German industrial metal band Rammstein will head to Philadelphia for the first time in nearly a decade as part of a stadium tour this summer.
The group, which is known their 1997 hit “Du Hast,” will perform at Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 23. The date is the second of 10 stops on Rammstein’s recently announced tour, as well as their first Philly date since 2012’s “Made in Germany 1995-2011” tour that brought the band to the Wells Fargo Center.
Dubbed in a release as “rock n roll’s most ambitious pyro-theatrical experience,” the tour is the group’s first run of North American stadium dates in its quarter-century history. It is also a rare run of American dates in general for the band, which last played the United States in 2017 as part of a run of festival appearances in cities that included Chicago and Las Vegas.
Most recently, the group released its untitled seventh album in May, with the effort debuting at number nine on the Billboard 200 chart. The album is the Rammstein’s first since 2009, which brought the release of Liebe ist für alle da.
The band is preparing to embark on the second leg of a European stadium tour that begins in May, before heading over to the United States in August. In addition to the stop in Philadelphia, dates on this side of the pond include performances in Washington, D.C., and East Rutherford, N.J., before the band wraps up its tour Sept. 27 in Mexico City, Mexico.
