Rammstein Denies Till Lindemann Has COVID-19


Rammstein has denied a report by German tabloid Bild that frontman Till Lindemann tested positive for COVID-19.

"Yesterday evening Till Lindemann was admitted to a hospital on the band’s doctor’s advice," read a statement late Friday. "He spent the night in intensive care but has been moved as he is feeling better. Till has tested negative for the coronavirus."

The 57-year-old was taken to hospital suffering from “an extremely high fever," Bild reported.

Lindemann had returned to Berlin earlier this month from Russia, where he and Peter Tägtgren were on tour with their project LINDEMANN. The duo had concerts in Moscow on March 15 and Novosibirsk on March 17 but cancelled shows in three more Russians cities scheduled for between March 19 and 23. "Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and prohibitions by the Russian and Tatar authorities, organisers have to cancel the last three shows of Lindemann's tour," read a statement from the band at the time.

As of March 27, there have been nearly 44,000 cases of COVID-19 in Germany, including 267 deaths. The country has one of the lowest mortality rates due to the virus.

Rammstein is scheduled to perform Aug. 20 in Montreal’s Jean Drapeau Park.
