Nick Cave

Nick Cave is to chat and play live at a special gala screening of his part-real, part-surreal ‘day in the life’ film, the widely-acclaimed ‘20,000 Days On Earth’.

Showing live at the Barbican in London on 17 Sep, the film, live set and Q&A (which will feature Nick speaking beside Bad Seeds men Warren Ellis and Barry Adamson, as well as ‘20,000 Days’ directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard) will also be beamed in real-time into 150 British/Irish cinemas. Details here.

And if any fans miss that, or wish to watch the film again, it’ll have a wider release on 19 Sep. ‘20,000 Days On Earth’, by the way, mixes semi-rehearsed scenes of a day in Cave’s life with dream sequences and never-yet-seen “verité observation” of his “creative cycle”, and has an original score composed by Cave and Warren Ellis. And Kylie’s in it!
