A spellbinding & breathtaking evening, with a couple of surprising jewels, in a night full of riches.
Just got back from seeing Nick Cave and Warren Ellis in Vancouver. What a joy and a privilege! I’ve missed live music so much - what an incredible night!
This is a video from that night in Vancouver, of their cover of Cosmic Dancer, which was a fantastic surprise for me. That video was taken by someone standing just in front of me!
We got two encores. The first one was Hollywood, Henry Lee & Girl in Amber - all great. Then they cleared the stage and lots of people left. Then we got a second encore!
This is Into My Arms, which he did with just the amazing backing singers, as a second encore, after half the audience had left thinking it was done - one of several completely spellbinding moments:
Things I learned from this gig:
- This really re-enforced my earlier lessons from the Sigur Rós gig - be at the front & only go see people you would happily sit down and listen to for a solid hour at home.
- If you’re enjoying it, stay until the very end; if you can, make sure you don’t have to be somewhere afterwards.
March 16th, at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
