The band posted a map of North America on its social pages, highlighting certain states and one Canadian province.

Additionally, Quebec is highlighted in Canada.

The tour will stop at Philadelphia, PA; East Rutherford, NJ; Washington D.C.; Foxborough, MA; Montreal, QC; Chicago, IL; Minneapolis, MN; Los Angeles, CA; San Antonio, TX; and Mexico City, MX.
Rammstein released their first album in nearly 10 years last year. The untitled effort was met with critical praise, yielding such songs as the explosive lead single “Deutschland” along with standouts like “Ausländer” and “Puppe”.
So far, the band has only toured Europe in support of the album, embarking on a stadium tour last year, with another European run set for this summer, as well. The last time Rammstein played North America was a July 1st, 2017, show in Las Vegas.
For more than a quarter century, Rammstein have established themselves as one of rock’s most dynamic live acts, thanks to onstage acrobatics, imaginative props, and tons and tons of pyro. Stay tuned as exact dates and cities are revealed.
