Nina Hagen’s Gospel Punk

Nina Hagen’s Personal Jesus was one of my favorite albums of 2010. Her September 17, 2010, concert in Paris was broadcast on TV, and the entire show (30 songs) is on youtube. Watch a few of the best clips below. I also found an interview with Nina speaking in English about the album and her new “gospel punk” sound.

Nina Hagen says the “Future is Now”

German opera singer / punk rocker / cosmic diva Nina Hagen is one of the most outrageous and colorful women in music, and she has one of the most amazing voices ever, to top it off – an unmistakable voice that you will probably never forget. I found a great concert video from the 1999 Rockpalast Festival and some earlier performances, so enjoy! This is an AMAZING concert. Watch highlights below or save the complete mp4 video. There’s also an mp3 version.
