Rammstein bans secondary ticket site Viagogo from selling tickets for their tour | Music
Rammstein have legally banned secondary ticketing site Viagogo from reselling tickets for their European stadium tour.
German industrial metallers, including Thiel Lindemann, Richard Kruspe, Paul Landers, Oliver Riedel, Christoph “Doom” Schneider and Christoph “Doom” Schneider, have filed a petition preventing the retailer from selling tickets for their upcoming concerts.
The ban is due to a new law passed by a district court in Hamburg, Germany.
According to Louder, lawyer Sebastian Ott said: “Buyers often do not understand that they are not buying tickets from the organizers, but on the secondary ticket market.
“The Legislature recognized this shortcoming and took action. We are pleased that the district court of Hamburg shares our opinion and consistently prohibits violations of the new law.”
Only tickets purchased through Eventim will be accepted, visitors must verify their identity upon entering the concert.
The extensive run starts on May 22, 2023 at Vingio Parkas in Lithuania.
In 2020, rockers Du hast won Best Live Band at the Heavy Music Awards for their 2019 stadium gigs.
In a video message, they shared, “It’s always special to be recognized for what you believe in, and when that recognition comes directly from the fans, it means a lot.”
In April, the band released their eighth studio album, Zeit.
However, had it not been for the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of the touring industry, it may never have been made.
Drummer Doom previously said: “Not being able to perform live has increased our creative potential.
“We had more time to think about new things and less distractions. As a result, we recorded a record that we did not plan.”
