ENUFF Z’ NUFF To Provide The Spice At GLAMFEST 2023

“It’s hard rock and heavy metal. No rules, no regulations. Expose all those warts and tattoos that we carry as a band.”


Enuff Z Nuff have rocked the lighter side of the metal world for the better part of four decades, with their enigmatic and irresistible frontman Chip Z Nuff ushering in generation after generation of music lovers and taking them under his wing.

Following the release of their 20th album Finer Than Sin late last year, Enuff Z Nuff return to Australia as part of the Glam Fest extravaganza, which kicks off in Brisbane on January 25 before hitting Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney over consecutive days.

Glam Fest sees a mixed bag of genres, with artists such as Faster Pussycat, Pretty Boy Floyd, Eclipse, Wednesday 13 and Tuff joined by a host of local acts.

Chip sat down with HEAVY to talk about the tour and plenty more.

“I’ll tell you Kris, I’m really looking forward to Australia,” he enthused. “Glam Fest 2023 is really shaping up to be something that’s absolutely massive. It’s not your usual stadium tour where you’re out there, and you have to pay $200 or $300 to see some of your favourite MTV bands. You get them all for a nice price, and they’re all coming from North America and around the country. Faster Pussycat – fantastic live. We did a tour with them last year and it was absolutely incredible. Every show completely sold out. You’ve got Pretty Boy Floyd, Eclipse, can’t wait to see my buddy Wednesday 13, Tuff will be out there – my old friend Stevie – it’s a bridge truck full of bands from all around the country and getting together and celebrating hard rock and heavy metal, and it’s gonna be absolutely fantastic.”

The last time Enuff Z Nuff were out here was at the very start of COVID, with the band very fortunate to make it out of the country before lockdown.

“The last time was February 20th, 2020, and I remember picking up a newspaper at a restaurant – I never read the paper – and it said the prime minister of transportation in England says if you’re a foreigner don’t come here. And we were on a major tour. We started off in Australia, and we were gonna work our way through England and then come back after the U.K and do Italy, Spain and France, and it all got shut down. We barely made it home on time. As a matter of fact, when Enuff Z Nuff flew back to the States I remember it was on the news where the President was saying they are shutting down the borders. It was incredible (laughs). We did seven shows on that tour with Winger – those cats were great, I love Kip Winger – and they were all very well attended, and we thought ‘would we ever get a chance to come back here again? Well, we said prayers and they’ve come true. We’re coming back!”

In the full interview Chip talks more about Glamfest, who he is most looking forward to playing with, the different genres represented and why that’s a good thing, what they plan on doing in Australia, their recent album Finer Than Sin, settling in to the role as lead vocalist, how difficult that decision was, last years Beatles tribute album Hard Rock Nite, the early days of Enuff Z Nuff, future plans and more.
