In Conversation With Mad Genius Nick Cave
Existing at the cross section between revered rock god, mythological poet and searing intellectual mind, Nick Cave has created subversively sublime melancholy under various guises since his post-punk debut as frontman of the Birthday Party in the 70s. Fresh off the back of a whirlwind 2017 spent touring Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds' 16th studio album Skeleton Tree, the Prince of Darkness is inviting audience members to glimpse the inner workings of his unorthodox mind during a four-night-only conversational series this Spring.
With his mad genius extending beyond the realms of rock music to include novels, films, acting and film score composing, the modern renaissance man's relationship with his audience has evolved just as much as his relationship with his art. On tour in 2017, Cave became increasingly aware that his shows had become communal events, inspiring him to explore the open bond between himself and his fans further with this special "So, What Do You Want To Know?" series. Mr. Cave is set to be a fascinating open book, answering any questions the audience dares to answer.
