When Rammstein played MSG in 2010, it was the first time I saw the band live. I never thought I’d see the band perform. Their 2010 show was the first time they had been on US soil in 10 years then in 2011 they announced they were doing a few dates stateside. Seeing Rammstein once, unbelievable. Seeing Rammstein twice within 6 months…priceless. I was going to try to see them in Chicago & in Vegas but looking at my bank account, I had to pick one or the other. I chose Vegas of course.
Like the NY show, this was no let down. Some might have been upset that the set list was the same from the MSG show, but I did not care. With a production like theirs you have to be smart in what you’re playing, carrying, and setting up each night!
I cannot speak highly enough of the Rammstein show or the band in general. Even if you are not a fan of Rammstein show, you MUST go see them live just once in your life if you’re a fan of live music. You might not like the music or understand the lyrics, but you will get that a spectacular show it is.
The video below is from Vegas of their song “Engel” from their Sehnsucht album. It is the song they closed the set too as well. Translated lyrics HERE
