The Dec. 11 NYC concert marked the band’s first live appearance in the U.S. since its farewell tour after the events of 9/11.
It was promoted by the band at its own risk and sold out within 20 minutes. The documentary, the show in Madison Square Garden, along with the making of Rammstein’s latest studio album, are all part of a DVD titled “In Amerika.”
It was released Sept. 25 and reached No. 1 one in 13 countries, among them four of the most valuable music markets in the world – U.S., UK, Germany and France.
Tom Bohne, President Universal Music Germany, called Rammstein a “musical force of nature. Wherever they show up, success is guaranteed,” referring to the TV broadcast of the Madison Square Garden show Oct. 24 on arte, which had more than 1 million viewers, but also to the band’s much-viewed YouTube channel.
