The band's tour kicks off next week.

Rammstein have announced the act that will support them on their upcoming UK and European tour.

Following the release of their new album, the German metal icons head out on their European tour next week (May 27) and will play their only UK show of 2019 at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes on July 6.

Today (May 24) the band announced that Duo Jatekok will support them on the tour. Taking to Facebook to reveal the news, the band wrote that they were “happy” to confirm the French piano duo as special guests.

“The inventive classical piano duo from France is considered one of the greatest of the moment and include a wide array of music styles in their recordings and projects, such as jazz, hip hop and metal,” Rammstein’s post read.

The duo will perform Rammstein’s 2015 ‘Klavier’ album in full “using 4 hands and 2 pianos.”
