Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann is reportedly in intensive care in Berlin with coronavirus (COVID-19).
According to German newspaper Bild, the 57-year-old singer fell ill after performing in Moscow, Russia on Sunday 15th March with Lindemann – his eponymous duo alongside Peter Tägtgren of Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy.
Bild claims Lindemann began feeling unwell upon his return to his native Berlin and was rushed to hospital by emergency medics as he was suffering from an extremely high fever.
Lindemann tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and also developed pneumonia in hospital where he was in a critical condition.
Fortunately, Bild reports that Lindemann is ‘feeling better and his life is no longer in danger’, however he remains in intensive care under quarantine.
Everyone at Planet Rock wishes Till Lindemann a speedy recovery.
Rammstein are scheduled to perform at Cardiff Principality Stadium on Sunday 14th June and Coventry Ricoh Arena on Saturday 20th June as part of their European stadium tour.

A Ritual Spirit are donating 30% of their merch sales this weekend to the NHS.
"Let’s be honest, it’s pretty shit right now eh. This virus has all of a sudden become the new C word. There’s lots of folk doing their bit, be it by staying in isolation, volunteering in the care sector, donating to food banks or countless other acts of good will but there's one set of people who not only during times of crisis but day in day out look after us when we need it most... the staff of the NHS, especially the doctors, nurses and carers on the front lines fighting tirelessly to save lives.
Today as BandCamp waives its fee, giving artists 100% of the sale price for their merch, we’d like to do our bit too and pass on 30% of all merch sales to the NHS via NHS Charities Together in recognition of the amazing work they do.
We understand that not everybody can afford band merch right now, with everything that's going on in the world there’s more urgent matters to attend to, so if you’d like to us support us but don’t feel like you can at the moment drop us a message and we’ll figure something out, similarly if you'd just like to make a small charity donation to the NHS we can facilitate that too.
Initially we're planning to run this until midnight on Sunday 29th March but may extend it further.
