Rammstein approve of this campaign for a LEGO set of their stage show
Having spoken to the team who put together the incredible production for each Rammstein gig, we can confirm that it takes a lot of hours, and even more hard work to bring their shows to life. One creative fan has simplified all this, though, and turned the band’s stadium tour set design into a potential new LEGO line.
As part of the LEGO IDEAS initiative, Airbricks has managed to secure over 10,000 votes for their Rammstein project, with the band even sharing photos of the set and giving their seal of approval. And, because it’s already hit over 10k backers, it means that the company will give it an official expert review – so it could quite possibly become a reality.
A description of the design reads: “Rock concert scene consisting of 6 members 2 guitarists 1 bassist 1 keyboardist 1 drummer and 1 singer the es made up of 1493 coins. The scenes can be modulated according to your taste and there is a functional elevator to say goodbye to the public at the end of the concert.
“I create them to remind me of the good times spent at the concert when we didn’t have this disease hanging around hoping that soon all this will be behind us. I hope many of you will like it and that you will vote for my project to title Stadium Tour thank you in advance.”
Rammstein lighting designer Roland Griel – as part of production company Woodroffe Bassett – told Kerrang! about putting together the production for the most recent tour: “The band are very involved and close to the process, but in a very positive way. You always end up with different involvement from an artist. One artist might not be involved at all and trusts you to do whatever you want, but then you can have the other extreme who dictate everything. Rammstein are in between. They come up with great ideas by themselves as well, and they get quite a clear picture of what they want, and that’s the perfect case, because you’re doing it in collaboration.
“Going into stadiums, you can only bring in about 10 trucks at a time, so you have to make sure you bring in the right one at the right time for what it’s got in it, that there are enough people around. I think they’ve got the load out down to four and a half hours now. Then they get in the trucks and drive 500km to the next show. Then they load all the pyro and lights, which takes about eight hours. Repeat that until the tour is over!”
In 2020 the band shared a mind-blowing time-lapse video of how their shows come together – watch that below:
