Last Monday (May 22), RAMMSTEIN kicked off the ‘Europa Stadion’ tour in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, and shortly thereafter, a visitor to the gig accused frontman Till Lindemann and the band of administering drugs to attendees at a private party.
Throughout the week, numerous women came forward to share their experiences with Lindemann at multiple concerts. One of these women, Shelby Lynn from Ireland, took to Twitter and Instagram to report what she had gone through. She was on the guest list for the pre- and after-party, where only young women were invited and their phones taken away. Shelby claimed that drinks were distributed and Till mixed with the women and served them alcohol.
She was then asked to meet with Till privately during a break in the concert, where she thought there was an expectation of sex, but she refused. After the show, Shelby experienced extreme symptoms such as insomnia, tachycardia, diarrhea, nausea, and chills, and upon waking the next morning, she found bruises all over her body.

It is possible that she was given drugs from the RAMMSTEIN crew, and this seems to be a recurring issue, as evidenced by other reports from RAMMSTEIN concerts and Till Lindemann‘s solo project LINDEMANN. The band has yet to comment on the allegations, and Numerous testimonials from other fans are being collected on Reddit and Tumblr.
RAMMSTEIN has since responded to the allegations in a following statement: “With regard to the allegations circulating on the internet about Vilnius, we can rule out the possibility that what is being claimed took place in our environment. We are not aware of any official investigations into this matter.”
