Fire! Homoeroticism! Crunchy industrial aggro metal! It's all in an night's work for those German controversialists Rammstein, who played their very first show on American soil in nearly a decade with one sold-out show at New York City's Madison Square Garden last December. Well, if you missed that fiery extravaganza, you're in luck, because the band has announced nine additional dates for May.

"We have waited 10 long years for the perfect opportunity to bring our full show to North America. The time is now and we are excited to share this with our fans who have waited for so long," said guitarist Richard Kruspe in a statement.

It's a short run, but clearly, demand for Rammstein blazes at a fevered pitch. Bring your fire retardant suit. Maybe these Rammstein tour dates will see some new props and toys and visual spectacles.
