Nick Cave

Saint Nick Cave of surreal cinematic fame has given fans an intimate gift, and no, it isn’t an item from Britney Spears’ new sleepwear line.

In reality, it’s a big list of very rare and very Europe-based ‘solo concerts’ he’s doing in spring 2015, on which he’ll be joined on stage by only four members of The Bad Seeds – Warren Ellis on guitar/additional strings/loops, Martyn Casey on bass, Thomas Wydler on drums and Barry Adamson on keys. With them, he’ll be in singing and playing solo songs AND tracks off his and The Bad Seeds’ latest LP, ‘Push The Sky Away’. So yeah, definitely ‘solo concerts’.

“The aim is to try to create a unique show – something special and out of the ordinary”, says Cave, stating the self-evident.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, and listings for the UK part of the tour are as follows:

26 Apr: Glasgow, Royal Concert Hall
28 Apr: Edinburgh, Playhouse
29 Apr: Gateshead, Sage
30 Apr: Nottingham, Royal Concert Hall
3 May: London, Royal Albert Hall
