Extra! - CONVERSATIONS WITH NICK CAVE
An Evening of Talk and Music
Following a sold out run in Australia & New Zealand, Nick Cave brings his unique conversation events to Europe and the UK. Appearing for a series of evenings of music and open discussion, he will take questions from the audience on all manner of subjects and perform some of his most beloved songs on piano.
Described by Cave as “an exercise in connectivity”, no subject is sacred and audiences are encouraged to be bold and challenging, confrontational and unafraid.
The relationship between Cave and his audience has always been open and intense, but deepened during his recent shows with the Bad Seeds, inspiring these unconventional and unique evenings of unfiltered, unscripted and unmoderated Q&A.
“I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable - in the recent live shows we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up.” Nick Cave
Watching a legend in command of an audience, never quite knowing what would happen next, was a genuine thrill. Sydney Morning Herald
Nick Cave’s intimate Conversations show is bold, enlightening and completely gripping. ABC
Between stark, gorgeous performances of key songs like “Skeleton Tree," “The Mercy Seat” and "God Is In The House," Cave was wry, genial and funny as hell. Billboard
This is a striking turnaround when you’re used to seeing icons in all their bombast and mythos. Here, you are getting them unmediated by journalists, you are getting them in an unfiltered and unedited form, you are getting them in a human state without the guise of stardom in full-force. Stereogum
