Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds add more dates to 2022 European tour

After cancelling their 2021 headlining run, the band are back on the road next summer

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have added more dates to their 2022 European tour – see the full schedule below.

The band announced the first round of dates for their upcoming tour earlier this month, after being forced to cancel a 2021 tour of Europe and the UK due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

After announcing initial dates in Greece, Germany, Sweden, Norway and more, the band have now announced further shows in Spain, Poland, France and beyond, including a headline slot at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival.

During the coronavirus pandemic, though, Cave and bandmate Warren Ellis teamed up to write and record the surprise album ‘Carnage’, which arrived in February.

In a five-star review of the album, NME said the record beckoned listeners to “take an adventurous leap into the COVID era’s dark night of the soul”.

“‘Carnage’ is arguably Cave and Ellis’ best record since The Bad Seeds’ latter day reinvention on 2013’s ‘Push The Sky Away’, or maybe even ‘Abattoir Blues’. It’s certainly two master craftsmen at the peak of their melodramatic powers.”

Elsewhere, Cave recently spoke out on whether it is possible to “separate the art from the artist” in a new post to fans on his Red Hand Files website.
