More Info

In July 2020 during the UK's coronavirus lockdown Nick Cave performed a novel concert solo, at a piano at the iconic Alexandra Palace in London which was later live streamed to fans in a one-of-a-kind event. This is the recording of that concert featuring a set list of recent compositions and greatest hits.

The Telegraph ****

"Cave's solo live stream could be the most the beautiful and sombre performance he's ever given"

The Guardian ****

"Cave’s performance in an empty hall, with just piano and voice, seems to try and ward off the terrifying silence of the Covid-19 age”

Evening Standard ****

"Gravitas echoes beautifully in the void of an empty Alexandra Palace"

The Independent ****

"‘Idiot Prayer’ performance is stately and beautiful”

The Arts Desk ****

"The dramatic minimalism of this setting is perfect for an expressive face, and such powerfully emotional songs”
