The most metal concert reviews in LA


Rammstein @ Jimmy Kimmel 5/19/11

I hadn’t seen Rammstein since 2001 at the Pledge of Allegiance Tour so I was really excited to see them. They had been banned from the United States for nearly a decade and you could feel the excitement as we waited in line to be let in to the venue. I don’t think I have ever waited so long to see a band at the Jimmy Kimmel show as I did that day. We even got to hear the sound check.

The band was introduced by Jimmy Kimmel and they opened with their classic “Du Hast” complete with massive displays of open flames and fireworks. You could feel the heat from the flames even though I wasn’t that close to the stage! Till Lindemann had some crazy flamethrower gun that he used to set a roadie on fire during their performance of “Du Hast”.

I think it was the first time ever that a band has had pyrotechnics on the Jimmy Kimmel show and it was awesome. The band was GREAT!

Set List
1. Du Hast
2. Feuer Frei
3. Sonne
4. Keine Lust
5. Ich Will

Oh, and in case you are wondering the roadie is okay.
