Most of you are familiar with our friend Jonathan Ganley’s photo essay and recollections of The Birthday Party’s 1983 Auckland Show. This time, Jon was guest photographer at the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds December 6th concert at Auckland Civic. Above is one of Jon’s analog images of the evening. I love the old-timey quality of this shot, with the gauzy back light and that iconic spectral shadow of Cave pointing at his audience. More here.*

“Nick comes on to rousing applause, walking like a slightly drunken gazelle….
He tells a funny story about his first meeting with former Bad Seed Blixa Bargeld who would only speak German to him (“and I didn’t speak German”) but then eventually spoke in perfect English.
Someone ask when was the last time he saw the late Birthday Party member Roland S Howard: “We had lunch together in Fitzroy St in St Kilda. Mick Warren and I ran into him, we talked about stuff . . . and then he borrowed $50!”
UPDATE: More photos & reviews from Saturday’s show:
I thought that since we won’t get any new album in the near future that I’d share a bootleg once in a while.

Nick Cave will be touring The UK and Europe this Spring. He will be joined by Warren Ellis, Barry Adamson, Thomas Wydler and Martyn Casey for more intimate concert. According to Nick Cave: “The aim is to try to create a unique show – something special and out of the ordinary.”
Here is the full list of concerts. Note that a 2nd London date has been added on May 2nd at the Apollo Hammersmith. Most cities are already sold out (thank you scalpers!). In case you weren’t lucky to grab a ticket, feel free to join the group I’ve created on Facebook which will help fans get connected to swap/sell their unwanted tickets.
I can’t believe the European tour is already over! Feels like yesterday (last Febuary) when I bought my tickets!
Here is a recap so to speak of this tour. You can find each show by date with the setlist and sometimes some fun bonus.
Don’t forget to check this post to read the reviews that some of us have shared. The Nick Cave Online Forums also have a ton of fun reviews/fan encounters. You need to register to read the forums but it’s worth it, we are a friendly bunch!
If you want to add something, don’t hesitate to comment! Hope everyone enjoyed this tour and alrady has tickets to the next one! :)
