German metal band Rammstein announced a continuation of its European stadium tour for 2024, after a summer overshadowed by allegations of sexual misconduct by lead singer Till Lindemann, reported dpa.

"Today Rammstein announce their European Stadium Tour 2024!" the Berlin-based band posted on social media on Tuesday.

Tickets are set to go on sale on October 18.

The gigs will be similar in scope to the third part of the band's European tour this year, dpa learned. From May to August, Rammstein played a two dozen concerts in 16 European venues.

In recent months, several women had raised allegations of improper conduct against Lindemann, in a case that garnered widespread attention across Germany.

Some had claimed they were selected and recruited during concerts and asked if they wanted to come to the after-show party. According to some of the women, sexual acts took place.

Lindemann consistently denied the allegations.

Public prosecutors in Berlin and Lithuania have since dropped their investigations.

The evaluation of the available evidence did not provide any indication that Lindemann "performed sexual acts on women against their will," the public prosecutor's office in Berlin wrote in a detailed statement at the end of August.
