The band has also gone on record saying they refuse to play various South Eastern states (some of which Mayhem Festival goes to) because of how much protest they get and when they played said states in 2001 they even received death threats.
Regardless of the death threats I don't see Rammstein willing to play a stripped down show just for Mayhem Fest. I have yet to see them live but their stage production interests me as much as, if not more than their music. A stripped down Rammstein set (all Mayhem could afford) would likely make the tour lose walk in/last minute ticket sales once word got out after the first few shows.
