Russian police arrested Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann on Saturday, August 28, and brought him down to a police station for questioning.
Lindemann was set to perform with his band at the Maklarin For Homeland festival in the Tver region on Sunday, August 29, and the arrest was allegedly related to COVID-19 restrictions relating to mass gatherings in Russia, according to Summa Inferno’s report.
Summa Inferno reported that although there was no official announcement by the singer of his team on the matter, it is known that they were warned by the authority on the health regulations due to the pandemic. Events catering to a large number of people are banned for now.
The report said that Lindemann is set to perform on September 4 and 5 in Moscow for the Spasskaya Baschnja in Red Square, but due to the arrest, the events remain up in the air.
The report added that Lindemann’s manager, Anar Reiband, faces immigration allegations as he entered as a tourist, when in fact he was organizing the event. Reiband could face deportation and being blacklisted from Russia.
