German punk band Die Toten Hosen to re-release limited edition ‘unplugged’ LP

die toten hosen

On this day 15 years ago Die Toten Hosen, turned off their amps and picked up their acoustic guitars for two nights only!

On a hot late-summer weekend, 15 years ago today, the recording for the album Only or a visit: Die Toten Hosen Unplugged in the Vienna Burgtheater took place in the beautiful Vienna Burgtheater – a project that broke new ground for the iconic German punk band Die Toten Hosen.

“After we had been on the road with electric amplification almost exclusively – with the accelerator fully depressed – we decided to face this special adventure: a whole ‘trousers’ concert unplugged,” the band said in a statement. “We didn’t know what to expect, the audience even less, but the joy that both evenings turned out to be a great experience for everyone.”

At these concerts, Die Toten Hosen played four brand new cover versions that included: Hand In Hand by the Beatsteaks, Blitzkrieg Bop by the Ramones and The Guns of Brixton by The Clash, giving these punk classics the DTH twist -and of course they played many classics from the Die Toten Hosen back catalogue.

On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the recordings, the band are re-releasing the album Only for a visit: Die Toten Hosen unplugged in the Vienna Burgtheater on December 4th, 2020 in a vinyl edition, limited to only five thousand copies – all. numbered and with a 24-page booklet with many unpublished photos from this memorable event.

We recommend you put your order in for this exclusive limited edition vinyl today – we have – it will sell out!
