Rammstein Announces U.S. Show With Korn, Stone Sour

Rammstein returns: the iconic German metallic industrialists, known for pyro-maniacal live performances, will be throwing down with Korn and Stone Sour on July 1st for a very special and exclusive one-night-only event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Tickets for this Independence Day weekend extravaganza, produced by Danny Wimmer Presents and Live Nation Las Vegas, will go on sale beginning Friday, March 31st at 12:00 PM PT. Tickets start at $49.50 and special VIP upgrades will also be available for an additional $99.00. VIP upgrades include a custom event poster, dedicated entrance to the venue, access to a VIP-only lounge at Hyde, a commemorative laminate and a commemorative patch.

“Vegas is known to push the limits, and this will be a night of over-the-top experiences. This show is going to be a wild night and a great way to add some fireworks to your 4th of July weekend,” said Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents.

The triple-threat potency of this bill brings three-and-a-half hours of all the fire-breathing rock ‘n’ roll glory Sin City can handle to T-Mobile Arena. This is the chance to catch Rammstein in top roaring form, playing one of only a few scheduled U.S. shows in 2017 – and their only show with Korn and Stone Sour.

View post on imgur.com

Aborted just announced Danny Tunker’s departure via the following official statement:

“So sometimes there’s good news and sometimes there’s not so good news. Today is one of the not so good news days. After three amazing years guitarist Danny Tunker decided he needed to step back from the band and pursue a different path in life. Combining a normal life and day job became too stressful to combine with our heavy schedule and even if we are sad to see him go, we completely understand his decision and support him in doing what makes him happy in life.

We had 3 great years with Danny and we all felt like a big family so we ask you all to show respect towards both Danny, his decision and the band, there is no bad blood, there is no need for any drama or gossip, Danny had the following to day:

“After a lot of soul searching for the past few months I’ve decided to part ways with Aborted. It’s been a hell of a ride and I want to thank to guys for all the good, bad and in between times. There’s no bad blood and I wish the band all the best, but I needed a change. I will still play the shows in Cairo and Tel Aviv and then on to different ventures (several of which I’m working on right now). And of course continue/expand my involvement with Alkaloid. So, once again, thanks to the band and everyone who made the past 3+ years completely unforgettable.”

Continues Aborted:

“We will be trying out several candidates in the next few weeks and fear not, none of the shows will be cancelled. We are working hard on the next fullength album and we have another surprise to be unleashed before the end of the year. So even if this something we didn’t want to happen, things go on and we intend to keep giving 200% for all you guys out there and wish Danny all the best with his new endeavours.”
