Nick Cave and Warren Ellis Australian Carnage Tour
Between them, Nick Cave and his bandmate Warren Ellis have made some of Australia's most indelible music with their bands Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman and Dirty Three. When Cave sits at the piano and Ellis brandishes his violin or viola, beautiful worlds are created and stories told. The music can feel dangerous, frail, romantic and righteous.
Even though the pair, who met in 1993, have composed and recorded scores and worked on many projects, this is the first time they have toured Australia as a duo. They were already scheduled to perform two shows at Hanging Rock in the Macedon Ranges in November but, after they sold out, they decided to add a stack more shows and call it the Australian Carnage tour.
Tickets are on sale Friday July 29 at 10am (local time) from nickcave.com.
