Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

“Visions of murder, catastrophe, transfiguration and desperate love issued from the stage…set to dirges, stomps and inexorable crescendos.”– NEW YORK TIMES

“Right up there amongst the best frontmen of this or any generation. No one on the circuit can both command and terrify a crowd quite like Nick Cave.”– DALLAS OBSERVER

“Thanks, Nick Cave, for ruining pretty much every other show we’re going to see for the rest of the month. Or year. Or ever. There’s no way anybody is going to top what we saw on Saturday night… it was a mind-blowing evening of rock ‘n’ roll.” — NASHVILLE SCENE

Following a wildly captivating – and completely sold out – North American tour in early 2013, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return to the U.S. in the summer of 2014 to take care of some unfinished business.

Throughout this jaunt, the band will be bringing their fervent live show to familiar cities as well as municipalities that have yet to be graced (or confronted) with a Bad Seeds live experience.

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 catalog will feature 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 29th in both CD and double vinyl formats exclusively at Record Store Day stores. The vinyl edition will include bonus tracks “Into My Arms” and “God Is In The House.”

OVO Fest 2014

OVO Fest. August 3rd will feature those inimitable hipsters Outkast with their brand
of infectious music. Andre 3000 and Big Boi are masters of commanding an audience with their catchy tunes.
Their outstanding hit “Hey Ya!” ushered them onto the scene with verve. Their music blends funk, soul, R’n B, electronic music and jazz. It’s great to see these two back on stage.

August 4th will feature none other than Toronto “home boy” Drake. His smooth, endearing voice has captured listeners from the moment he dawned on the seen. Since his debut disc Thank Me Later, he has not disappointed music lovers. It reached Number One Billboard during its first week of release. Currently, his massive track “Hold On, We’re Going Home” proves he’s got talent to burn! When Drake’s on home turf, nothing can stop him. He will hit it out of the park!
