Nick Cave has announced a speaking tour of the US. He will hold four audience Q&A events beginning at the end of April.

“To be honest I am not sure what is going to happen at these events”, he says. “I have always loved the Q&A format – not the formal onstage interviews that precede them but the questions from the audience afterwards. The audience tends to ask more challenging, revealing, playful and ultimately serious questions. You never know what you are going to get. They can be fearless and they can go deep”.

He continues: “There has been a connection happening with the audience through the recent live shows where we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up and I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable. The more frank and intimate the questions, the more interesting the evening will be. The audience can ask me anything and I’ll do my best to answer. I do have some things to say. I can always play some songs at the piano if it all goes horribly wrong. But, I don’t know, I’ve got a good feeling about this one”.

Presumably if it doesn’t all go horribly wrong, there will be more events like this in other places. For now, here are the announced shows:

30 Apr: Northampton MA, Academy Of Music Theatre
1 May: Boston, Boch Center Shubert Theatre
3 May: New York, Peter Norton Symphony Space
5 May: Brooklyn, The Murmrr Theatre
