Rammstein attempt to block Viagogo from reselling European tour tickets

Rammstein has taken legal action to prevent Viagogo from reselling tickets to their upcoming European tour.

The German metal band announced their European stadium tour earlier this month and will kick off in Lithuania before a string of dates in Germany, Spain, France, and the Netherlands.

They will end their string of performances in Belgium, at the King Baudouin Stadium on August 4.

Before going on the road, Rammstein safeguarded their tickets from being resold at inflated prices, with Hamburg, Germany, taking a restraining order against any being sold on Viagogo.

‘Buyers often do not realise that they are not buying their tickets from the organiser but on the secondary ticket market,’ lawyer Sebastian Ott said in a statement, as per

‘The legislature has recognised this deficiency and acted. We are pleased that the district court of Hamburg shares our opinion and consistently prohibits violations of the new law.’

As a result, Eventim is the only platform permitted to sell tickets for the shows.

Rammstein has a history of going up against Viagogo, having previously clashed in 2018 when the website attempted to distribute tickets to the band’s gigs in Germany.

At the time, Ott said: ‘The court’s decision is a warning sign to anyone who thinks they can sell hugely overpriced and invalid Rammstein tickets and advertise these on popular search engines.’

iagogo is a ticket exchange and ticket resale brand which was founded in 2006 in London.

Although the website offers some tickets at face value it is well known for vastly inflating prices for events.
