Rammstein will not play on 31 December in Munich in the end (see our original article). The municipality had given its approval, but the organiser and the band decided not to go ahead with the project.

Thanks to articles from SüdDeutsche.de and MediaBiz.de, we learn that the band and organiser Klaus Leutgeb had initially asked to play at the Munich Exhibition Centre. The request was refused, so they approached the Munich city council to play on the Theresienwiese.

It was at this time that the information leaked to the press. This led to a heated political debate and objections from the authorities, the police and the emergency services regarding security. Despite the Munich's agreement a few days later, Rammstein and the organiser decided not to go ahead with the project, deploring the political manipulation they had been subjected to, and pointing out that Rammstein never made a commitment or signed a contract.

It remains to be seen whether there is any hope of Rammstein playing on 31 December. The band and Klaus Leutgeb had indeed made requests in cities other than Munich.
