Information

The Pledge of Allegiance Tour was a row of concerts in 2001. It was headlined by Slipknot and System Of A Down.

The tour was supposed to start on September 14th, but the beginning of the tour was rescheduled because of the terrorist attacks on September 11th. Towards the end of the tour, Paul had to leave due to an emergency in his family. As a result, Rammstein played with only 5 members on October 23rd and Daron Malakian of System Of A Down replaced him on the 24th. Afterwards, Rammstein dropped out of the tour, officially because of Paul's departure, but in reality the reason was much more complicated. The band later said that their departure from the tour was caused by exhaustion from non-stop touring, which lead to disagreements between Paul and Richard. This all, combined with the bad atmosphere in the United States due to the terrorist attacks, lead to Flake leaving the country without alerting tour operators.[1]

Later, a CD of the tour was also released, which completely lacks any recording of Rammstein due to reasons unknown.

Other Bands

Other bands that participated in this tour were Slipknot, System Of A Down, American Head Charge, Mudvayne and No One.

Mudvayne

The band Mudvayne was originally supposed to tour for the entire duration of the tour, but left after the performance of September 30 due to undisclosed "personal reasons". No One was scheduled to leave the tour and be replaced by American Head Charge, but decided to stay for the duration while American Head Charge took Mudvayne's spot.[2]
