Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace

Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace, online, 23 July 2020, from £16 - Book now

Ahead of his much-anticipated gig in Manchester next year, tune into a solo performance by Nick Cave at London’s Alexandra Palace.

One of the concerts we were most looking forward to this year was Nick Cave at Manchester Arena, originally scheduled for May 2020. With the rescheduled date in April 2021 currently feeling lightyears away, his announcement of a streamable, piano-based concert is happy news indeed.

Shot in June at London’s iconic Alexandra Palace by award-winning cinematographer Robbie Ryan, the concert will be available to stream for one night only. It will feature songs from Cave’s extensive back catalogue, including rare tracks that most fans will be hearing for the first time. Expect early Bad Seeds and Grinderman material, right through to the most recent Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album, Ghosteen.

Whilst no concert film can approach the experience of seeing Cave, one of the world’s great live acts, perform live, this does sound pretty special in its own right. Apart from the odd song in his Conversations With Nick Cave events, it’s a rarity to catch him solo these days, and even rarer to witness him perform a full piano set.

If only to scratch the itch until he’s back in Manchester in 2021, join in the global streaming event on 23rd July.
