September 2017. Summer is over, it’s been a good year (touch wood), and something big is being showcased in Bournemouth. It’s been simmering to perfection for just over a year, and Nick Cave is the chef. The Bad Seeds are kicking off their European 8-week tour hit list at the BIC, and to say we’re excited is an understatement.
Following their riveting 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are back on the frontline, preparing to blow us away with a string of tour dates. It’s been three years since the Australian 8-piece band have blessed us with live shows, and where better to indulge in the experience than the vast Bournemouth International Centre on Sunday 24th of September.
Skeleton Tree, an album that shares Cave’s heart-felt journey through loss and reassurance, sets the bar for any album that exists to heal fathomless pain. Accompanied by an Andrew Dominik-directed feature film, One More Time With Feeling, the album charted at number 1 in 8 countries, reaching number 2 in the UK (OCC) and recently becoming certified silver.
The BIC will be the home of Nick Cave & The Bad seeds’ musical journey for one night only, a chance to see live performances of new cuts as well as tracks picked from classic albums such as 2013’s Push The Sky Away and 1997’s The Boatman’s Call that is absolutely not to be missed. To celebrate, we’re giving away a pair of DICE tickets to the value of £20 each- head to our Facebook page for information on how to enter.
