Following the surprise release of their spellbinding seventeenth studio album Ghosteen, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have announced a European tour taking place next spring in support of the critically acclaimed record.
The tour begins April of 2020 with two nights in Lisbon, Portugal, and continues through Spain and into the Netherlands and Belgium before heading over to the UK, with the first show in Birmingham.
Next on the itinerary are gigs in Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Ireland, Leeds before closing out the UK leg of the tour with two nights in London at the O2.
After dates in Germany, Switzerland, Scandinavia (including two nights in Denmark), Italy and Eastern Europe, Cave and the band have boldly decided to end the tour with a concert in Tel Aviv, Israel, a decision that will certainly court more controversy, as Cave had previously clashed with musicians such as Brian Eno, and Roger Waters over the BDS movement boycotting performances in the Middle-Eastern Country.
Cave had previously alluded to the controversy in a recent post in his Personal AMA blog, The Red Hand Files issue #66, expounding on his opinions of free speech and “Woke” culture.
