LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- The Berlin band Rammstein has announced plans to kick off a 21-date North American concert tour this spring.
The series of shows is to start April 20 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Tickets for the tour, promoted by Live Nation, are to go on sale beginning Friday, and will be available at Ticketmaster.com, and LiveNation.com.
"Demand for Rammstein's pyrotechnic-laden performances has been so great in Europe, where they regularly play capacity-level soccer stadiums, the band spent nearly a full decade without setting foot on North American shores," a news release from Live Nation said Monday. "In December 2010, the sextet returned to North America for two sold-out shows including a performance at New York's Madison Square Garden. Rammstein followed with a nine-day trek of major North American cities in spring 2011."
The band's first retrospective release, "Made in Germany 1995 -- 2011," will be available in North America through a distribution deal between Universal Germany and Vagrant Records Dec. 13.
