    Following a short debut run on the East Coast early last year, Nick Cave brings his evenings of talk and music to Walt Disney Concert Hall on Tuesday, October 15, 2019. The show is presented by the LA Phil and produced in partnership with Goldenvoice.

    Having recently taken this special show to sold out venues in Australia and New Zealand, and with a sold-out tour of the UK and Europe to come this spring, Cave will return to North America in the fall. During this series of music and open discussion events, he will take questions directly from the audience on all manner of subjects and perform some of his most beloved songs on piano.

    Described by Cave as “an exercise in connectivity,” no subject is sacred and audiences are encouraged to be bold and challenging, confrontational and unafraid.

    The relationship between Cave and his audience has always been open and intense, but deepened during his recent shows with the Bad Seeds, inspiring these unconventional and unique evenings of unfiltered, unscripted and unmoderated Q&A.

    “I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable - in the recent live shows we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up,” says Nick Cave.

    “Between stark, gorgeous performances of key songs like ‘Skeleton Tree,’ ‘The Mercy Seat’ and ‘God Is In The House,’ Cave was wry, genial and funny as hell.” - Billboard

    “This is a striking turnaround when you’re used to seeing icons in all their bombast and mythos. Here, you are getting them unmediated by journalists, you are getting them in an unfiltered and unedited form, you are getting them in a human state without the guise of stardom in full-force.” - Stereogum

    “Watching a legend in command of an audience, never quite knowing what would happen next, was a genuine thrill.” - Sydney Morning Herald

    “...tonight’s not about being right. It’s about being present, knowable, vulnerable and real. And funny. Always that.” - The Guardian

    “A complete dismantling of the barriers put in place thanks to his often mysterious image…Nick Cave’s intimate Conversations show is bold, enlightening and completely gripping.” - ABC
