Nick Cave celebrated Kylie Minogue’s 50th birthday by performing 1996 track ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’ live at London festival All Points East.
The duo, whose collaboration shook the pop world in the 90s, hit the stage at Victoria Park in East London while Cave and the Bad Seeds headlined the event.
The festival saw Patti Smith, Courtney Barnett, St Vincent, Marika Hackman and Nadine Shah all perform before the Bad Seeds on a lively Sunday night in London.
the track is the fifth song and lead single from the band’s ninth studio album, Murder Ballads, released on Mute Records. It was written by the band’s frontman Nick Cave and produced by Tony Cohen and Victor Van Vugt.
This is what it sounds like live in London:
