Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Unveil ‘Wild God’ Tour Dates

They will head out on their first headline tour of the UK and Europe since 2017 later this year

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have announced a tour of the UK and Europe in support of forthcoming album Wild God.

Marking their first headline tour of the regions since 2017, they will play 27 shows across 17 countries through September, October and November. The run of shows will kick off on September 24 at Oberhausen’s Rudolf Weber-ARENA and draw to a close on November 17 at the Accor Arena in Paris.

Over the course of the shows, the band will play new material along with tracks from across their back catalogue. They will be supported by Dry Cleaning, The Murder Capital and Black Country, New Road with each band joining them for various stretches of the tour.

"I never think about how a record is going to go live," Nick Cave said in a statement. "It never, ever occurs to me. The lyric-writing process is way too hard to take ideas like that into consideration. But, when I listen to Wild God now, I think we can really do something epic with these songs live. We’re really excited about that – the record just feels like it was made for the stage."

Originally announced earlier this month, Wild God takes in 10 tracks and will be released on August 30.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale at 10am local time on March 22. Find the full list of dates, and sign up for pre-sale access to tickets, here.
