Nitzer Ebb hit the USA for a brand new tour + rare skateboard video of'Fun To Be Had' (1984 footage)

Prior to the Nitzer Ebb concert at Respectable Street in West Palm Beach, the band’s frontman Douglas McCarthy suffered complications from a pre-existing, non Covid related medical condition. He was admitted to hospital and is now stable and undergoing continued treatment and observation so the band’s management informs.

The band is currently on tour including the original band members David Gooday and Simon Granger.
