For those that still think there is a chance of Rammstein playing Mayhem Festival, in 2010 Rammstein agreed to play a Summer festival in the Netherlands called Pinkpop. The cost for Rammstein to play that festival was 1.5 million Euros, equaling 1.85 million dollars. That is around how much it would cost per date for Rammstein to play Mayhem Festival. 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.

Only likely possible headliners I can think of for next year are Avenged Sevenfold, Tool, and only possible coheadliners I can think of are Rob Zombie or Korn.

Unless they go more of a hard rock route like in 2008 or 2011 and throw on Staind as a coheadliner.

I think Alice in Chains is fair game. They're on the same level of metal as Godsmack or Rob Zombie. I think their last album was heavier than anything Godsmack or Rob Zombie has done.

I think A7X/5FDP are likely for Uproar next year. I may be wrong but I don't believe A7X is heavy enough for Mayhem Fest. I know Godsmack/Disturbed aren't much heavier but if they drift towards more hard rock not only does it stray from their fanbase even more (nu, death, core) but for those who can only afford one concert to go to (damn you poor economy) this could make them choose between Mayhem & Uproar which they probably don't want to happen.

I agree completely, all six members have said in separate interviews that they refuse to play anywhere unless they can bring the full stage show (including the US). Not to mention how much the whole show would cost should John Reese magically figure out a way to put on the whole stage show. A German magazine interviewed one of Rammstein's roadies and he said for each US tour date they have to bring their own generators because with as much power as they use it would shut down half of an entire city just for Rammstein to play a concert. Of course this would cost an insane amount of money that John Reese just can't afford.

One thing we do have to acknowledge is that if Reese is persuasive he could possibly talk Live Nation into giving him more $. Afterall this was their biggest year yet.

I mean, for fuck's sake; Mayhem Festival has been at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View here every time, and Maiden couldn't fit their entire stage show on it. If Maiden can't, do you really expect Rammstein to be able to?
