UPDATE: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have canceled their North American tour dates for 2020 because of ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. The group said they plan to return to the U.S. and Canada in 2021 and will reveal details in the fall. Refunds will be made available to people who purchased tickets online or by phone within approximately 30 days, while those who purchased tickets at a box office should contact the venue directly.
The tour will kick off Wednesday, September 16th, at the Armory in Minneapolis and visit 17 more cities across the U.S. and Canada, ending Saturday, October 17th, at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. Weyes Blood will join Cave and his band for seven of the shows — in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, February 21st, at 10 a.m. local time. American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, February 19th, at 10 a.m. local time, through Thursday, February 20th, until 10 p.m. local time.
Cave released his latest album, the double LP Ghosteen, last October. This will be his second tour in two years, following an unconventional string of Q&A shows in North America this past fall, where Cave answered audience questions in addition to playing a 15-song set. Last month, the Victoria, Australia, native, alongside the rest of the Bad Seeds, pledged to donate $500,000 to the Australian bushfire relief fund.
Weyes Blood released Titanic Rising in April 2019. Following her initial tour in support of the album last year, the L.A.-based singer-songwriter will embark on more solo dates in 2020, performing at Coachella in April before kicking off a U.S. tour in Felton, California, on May 1st. The 19-date trek will run through August 14th.
