Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
From the Promoter
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' newly announced North American tour will kick off at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY on May 26, 2017. The 19-date tour will make its way across the continent and will conclude June 29 at Los Angeles' historic Greek Theatre.
The band were last in North America in 2014 with critical response being best described as ‘blown away en masse’:
“Visions of murder, catastrophe, transfiguration and desperate love issued from the stage, set to dirges, stomps and inexorable crescendos.” NEW YORK TIMES
“Right up there amongst the best frontmen of this or any generation. No one on the circuit can both command and terrify a crowd quite like Nick Cave.” DALLAS OBSERVER
“Thanks, Nick Cave, for ruining pretty much every other show we’re going to see for the rest of the month. Or year. Or ever. There’s no way anybody is going to top what we saw on Saturday night… it was a mind-blowing evening of rock ‘n’ roll.” NASHVILLE SCENE
“Towering over everyone else, however, were… the Bad Seeds, whose merciless performance, delivered with the fury of hellhounds unleashed, easily stole Sunday from any up-and-comers…” OC REGISTER
September saw the release of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ 16th studio album 'Skeleton Tree' and the companion film 'One More Time With Feeling’ directed by Andrew Dominik. The theatrical success of the film was such that a second run is now confirmed nationwide starting December 1 (Tickets available for purchase at nickcave.com). 'Skeleton Tree' topped the chart across the globe and achieved the bands highest US chart position to date. Songs from the album will be brought to life for live audiences alongside other Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds classics and deep cuts.
The touring line up is as follows:
