“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
Following a wildly captivating – and completely sold out – North American tour in early 2013, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return to North America in the summer of 2014 to take care of some unfinished business.
Throughout this jaunt, the band will be bringing their fervent live show to familiar cities as well as municipalities that have yet to be graced (or confronted) with a Bad Seeds live experience. A full itinerary can be found below.
On November 14, Nick Cave partnered with the Association of Alternative Newspapers (AAN) for a special invitation-only web press conference. During this conference, journalists from AAN-member publications were able to ask Nick questions about Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ upcoming tour, current & past albums and a variety of other subjects. Today, readers of AAN-member publications will receive priority access to a special 24 hour ticket pre-sale on November 19 for the newly announced 2014 dates. Along with the pre-sale, readers are also able to download “The Mercy Seat” and “Mermaids” from the forthcoming Live from KCRW album from altweeklies.com.
A special Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds fan 24 hour ticket pre-sale including VIP packages will begin at 10am on November 20 via nickcave.com.
General on-sale will commence on November 22 at 10am.
This tour announcement precedes the release of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Live from KCRW (Bad Seed Ltd). The fourth official live album in the band’s catalogue features stripped-down songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Push the Sky Away, as well as other tracks from their discography. Live from KCRW will be available November 29 in both CD and double vinyl formats. The vinyl edition will include bonus tracks “Into my Arms” and “God is in The House.” A full list of Record Store Day distributors can be found at www.recordstoreday.com/Venues. Live from KCRW will see wide release digitally on December 3. The album will also be available as a digital deluxe bundle with Push the Sky Away.
