Less Genitals and More Bling

Mitsubishi Electric Halle, Düsseldorf – 10 November, 2023

Till Lindemann’s band did not change up a lot of things for Düsseldorf. Though compared to Leipzig, there were less genitals on the big screen, instead the audience got to enjoy some more (questionable) style choices from the band.

Compared to the arena in Leipzig, which has a capacity of around 12,000 people, Mitsubishi Electric Halle in Düsseldorf only takes around 5,500 people for concerts where seats are used. Perhaps because of this, Düsseldorf was one of the first locations to sell out when tickets went on sale for the Till Lindemann tour.

Conquering the rain and low temperatures, the first fans showed up early in the morning to line up for a good spot. While this can not be compared to Rammstein concerts, it’s still pretty impressive what lengths some fans go to see their favourite artists up close. It took a while before more people arrived, which was possibly caused by the bad weather conditions. It was raining most of the day and it was pretty cold, too.

Some time around 4 pm a small merch truck outside the arena opened, which was nice, as people could get their shopping done before doors. The merch truck had largely the same items as in Leipzig, though with two new additions: The CD album Zunge was sold for the first time ever since the release got postponed from early November. The price was set to 20 €. Additionally, there was an album bundle for sale, consisting of a t-shirt, a tote bag, and the CD album, and it only cost 5 € more than the stand alone album. The CD album is the standard jewelcase version and not the pillow fan box.

Only around 5 pm the lines became so long that security started to actively manage them. People were told to leave umbrellas or bigger bags in their cars. With the rain getting more intense and people getting soaked, they couldn’t wait to be let in, which finally happened around 6:30 pm.

At 8 pm Phantom Vision entered the stage and played the same set as they did in Leipzig. The audience response was about the same as well. Once Aesthetic Perfection started their show, people were more enthusiastic. They played the same set, but with two small mishaps. Before the band got on stage, a piano version of All Beauty Destroyed started playing, which was not planned. After Daniel Graves quickly resolved the situation, the intro correctly started playing, followed by Gods & Gold. Unfortunately, during the beginning of the song, the drummer had problems playing in sync with the rest of the band. That led to a visibly confused Daniel omitting almost the entire first verse of the song. But after also this problem was solved, the show went on as planned without any further issues, much to the delight of the fans in the crowd. Both the band and the audience seemed happy about the performance.

Going on stage at around 9:15 pm, Till Lindemann and his band didn’t surprise us with any big changes. The set list, effects, lights, and song structures were all the same as in Leipzig. Yet there were a few small changes that we noticed.

The first and most visible change was that some of the costumes of the musicians were changed. Jes Paige had exchanged the halterneck sleeveless top and pants with a high-neck top with lace-up details and leather hotpants with leather straps with fringes. She wore fishnets under the hotpants. Emily Ruvidich wore the same laquered top, thigh cuffs, and fishnets, but had exchanged the thong shorts from Leipzig with hipster style hotpants. Constance Day used the same laquered pleated miniskirt as in Leipzig, but exchanged her crop top singlet for a laquered halterneck top. Danny Lohner seemed to wear the same jacket, top, and pants, though he didn’t wear red wristbands like in Leipzig, instead he had put on black suspenders.

Unfortunately we weren’t able to compare Joe Letz‘s outfits – they are not that easy to see as he sits behind the drum set most of the time. Till Lindemann seemed to be wearing the same outfit as before.

For Platz Eins, Emily and Danny brought out the bling. While Jes kept her shutter style party glasses from Leipzig, Emily switched out the more nerdy, red glasses frame with a collar, whereas Danny had a cap, both of the new items blinking in different colours. This added to the party atmosphere on stage while Till and Constance made their way through the crowd.

Another small change was the back projections. Apparently, some of them had been altered. Fat had a short video of three women riding a mechanical bull. That video was entirely scrapped in Düsseldorf. For Knebel, the video was surprisingly uncensored, whereas it had been censored in Leipzig. Skills in Pills had less genital shots than in Leipzig. It was missing the entire scene of a big pill being pushed out of a vagina.

It is not always easy to follow the back projections, though. The band was energetic and drew attention away from what was happening in the background. This was blog crew member KidArctica’s first concert this tour, and seeing Till Lindemann’s new band live was great.

For Düsseldorf, Till Lindemann chose to have an official afterparty at Tor 3, a club in Düsseldorf. Anyone could buy tickets for this event, though the price was not the cheapest: 35 Euro for early birds, and 45 Euros regular price. After the concert, all the band members headed to the club. Till had a corner of the VIP section to himself and his guests, whereas Joe played a DJ set. He was accompanied on stage by his fellow band members Constance, Danny, and Jes, who seemed to have a blast dancing and singing. It was an entertaining end to a nice evening with Till Lindemann band. Whether it was worth the money or not, must be up to everyone to decide for themselves.
