It had only taken a few minutes, and the concerts of Die Ärzte were sold out. The sales launch for the "In the Ä Tonight" tour began in the afternoon on the band's website. Shortly afterwards it was said: "No more tickets available."
"Did we miss you? Did you miss us? Do you realize now that the world is more beautiful with us ?!" The questions with which Farin Urlaub, Bela B. and Rodrigo González recently announced their first tour after eight years and a new album are well answered. The tickets were sold on the band's own homepage. "Ordered by no means at Ticketrocket, Viagogo and other so-called secondary suppliers, they are all frivolous," it says.
Fifteen concerts were initially planned in German-speaking countries for November and December 2020. The first will take place on November 7th in Hannover. However, just one hour after the start of pre-sale, the band published additional dates - but here, too, the quota has apparently been exhausted.
"In The Ä Tonight" Additional Concerts:
- 08.11.20 Hannover - TUI Arena
- 11.11.20 Leipzig - Arena
- 21.11.20 Stuttgart - Schleyer Hall
- 25.11.20 Hamburg - Barclaycard Arena
- 02.12.20 Dortmund - Westfalenhalle 1
- 09.12.20 Frankfurt - Festhalle
- 16.12.20 Munich - Olympiahalle
- 19.12.20 Berlin - Max-Schmeling-Halle
On Twitter, many fans were disappointed, others took the big crowd on the tour with humor.

The onslaught on the tickets may also be explained by the fact that fans feared for a long time even the separation of the band. In March of this year, the Berlin punkers had caused discussions among their fans. On their website was a song snippet with the text line "Sometimes it's just time to go" had been heard - what many had understood as a farewell message. "Farewell" was then only a newly released song of the band.
This year, the doctors in Germany were only seen live at the festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. Previously, however, they were on stage for some performances in small clubs together in European cities.
