Rammstein's Richard Kruspe Has "Mixed Feelings" About Stadium Tour

While Rammstein are preparing to deplete the entire world of pyrotechnics as they ready themselves for their stadium tour next summer, guitarist Richard Kruspe has revealed he has "mixed feelings" about their biggest tour to date.

"Obviously, I’m looking forward to doing something like that, because we haven’t done something like that before – it’s like the next step," Kruspe told Kaaos TV. "On the other hand, it’s also a big responsibility.

"I know we set out to perform on a very high level... and we just realised, in a stadium, it’s different. Everything is different — you have to think different; you have to deal with daylight. Just all those things you have to consider. And it’s not that easy. My brain is running in circles thinking about what you can do and what you can’t do.

"And hopefully we are coming up with something good," he adds. "It’s gonna be interesting. At this point, I’m very, very happy there’s five other guys that have to bear their burden as well. I mean, just to think about you’re gonna be by yourself with that kind of decision, so I really feel comfortable having another five guys to worry about that.”
