Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: North American Tour!

I can finally let those of you out there, who actually visit Sixeyes, know that Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are coming to North America this fall. This isn't 'news', but I held off until I had some tickets to see him and the band 'up close and personal' in my own dirty little hands (I cannot believe how easy it was to get these tickets, now Mr Tom Waits has got to get his wrinkled ass up here to Toronto for Christ sake. Jesus, come on, Tom). So, I've got five months to wait for this Toronto show and it should be worth every second if Cave and the band are as good as The Abattoir Blues Tour double DVD shows them to be.

Here are all the upcoming dates for Mr Cave and the Seeds in support of their fantastic new album Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!:

05-07 London, England - Hammersmith Apollo
05-08 London, England - Hammersmith Apollo
05-16 Oslo, Norway - Spektrum

  1. Really torn on this tour. hated the two albums prior to Lazarus and I'm not sure they can bring it anymore. Not a cheap ticket either. On the otherhand, the NMSWP tour is one of my fondest concert memories. What to do.
