Nick Cave announces new “conversations” tour dates
Nick Cave has announced more dates to his intimate ‘Q&A’ tour with dates in the UK, Europe and the US following a string of sell-out events in Australia and New Zealand.
The unusual and unique event has been given the name “Conversations With Nick Cave” and will allow audiences to ask Cave any question they want directly: “I have always loved the Q&A format—not the formal onstage interviews that preceded them but the questions from the audience afterwards,” Cave explained in a statement.
“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,” he added.
Cave will answer questions from his fans and play some of his most iconic songs on the piano. Kicking things off in May, the Bad Seeds frontman will be in Germany before moving to Norway, Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Belgium.
“To be honest I am not sure what is going to happen at these events. 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. 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.”
