Tue & Wed, May 12-13, 20:00; Koncerthuset, Koncertsalen, Emil Holms Kanal 20, Cph S; tickets: from 490kr; nickcave.com
Emotionally intense and armed with an absurd lyrical obsession with death, religion, love and violence, rock musician Nick Cave is often referred to as the ‘Prince of Darkness’.
Best known as the frontman of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the singer has created a name for himself as a singer, poet and gifted lyricist.
He’s a man of many talents, and you’d be foolish to miss this gig … if you can get a ticket. Despite playing two concerts at Koncerthuset, the situation isn’t looking good as it’s waiting list only, so maybe your best option is to search online. (PM)
