  • This was the legendary "knickers gig". This is because the band performed wearing only knickers[1]
  • The band played the show without any pyro effects. Instead they started playing with water.[2]
  • During Seemann, the band sat in front of the drums and the audience was singing the song.[2]
  • After Engel, Martina Kubos, who was leading the fanclub back then, came on stage and took Till's mic. When he took it back off of her, she took it from him again, 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 it. After that, the show went on.[2]
