Nina Hagen - Rockpalast Germany 1999

We think it only fair to admit that Beehive Candy has been a little gentle just lately with our selection of live concert material. 

Well to help rectify this situation who better than the multi talented and highly energised legend that is Nina Hagen.

This is Nina live in concert at Rockpalast in Bonn, Germany back on the 28th August 1999. The gig consists of a number of her original songs of which some are sung in English and some covers of well known English language songs that are sung in German.

All of which provides some incredible twists and turns. As I do not speak German at all (except to say please and thank you badly) I can only guess of what is being said between numbers however whatever the language one cannot mistake high energy, passion and an element of the surreal. If you are not familiar with Nina Hagen but love any of the genres described below you will I think find this introduction a fascinating experience, if you are then this is a must have (yes we do say that on occasion but only when we think it is right). The band also deserve a mention - they are superb.
