amazing time lapse video below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Whew. Here I thought that a KISS or a Trans-Siberian Orchestra tour had a stage build to contend with. Alright, they do of course but despite their mutual awesome they are nothing like this creation. Having looked at this clip a few times, it made me wonder what kind of LEGO building set it might be if the proper expert creator of that stuff took a go at it. I realize that’s a strange revelation but I did just attend the annual Toy Fair so a lot of things like that are on my mind. It’s entirely possible because someone made a Tool diorama not too long ago so why not. It’s too early to know if I will be in attendance at the September show when the group is in my area but I sure hope to be there. If I am you will aware of it for sure with clips, and Instagram pics from the experience along with the eventual show review. See you next time.
The Finnish Symphonic Metal sensation known as Nightwish has been in the news recently with their recently released single and video for the song “Noise” which is the first new music that we have gotten from the band in a few years.

Check it out down below the amazing new band photograph that was taken by Ville Akseli Juurikkala.
