Just before Christmas, the German band Rammstein was spotted in the streets of Warsaw, the singer, Till Lindemann, at the Bristol Hotel, and the rest of the band next to Złote Tarasy. The band was shooting a music video in the abandoned Tworkowski psychiatric hospital in the South-West of Warsaw and Teatr Sabat Małgorzaty Potockiej for the song ‘Zick Zack’.
As usual, this song refers to society and its weaknesses. The new album ‘Zeit’ (Time) will be an allegory of the passing of time, which is referred to in the title ‘Zick Zack’ referring to aging, appearances, and excessive plastic surgery.
Rammstein was scheduled at the PGE Stadion Narodowy on July 17th, 2020 but due to the pandemic situation, the concert was postponed once on July 17th, 2021, but due to the persistence of the pandemic the show has been postponed today for the second time, the show should be held on July 16th, 2022.
Due to the expected ongoing event-bans and restrictions related to COVID-19, Rammstein was unfortunately forced to postpone the planned European Stadium Tour again. Find more information on http://ramm.st/europetour2022!
