J-Rock band L’Arc-En-Ciel has announced that they will be embarking on a world tour this March, with stops in Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, London, Paris, and New York’s Madison Square Garden. The band will finish the tour in Japan. This will be the first time that a Japanese band will headline Madison Square Garden. Tour dates are below.
The band has a new album, Butterfly, coming out via iTunes on Feb. 8th.
Metropolis recording artists COMBICHRIST have been tapped as main support for RAMMSTEIN’s first and only show on U.S. soil in ten years at NYC’s legendary Madison Square Garden. The show will take place on Saturday, December 11, 2010.
Rammstein and Combichrist are no strangers to each other. Both bands toured Europe together for four months in 2010, strengthening a tie that ultimately brought them together for what will undoubtedly be an amazing evening of beat-driven metal and industrialized mayhem.
While Rammstein will be returning from a tour of Latin America before this show, Combichrist will have wrapped up their previously announced U.S. Monsters On Tour with Aesthetic Perfection and iVardensphere as support as well as a handful of dates in Australia. Due to the announced Madison Square Garden date, the previously announced New York City date on November 20th has been canceled (refunds available at point of purchase). In addition, the Montreal, QC on November 18th has been canceled as well. Replacement shows on those dates have been announced in Ithaca, NY and Pittsburgh, PA.
Following their tour of Latin America, Rammstein will play the band’s only show on U.S. soil in Manhattan’s legendary MSG Arena on December 11th, 2010. The band hopes in the process to fulfill the wishes of the many thousands of U.S. fans who have longed to see Rammstein live once more after 10 years away from the land of amber waves of grain.
Rammstein’s performance at Quebec’s Summer Festival already spurred a huge wave of U.S. travelers to Canada this summer, where the band’s show was seen by 130,000 people.
Now, with this exclusive one-time event, fans from the U.S. and all over the world are given the unique opportunity to see Rammstein in this history-charged venue in the heart of New York’s midtown.
