Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds announce 2014 tour, but decide to skip Boston …for now

nick-cave-the-bad-seeds

In March, we here in Boston got treated to Nick Cave live at the Orpheum Theatre. In October, we got Nick Cave & the Ad Seeds live at a T.T. The Bear’s Place’s Halloween Show. 2014, however, will be much more Cave-less. Talk about dark.

Cave today announced a 19-date North American tour for June and July 2014, celebrating the release of his new record, Live from KCRW (Bad Seed Ltd). But there’s no Boston date — for now. The tour wraps up July 31 in Toronto, and there are a few open dates between July 26 in New York and July 29 in Detroit. So it’s possible we could get a date somewhere in there, or via a tour extension. Hell, he’s in the area.

So stay tuned… in the meantime, get Ad Frank on Line 1. We may need his services. From the presser, with full dates post-jump.

This tour announcement precedes the release of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Live from KCRW (Bad Seed Ltd). The fourth official live album in the band’s catalogue features stripped-down songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Push the Sky Away, as well as other tracks from their discography. Live from KCRW will be available November 29 in both CD and double vinyl formats. The vinyl edition will include bonus tracks “Into my Arms” and “God is in The House.” A full list of Record Store Day distributors can be found at www.recordstoreday.com/Venues. Live from KCRW will see wide release digitally on December 3. The album will also be available as a digital deluxe bundle with Push the Sky Away.
