Rammstein Obtains Court Injunction Against Viagogo To Take Control Of Their Ticket Sales


In an ongoing dispute over the sales of their tickets for next summers’ highly anticipated and likely sell out headline tour of Europe, Rammstein have obtained a preliminary injunction against concert ticket resellers Viagogo in their native Germany. The Hamburg District Court injunction prohibits Viagogo from selling tickets on www.viagogo.de for Rammstein’s 2019 stadium concerts in Germany. Tickets for the German dates are personalised, with promoter MCT Agentur only allowing resale through Eventim’s own fanSALE platform and München Ticket. All German tickets previously sold on Viagogo and other secondary tickets sites are invalid. Still, Viagogo is still listing tickets for sale that are now not good for entry into any show. Rammstein are embarking on a multi-year world tour for their expected new and likely final album, due in 2019.

Rammstein commented:

For years, Rammstein has consistently taken action against ticket resellers that sell overpriced and invalid tickets.

The Hamburg District Court has now issued a preliminary injunction against Viagogo AG. The injunction bans Viagogo from selling tickets on www.viagogo.de for Rammstein’s 2019 stadium concerts in Germany, from claiming that the tickets are valid and that they can be used to enter the concerts, and from using Google AdWords to advertise the tickets.

The preliminary injunction was obtained by the following law firm in Hamburg: LICHTE Rechtsanwälte. Sebastian Ott, lawyer, states: “The court’s decision is a warning sign to anyone who thinks they can sell hugely overpriced and invalid Rammstein tickets and advertise these on popular search engines.”

The band is pleased with the district court’s decision and with the ban issued by the court.”
