FIRE IN THE HOLE! THOUGHTS ON RAMMSTEIN’S MAY 5th SHOW IN NEW JERSEY
Axl and I went to Rammstein last Thursday at the Meadowlands Arena (now “Izod Center”) in New Jersey, a surprisingly bearable 45-minute public transit ride from Manhattan. Axl had seen Rammstein when they played Madison Square Garden last fall; me, I was a Rammstein noob. I had an inkling of what was in store, but nothing could possibly have prepared me for the spectacle that is a Rammstein show.
So, I think I can speak for Axl too when I present to you my thoughts on the show:
FIRE! (starts at 1:10… then be patient):
After the jump, guess what? More FIRE!
FIRE! EXPLOSIONS! LIGHTS!
In conclusion, it was pretty much the best thing ever. Bands just don’t do shows like this anymore. If it’s at all within your means to attend any of the tour’s remaining dates, do it… you will NOT be dissapointed.
