Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds are to play a free gig at London’s LA2 venue in WC2 on Sunday, May 10.

The central London venue holds just 1,500 people, however, fans unable to access the undoubtedly mobbed show will be able to catch Cave (pictured) and his cronies co-headlining Glastonbury’s Main Stage on June 28.

The band are staging the special one-off LA2 gig to mark the release of their compilation LP, ‘The Best Of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’, the following day. Although a limited number of tickets will be available at the venue on the night strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, fans are able to obtain tickets before the date by contacting Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ fan club magazine The Witness, c/o Restricted Area, PO Box 16902, London W10 6ZU.

More tickets are also available on the Mute Records web site.
