Rammstein will be touring Europe and North America until the beginning of October 2022. The opening act will be Duo Jatekok and Duo Abélard – two French piano bands.
Hamburg – If you go to a Rammstein concert, you can be sure of one thing: it will be loud! But while Till Lindemann and his band mates are literally setting off fireworks, the support acts are playing calmer tones. In 2022, Rammstein will be accompanied on their big stadium tour through Europe and North America by two piano duos, who will be supporting the cult band: Duo Jatekok and Duo Abélard.

Rammstein live 2022: The supporting bands Duo Jatekok and Duo Abélard will perform in these cities
The two French pianists Adélaïde Panaget and Naïri Badal formed the duo Jatekok (Hungarian for “games”) in 2007 together. In 2019, the Jatekok duo appeared as the opening act for Rammstein, and now the piano artists are also part of the successful band’s big Europe Stadium Tour 2022. The duo Jatekok was the support act for Rammstein in Prague, Leipzig, Klagenfurt, Zurich, Berlin and Stuttgart. And also at the two Rammstein shows in Hamburg on June 14 and 15, 2022 the French women sit on the stage at the piano.
Gentle piano tones instead of brute Rammstein sound? The trick is in the detail. Because the duo Jatekok doesn’t fall back on Brahms or Chopin, but reinterprets Rammstein classics like “Engel” or “Sonne”. The same applies to the duo Abélard – consisting of the French pianists Katherine Nikitine and Héloïse Hervouët. They take over the opening act after the remaining Rammstein appearances in Germany Hamburg and Düsseldorf and can be seen in Aarhus, Coventry, Cardiff, Nijmegen, Lyon, Turin, Warsaw, Tallinn, Oslo, Gothenburg and Ostend as the opening act for Rammstein.
On Rammstein’s subsequent North American stadium tour 2022, concertgoers in Montreal, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Chicago, East Rutherford and Foxborough will be able to enjoy the piano skills of Duo Abélard. The Jatekok duo will then conclude the North American tour in San Antonio, Los with Rammstein as the opening act Angeles and Mexico City.
Rammstein live 2022: This is how the fans react to the support act for Duo Jatekok and Duo Abélard
Music is a matter of taste. And if at Rammstein as at the performance in Hamburger People’s Park Stadium more than 50,000 fans come together, then the opening act will not meet everyone’s taste. Especially when the musical direction is very different from that of the main act, as is the case with Rammstein, Duo Jatekok and Duo Abélard. The commitment of the French pianists as the opening act already caused criticism in the run-up to Rammstein’s Europe Stadium Tour 2022.
“Not the 2 on the piano again. The mood is definitely not heated up,” complained a user after the announcement on Rammstein’s official Instagram account. “Oof… again? There was so much feedback.. no one wants that ‘opening act’. Really sad that they don’t react to the fans at all”, “Oh no, please not again… not a good opening act for the genre”, “Oh no. Not again the caustic jingling”, “I’m really sorry, but in 2019 it was very boring (to fall asleep) with piano music as an opener and the nice ladies were unfortunately booed,” said the tenor in the Instagram comments. However, one user has at least one practical tip for all those who hate food: “At least still have time to get drinks!”
