Nick Cave will tour a short series of on-stage conversations with audiences in Boston and New York it was announced today.
Cave says he got the idea during his 2017 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds world tour and Q and A sessions he had during that time.
“To be honest I am not sure what is going to happen at these events,” Cave said in a release. “I have always loved the Q and A format – not the formal onstage interviews that precede them but the questions from the audience afterwards.
“The audience tends to ask more challenging, revealing, playful and ultimately serious questions,” he said. “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,” Cave said. “The audience can ask me anything and I’ll do my best to answer.”
