Anticipation is high for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds‘ appearance at Manchester Arena on Monday, during the European leg of their latest tour. The celebrated alternative rock outfit will be just one date into an eight week tour, and have already been thrilling fans with sets full of their brooding and brilliant hits.
In a career stretching over four decades, Nick Cave And The Bads Seeds were founded in Melbourne in 1983, and have since sold over five million albums worldwide to date. Their cross-genre sound encompassing gothic rock, post punk and experimental rock has gained them a deep influence in music, bringing critical and commercial acclaim as they remain one of rock’s most exciting and intriguing acts. Their sixteenth album Skeleton Tree came just one day after the premiere of One More Time With Feeling, an intimate portrait documenting the album’s production. Skeleton Tree charted at number one in eight countries and gained the band their highest ever position in the UK and US.
Following a troubling and eventful time in Nick Cave’s personal life, the announcement of the tour came with the words: “We’ve been in a strange place, I’m coming out and blinking into the light… It’s good to be playing again”.
