Watch Nena Sing “99 Luftballons” For The First Time In America 32 Years After It Hit

Nena — the German artist who sang the ’84 hit single “99 Luftballons” — never toured the States even after the track became a smash hit, peaking at #2 and losing first place to Van Halen’s “Jump.” Nena recorded a version of the song in English titled “99 Red Balloons,” but the German version remained popular in the US for a long time. 32 years later, Nena is touring the country for the first time ever. Watch her perform “99 Luftballons” at San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom below.
