Rammstein are known for their explosive and creative live performances with spectacular lighting. In the course of two decades, the German rock band have risen to the apex of the great rock pyramid, achieving album and DVD sales in the millions, headlining major festivals and bigger venues around the world (including New York’s Madison Square Garden, a show that sold out its 18,200 tickets in under 30 minutes!), and establishing themselves as peerless master showmen with an approach to their art – and ‘art’ is the word – that is dramatic, epic in scale and capable of touching all of the senses; a dark and spectacular fairy-tale laced with controversy and don’t-try-this-at-home theatrics.
“Rammstein is an act that is headlining major festivals all over the world,” says Chicago Open Air producer Danny Wimmer. “I’ve been trying to get Rammstein here for years and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to launch Chicago Open Air with them. If you’ve never seen Rammstein LIVE before, you are in for a real treat.”
Look for the full list of Chicago Open Air music, craft beer and artist-inspired beverages, as well as the Gourmet Man Food lineup to be announced Tuesday, February 16 at 5:00 PM Central Time.
