Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds announce European tour

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have announced a tour across Europe.

Performing in the continent for the first time since the release of last year’s Skeleton Tree, Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, Thomas Wydler, Jim Sclavunos, Conway Savage, George Vjestica and Larry Mullins will start off in Bournemouth in September and finish off in Tel Aviv in November.

Speaking about playing live following the deeply personal nature of the last record, Cave said in a press release, “We’ve been in a strange place, I’m coming out and blinking into the light… It’s good to be playing again.”

The tour follows the DVD release of One More Time With Feeling, the cinema release which documented the recording process of the album.

Tickets go on sale here at 9AM on 17 February. Check out the full list of dates below.
