Nick Cave brings speaking events to Australia & New Zealand

Earlier this year in the US and Ireland, Nick Cave debuted a series of speaking events combining music and open discussion with the audience.

Cave now brings these special evenings to Australia & New Zealand, where he will take questions from the audience on all manner of subjects and perform some of his most beloved songs on piano.

The relationship between Cave and his audience has always been open and intense, but has deepened during recent shows with the Bad Seeds, inspiring these unconventional and unique evenings of unfiltered, unscripted and unmoderated Q&A.

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 up.Nick Cave

Between stark, gorgeous performances of key songs like “Skeleton Tree," “The Mercy Seat” and "God Is In The House," Cave was wry, genial and funny as hell. Billboard

This is a striking turnaround when you’re used to seeing icons in all their bombast and mythos. Here, you are getting them unmediated by journalists, you are getting them in an unfiltered and unedited form, you are getting them in a human state without the guise of stardom in full-force. Stereogum
