Back in October it was announced that Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds would be returning to Dublin to play a the Royal Hospital Kilmainham on Wednesday June 6.
Tickets for the show sold out in just minutes, but now some production tickets will go back on sale this Friday, 11 May at 9 am.
As well as an exciting support slot of Patti Smith and whenyoung, it’s now been confirmed that Nick Cave will participate in a live Q&A in the Abbey Theatre the evening before the headline show on Tuesday June 5.
Here’s what the press release says.
“To be honest I am not sure what is going to happen at these events. I have always loved the Q&A format – not the formal onstage interviews that precede them but the questions from the audience afterwards,” he said. “The audience tends to ask more challenging, revealing, playful and ultimately serious questions. You never know what you are going to get. They can be fearless and they can go deep. There has been a connection happening with the audience through the recent live shows where we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up and I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable. The more frank and intimate the questions, the more interesting the evening will be. The audience can ask me anything and I’ll do my best to answer. 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.”
