Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Hold On To Yourself
Live @Palace Theater, Melbourne AU, 6th January 2009
Tx to Vulphus
Here’s an anecdote about the concert from our friend, Melbourne Deb, who said Nicky was so hot that she had to put two bottles of ice water in her bra!
“you know his audience just loves him. the band comes on first to applause, and then nick steps out and the whole place just erupts with claps and everyone has their arms in the air, out stretched and clapping, for their hometown boy is back and they love him so. it is like a collective embrace, we are all reaching out to our saviour. after every song the same thing happens, the clapping and the roar, the whistles, and the screams (me included, screaming out whoa, after each song). he always gives us two hrs of performance. it must be a special home town treat i think, without him being sycophantic.”
Deb confided that Nick’s ‘SMD’ directive in the Stagger Lee show closer drove the hometown ladies wild. Says Deb: “i was thinking, hang on, i’m coming…”
Woo-hooo. Thanks, Deb, sounds like a helluva show. 😉
Is he a belligerent egoist, accomplished provocateur or gifted artist? Or all of the above?
At home in Melbourne on Tuesday with his hirsute band the Bad Seeds for the first of two nights at the Palace Theatre, Cave arrived on stage already triumphant, with both arms in the air, fists clenched. Self-confidence has never been an issue.
