Nick Cave to host fan Q&As on tour

The musician had previously teased an event that would let him converse with fans

Nick Cave has announced a new tour made up of “conversation events”.

The series will give the fans the opportunity to speak directly to the musician through Q&A sessions.

Cave teased the tour last week, writing in an open letter that he felt a need to communicate “directly to people in a more personal way”. “There seems to be some sort of understanding that now exists with our audience,” Cave wrote.

“The idea of an open dialogue with them seems a worthwhile thing to explore. Perhaps we might try and set up a series of events that are dialogues or conversations or something. Let things flow a little.”

In a press release, he said that, while he wasn’t sure what would happen at the events, he has “always loved the Q&A format – not the formal onstage interviews that precede them, but the questions from the audience afterwards.”

“The audience tends to ask more challenging, revealing, playful and ultimately serious questions,” he said. “You never know what you are going to get. They can be fearless and they can go deep.

“The audience can ask me anything and I’ll do my best to answer,” he continued. “I do have some things to say. I can always play some songs at the piano if it all goes horribly wrong. But, I don’t know, I’ve got a good feeling about this one.”

Cave will make four stops on his conversation tour in the US. He will appear at:

Northampton, MA, Academy of Music Theatre (April 30)
Boston, MA, Boch Center Shubert Theatre (May 1)

New York, NY, Peter Norton Symphony Space (3)
Brooklyn, NY, Murmrr Theatre (5)

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (March 9) at 10am EST. For more information, visit Nick Cave’s official website.

Last month, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released the first trailer for Distant Sky, their forthcoming concert film which tells the story of one night on their European tour last year.

Captured at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena in October 2017, the new film will show the band performing recent cuts off latest album ‘Skeleton Tree‘, along with some of their most recognisable hits from a career spanning more than 30 years.
