Nitzer Ebb plots first North American tour in nearly decade around European festival dates

EBM giants Nitzer Ebb, who reformed late last year and played a handful of dates in December, today announced an 18-date, two-leg North American tour ahead of their planned appearances at a spate of European summer festivals and additional concerts into the fall.

The first leg of the North American tour, announced on the band’s website, opens May 9 in Boston and continues through May 26 in Dallas. Following those European summer festival appearances, the band returns to North America for a second round of dates that begin Sept. 19 in Austin, Texas, and wrap up Oct. 5 in Los Angeles. Watch Nitzer Ebb’s website for full ticket information.

The current tour, which will include the group’s first U.S. shows since 2010, finds Nitzer Ebb mainstays Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy joined by original drummer David Gooday, back in the fold for the first time since 1987, and Simon Granger of Stark. It follows the release last year of deluxe reissues of the band’s full catalog on CD and a pair of giant vinyl box sets.

  1. How can you not play in Detroit?

  2. YES! Awesome news. Just got my tix

  3. Chicago Yes! Last time I saw them was with Depeche Mode on the “Music For The Masses” tour. Holy crap am I old…

    • That was the Word Violation Tour in 90, wasn’t it? Loved that show. Seen them solo about 3 times since then on tours.

      • @dj Kenny – you’re right! Nitzer Ebb just released “Showtime” and was on the World Violation Tour – Showtime/Violator two great albums of 1990. Mode’s “Music for the Masses” gig at Alpine Valley [had to check my ticket stub] had Echo & The Bunnymen opening up.

  4. I love these guys. They put on such a great show.

  5. Any chance any additional dates will be added for Chicago? Any plans to tour after this run, maybe in 2020?
