Gewinnen Sie Tickets für Einstürzende Neubauten!

UPDATE: Einstürzende Neubauten’s 30th Anniversary U.S. tour has been canceled. From our friends at Goldenvoice:

It is with great regret that Einstürzende Neubauten announce the cancellation of their planned thirtieth anniversary appearances in Los Angeles , San Francisco , Chicago , Toronto and New York .  While the US Department of Homeland Security did issue approvals for the band’s visas, it was not done in time to secure the appointments at the overseas embassies and consulates that represent the necessary final step in the process.

The band members are tremendously disappointed by this turn of events and wish to thank all those fans who purchased tickets for these performances for their support.  The band would have loved to do the tour and meet their overseas fans. Because this tour was a time-sensitive production, it will not be rescheduled.  Ticketholders can obtain refunds from their point of purchase.

I expect you’re probably as disappointed as I am. Please direct your notes of appreciation for the Department of Homeland Security Theater keeping us safe from terrorists and German musicians to:

Secretary Janet Napolitano
Department Of Homeland Security
U.S. Department Of Homeland Security
Washington, D.C. 20528

Someone with better Google-fu than mine can find Sec. Napolitano’s email address, but you can call her at: (202) 282-8000.

German experimental band Einstürzende Neubauten are celebrating their 30th anniversary. They’ll be bringing their show to Los Angeles next week, and Blogging.LA has your tickets.

In addition to regular concert performances, the band is playing a second date in each city along the tour. The first date will be a standard concert performance, while the second date will open with films and art installations, followed by a short concert presentation featuring material that has never been performed live before. Those second shows will finish with performances by the individual Einstürzende Neubauten members.

  1. OMG. I totally love this band more than things I love less than this band. And I speak German. A little. And poorly. And Germans hate me when I do it. But I will go to the concert. And stop writing reasons. But only if I win tickets. To the concert. P.S. I’m not really writing this. Your Mind = Blown.

  2. Ich moechte sehr gerne an der Show mitmachen, hoffe aber dass nichts einstuerzt! Besonders keine Neubauten. Seriously, would love to see them, as long as no new buildings are gonna collapse around us.

  3. I remember seeing Einstürzende Neubauten for the first time about 10 years ago in Berlin. It was one of those shows I’ll remember forever. It was a sound I had never heard before. I can’t wait to hear/see what they’re up to now. I’d love to win tix for the show.

  4. Tossing my hat in the ring for that bit of lunacy!
    Neubauten in L.A. ?!! Bhoa ey! Nuff said…
    Die Neubauten aren’t just a band, they’re a fact of life. Full frontal bludgeoning and head-shrinking guaranteed.
    This is nothing for the meek and everything for the souls lost at sea. Pick me!

  5. Many years ago I saw Neubauten perform at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia. It was a life altering, mind blowing experience, and quite possibly the best show that I’ve ever seen. My beloved has never seen them live, and I would love to be able to share that with him, as an early birthday gift (it’s 12/6).

    There are too few things of this power and caliber in the world today, and to be able to experience that again would be incredible

  6. A good sir loaned me some amazing CDs of theirs a few years ago. and while moving apartments…i don’t know…they’re just gone. GONE! I lost them somehow. And I’m not the losing type.

    I think he’s forgiven me but that’s not enough! NO! I know for a fact that he will be at the Music Box show. And if i win tickets, I will spend all the saved money on drinks and merch for him. Think of it. I will see the band and he will have his stuff back plus interest. Hakuna matata.
