Nitzer Ebb’s first North American tour in nearly a decade will find the EBM giants a bit shorthanded as mainstays Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy will not be joined on the first leg by original drummer David Gooday and Stark’s Simon Granger.

The group informed fans early today “with great sadness” that “unforeseen delays” with Gooday’s and Granger’s visas mean they will miss the first North American leg of the tour, which opens Thursday in Boston. A second North American leg is slated for the fall. (See Nitzer Ebb’s full tour dates below.)

The group writes:

The good news is that Bon and Douglas are excited and ready for great shows despite the change of circumstances and that David and Simon will be joining them for rest of the tour starting in Barcelona May 30th.”

Nitzer Ebb reformed reformed late last year and played a handful of dates in December, with Gooday back in the lineup for the first time since 1987. The touring follows the release last year of deluxe reissues of the band’s full catalog on CD and a pair of giant vinyl box sets.
