A cooler blend of culture

Rock’s ‘Prince of Darkness’ Nick Cave to host Q&A sessions across the country

Nick Cave @2x

Rock poet, legendary muso, Prince of Darkness, and oft-times arrogant prick, Nick Cave has announced he will return to Australia in January 2019 for a series of special in-conversation shows.

The Bad Seeds frontman will host candid Q&A sessions across the country, also throwing in some solo piano performances of classic Cave songs.

Already having hosted similar shows in the US and Ireland, the loose format was inspired by a “deep connection” Cave says he experienced with fans during his 2017 world tour.

“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. 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.”

So start making note of your burning questions, but don’t go too deep, for as Nick once told Cream, “You know, just because you’re known as something by the press it doesn’t mean you are [that]. They make some reference to your lyrics being dark and that’s the end of it. I have to say, I’ve written some of the most light-infused lyrics around.”

Then again, he also said, “Look, unless you’ve got serious suicide on the way, don’t listen to my stuff.”

His tongue firmly planted in his cheek, I assume.  Antonino Tati
