MAYHEM FEST ORGANIZERS GUNNING FOR RAMMSTEIN TO HEADLINE 2013 TOUR
Mayhem Fest 2012 has only just concluded, so, of course, it’s time to start thinking about next year’s fest. Topping this year’s bill is gonna be tough, what with the line-up featuring the return of Slipknot in addition to two members of the big four (Slayer and Anthrax), the legendary Motörhead, and a host of other noteworthy bands.
But fret not — ’cause the organizers of the annual trek are aiming high! Mayhem producer/co-founder John Reese told Idahotstatesmen.com (Really?) that he tried to get Rammstein this year and failed, but is “gonna try like hell” to book ’em for next year.
It’s hard for me to imagine this actually happening, mainly because the benefit seems greater for Mayhem than it does for Rammstein. Rammstein can sell out arenas in no time flat, even without a dozen other bands playing support. I have no idea what their nightly guarantee is, but I’d wager it would be enough that having any other bands of substantial significance on the card would be infeasible. Who knows, though, I could be wrong.
Start thinking about a world in which Rammstein headlined the fest in our comments section below.
