Note: The story below regarding Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann made the rounds on Friday 3/27, but the band issued a statement hours later confirming that Lindemann tested negative for coronavirus and was discharged from the ICU:



Till Lindemann, vocalist for the German industrial/metal band Rammstein (in the center of the band photo above), is reportedly in ICU in a hospital in Berlin, listed in critical condition after testing positive for coronavirus.

The diagnosis came after Lindemann, 57, experienced an intense fever after a show with his side project on march 15.

Per BILD news:

On March 15, Lindemann performed a concert in Moscow. On his return to Berlin, he was brought to hospital by emergency medics with an extremely high fever. He tested positive for coronavirus.

Despite the above, the news report cites Lindemann as “feeling better” and that his life is “no longer in danger,” so let’s hope that’s the case.

Before the coronavirus pandemic threw everything into flux, Rammstein had plans to play its very first U.S. stadium tour later this year. Assuming the tour is not postponed and Lindemann returns to full health, the dates are as follows:

Thursday, August 20, 2020 – Montreal, QC – Parc Jean-Drapeau
Sunday, August 23, 2020 – Philadelphia, PA – Lincoln Financial Field
Thursday, August 27, 2020 – Washington, DC – FedExField
Sunday, August 30, 2020 – Minneapolis, MN – U.S. Bank Stadium
Thursday, September 3, 2020 – Chicago, IL – Soldier Field
Sunday, September 6, 2020 – Foxborough, MA – Gillette Stadium
Thursday, September 10, 2020 – East Rutherford, NJ – MetLife Stadium
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 – San Antonio, TX – Alamodome
Saturday, September 19, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Sunday, September 27, 2020 – Mexico City, MX – Foro Sol

Should the tour happen, Rammstein will bring its absolutely ridiculous live stage setup to the U.S. for the first time:
