NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS – THE FIRST HEADLINER OF POSITIVUS’18



Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have been announced as the first headliners of the Positivus Festival 2018. The legendary songwriter, author and actor will perform together with his most acclaimed musical companions on the closing festival day on Sunday, July 22. One-day and two-day tickets go on sale today.

 
Triumph, the manifesto of rock and roll and the extraordinary answer to the incomprehensible are just a few of the epithets that music reviewers have chosen to describe the concerts of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds that have delighted people not only during this year's European tour, but throughout the band’s long and storied history. For almost 35 years, this unique band has been synonymous with dark and extravagant contemporary rock music that has won it a legion of fans all over the world. The Bad Seeds, which is founded on the ashes of Nick Cave’s previous band The Birthday Party, brings together cosmopolitan-minded visionaries who are ready to break any imagined boundaries of music to create original sound the like of which has never been heard before.  
 
Ever since the release of their debut album From Her To Eternity back in 1984, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have sounded like no other musicians on Earth, which is as true today as ever before. While the Bad Seeds have allowed themselves all kinds of experiments, including absolutely dark and absurd “horror” rock, clear and naïve garage rock and even the temptation of punk rock, they have always kept their signature character, making the band instantly recognisable from the very first beats of their songs.  
 
Every album by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds has its own story, and the latest, Skeleton Tree, is no exception. It is full of sorrow and pain due to the fact that Cave’s teenage son Arthur died during its recording - one can only guess what emotions and dialogues with the universe are encoded in this record. However, Cave has left the tragedy in the past and, even at 60 years of age, is still in excellent shape on stage, as well as being incredibly open to listeners and not hiding his emotions, including his grief. Despite the sad background to this latest album, Cave’s performances are life- affirming. Apart from featuring the music from the new album, his concerts include songs that have proved to be timeless classic, drawn from iconic albums such as The Boatman’s Call, gothic Murder Ballads and other song compilations. 
“From beauty that breaks your heart to poorly managed chaos - the band performs a surprisingly uplifting arena concert”, wrote The Guardian about Cave and the band’s appearance in the UK.
 
“This sell-out show… was surprisingly uplifting. Euphoric, even, at times. Far from cutting the sorrowful figure of an isolated man consumed by sadness, Cave took on the role of a quasi-religious leader, reaching out to hold hands with fans and ignite their emotions into a life-affirming fire of furious sound,” was the rapturous reaction of the British online newspaper The Independent, simultaneously giving Cave the title of the “gothic ringmaster”.
 
This year’s European and British concert tour is completely sold out, but it is already announced that in the next summer, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds will tour in Northern Europe, including Positivus Festival in Latvia on July 22.
