Nick Cave to Do Q&A's in Massachusetts and New York

by VVN Music

Australian singer/songwriter Nick Cave has set four dates, two each in the Massachusetts area and New York, where he will take questions from the audience.

So, What Do You Want to Know? will be strictly an on-stage conversation with those attending although there is some hope he may sit at the piano at some time during the evening.

According to Cave's site "The idea was inspired by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ 2017 world tour and Nick Cave’s evolving relationship with his audience. These shows became vast communal events and it is this relationship that he hopes to explore directly through this series of conversations."

Cave went on "To be honest I am not sure what is going to happen at these events. I have always loved the Q&A format — not the formal onstage interviews that precede them but the questions from the audience afterwards. The audience tends to ask more challenging, revealing, playful and ultimately serious questions. You never know what you are going to get. They can be fearless and they can go deep. There has been a connection happening with the audience through the recent live shows where we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up and I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable. The more frank and intimate the questions, the more interesting the evening will be. The audience can ask me anything and I’ll do my best to answer. I do have some things to say. I can always play some songs at the piano if it all goes horribly wrong. But, I don’t know, I’ve got a good feeling about this one."
