  • This was the legendary "knickers gig".[1]
  • The band played the show without any pyro effects. Instead they started playing with water.[2]
  • For Seemann the band sat in front of the drums and the audience was singing the song.[3]
  • After Engel Martina Kubos, who was leading the fanclub back then, came on stage and took Till's mic. When he took if back of her, she took it again from him, after which he left the stage annoyed. Martina called him back and announced that the Rammstein-Ruhrpott fanclub created a "black gold" award of the band: a piece of coal with the Engel-CD put into. After that the show went on.[4]
