  1. Thanks to everybody who has contributed so far! I think it was amazing Summer tour!

    Personally I was supposed to go to Brooklyn and NY but only ended up going to the NY show. It was my first time visiting the city and it totally won me over! Sorry Nick! lol But I was there at 10:30am on Sunday and even if it was very hot, the day kinda flew by and my friends and I were front row. The show was absolutely amazing. They had one minor issue at the beginning and Nick said: “We will have to leave until it’s fixed because I don’t tell jokes!” But it was resolved very quickly. He really gave everything he had for each song. He seemed in a very good mood and he was smiling quite often and interacting with fans. The highlight for me was Sad Waters because I had been dying to hear it live. Such a beautiful sounds. From Her to Eternity sounded absolutely amazing terrifying as well.

    I was exhausted by the end of the show but my friends convinced me to try and go to the stage door. We ran there asap and Nick was there casually sitting and smoking a cigarette! Kinda surreal to see him like that in the street. We gave him a few minutes then he signed/took pictures with a bunch of other fans. After that he came to our little group, asked how we were doing and we took pictures. It was fast but he was really friendly.

    If you had told 12 year old me who was obsessed with Murder Ballads that she would be standing next to Nick Cave, she wouldn’t have believed you. 😉 lol

  2. I was lucky enough to go to five of the west coast shows in addition to the LA screening/Q+A so thought I’d just mention a couple of highlights for me before the tour resumes. Highlights from the shows include Nick bringing Mark Lanegan on stage to sing the Weeping Song; the band playing Do You Love Me at two of the shows: Stranger Than Kindness at one show (or two?); Higgs Boson Blues – epic every single time; Nick or another band member occasionally making a little mistake and Nick getting a big smile on his face; and at the seated shows (LA Shrine and Portland) Nick literally walking out into the audience maybe 15+ rows on the backs of chairs like Jesus walking on water. I’ve never seen him do that before. He did it during Stagger Lee in LA and twice in Portland for Stagger Lee and Push the Sky Away.

    The Q+A was great to understand a little more about Nick and get a feel for his personality while he still maintained his mystery. This was my second time seeing 20000 Days on Earth and it is an astounding, beautiful film that I think even those who don’t know Nick Cave – but are interested in the creative process, music, art and great film making – would appreciate.

    Personal highlights include being on the plane with the entire band from Portland to San Francisco and having a series of interactions with Nick (despite being so nervous I was feeling sick to my stomach) and getting some photos with him under the glow of the fluorescent lights in SFO baggage claim. I got the chance to tell him a personal story of mine related to one of his songs that he seemed genuinely touched by. And then I had the chance to meet him again (and he remembered me) after one of the SF shows (with more photos).

    So envious of everyone who still has NCTBS shows to look forward to. Enjoy!

  3. Just got home from the first San Francisco night. They were simply awesome. This is the set list though the order might be slightly off. I’m doing it from memory:

    We Real Cool
    Jubilee Street
    Tupelo
    From Her To Eternity
    Red Right Hand
    Mermaids
    West Country Girl
    Sad Waters
    Into My Arms
    God Is In The House
    The Weeping Song (w/Mark Lanegan)
    Mercy Seat
    Higgs Boson Blues
    Stagger Lee
    Push The Sky Away

    Deanna
    Papa Won’t Leave You Henry
    Jack The Ripper
    Lyre of Orpheus

    Now I wish I’d bought a ticket for tomorrow as well. The sound was really good as well.

      • Aww, Morgan, thanks! I hope your health is on the up and up. A dose of Nick and the Seeds is good for the body, mind & soul. I hope you get to see them yourself if you haven’t.

        I read a little something that made it sound like they’re already hashing out ideas for a potential next release, and Nick sounded excited by the prospect.

        Anyway, be well,

        Chris

  4. Seattle set list was much the same as Louisville list above but only one encore song (The Lyre of Orpheus). But the highlight was when Nick brought Mark Lanegan on stage to sing The Weeping Song with him – incredible! I’m going to several other shows – really hoping he mixes the set lists up a bit.

  5. Awesome! I will be in NY at the time of the shows there but sadly I probably won’t be able to go. Do you know/think there will be any signings or any chances to meet the band in NY?

  6. I went to the Louisville show. First time I’ve seen him since the Lollapalooza tour in ’94.

    It was an amazing show. Nick was in rare form, and the Seeds were tight. Here’s the setlist from what I can remember (not the correct order).

    We No Who U R
    Jubilee Street
    Tupelo
    From Her To Eternity
    Red Right Hand
    Mermaids
    West Country Girl
    Into My Arms
    Mercy Seat
    Stagger Lee
    God Is In The House
    Higgs Bosin Blues

    Push The Sky Away

    Papa Won’t Leave you Henry
    The Ship Song
    The Lyre of Orpheus

    Merch was the same that they have at in the store, plus a 2014 tour shirt.

    I think there was a poster (I saw people carrying around poster tubes), but there weren’t any when I got there, so maybe limited? If there is one, and someone is willing to pick up one for me, I’d gladly pay.

    Probably going to try and catch him in Detroit.
