Regarded as one of the best live acts, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds perform in support of their hugely acclaimed new album Ghosteen - described as one of the most moving & powerful albums of his career.

Thursday 14 and Friday 15 May 2020.

The 17th full-length studio release for Australian rock band is influenced in part by the accidental death of Nick Cave's 15-year old son in 2015 and is considered the third and final part of trilogy of albums that includes 2013's Push the Sky Away and 2016's Skeleton Tree.

Ghosteen sees Cave restrained and introspective, half singing, half speaking over a mix of piano and slow drifting electronics. He sounds vulnerable but not beaten. There are a lot of mentions of love in the lyrics, soft supportive backing vocals and an attractive warmth to the way Galleon Ship's high synth sounds open the song wide, or the surprise falsetto he acquires late on in Sun Forest.
