Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds invite fans to special filmed gig for ‘20,000 Days On Earth’ film

The gig will feature in Cave's forthcoming film about his 20,000th day on earth

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds have invited fans to attend a special London gig, which will be filmed for Cave’s new documentary film.

The band will play an intimate sow at London’s Koko on November 3. Fans wishing to attend can register to purchase tickets via a ballot on the band’s website by Monday, October 7 at 9am.

20,000 Days on Earth will see Cave reunited with previous collaborator Kylie Minogue, who featured on the band’s 1996 album ‘Murder Ballads’, dueting with Cave on the track ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’. Minogue will make a cameo appearance in the drama-documentary, which is directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard and tells the story of Cave’s 20,000th day on earth. It is scheduled for release in 2014.


Forsyth and Pollard previously worked on the music videos for all the singles from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds‘ 2008 album ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!’ and will helm the fictionalised account of 24 hours in the frontman’s life. Ray Winstone will make a cameo appearance in the film, which is entirely unscripted and also features unrehearsed scenes.
