For the past two weeks now, Rammstein has been touring the 5th continent together with the Australian “Big Day Out” Festival. The illustrious group of musicians on board includes Iggy and the Stooges, Tool, Wolfmother, Nick Cave, Die Andwoord and many more. Despite record temperatures for days on end or, alternatively, a sustained onslaught of rain coming from New Zealand, visitors to “Big Day Out” repeatedly impress with their friendliness and the spring in their step !
During the time outside the shows, besides the occasional trip into the Outback, there have been numerous attempts to conquer the sea and its inhabitants (i.e., shark-riding, pearl diving). On the 7th of February, the band leaves Australia to play – for the first time in their history – 2 concerts in South Africa.
