Nick Cave has announced plan to take his ‘Conversations’ tour to North America by revealing a new lengthy string of dates.
Having launched the unusual and unique event in New Zealand and Australia before eventually moving over to Europe, “Conversations With Nick Cave” allows 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.
Explaining the shows, Cave said: “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.”
