Nick Cave & Warren Ellis

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have announced an Autumn 2021 tour of the UK.

In their first ever tour as a duo, Cave and Ellis will play 20 shows across the UK this September and October, following the release of their acclaimed album ‘Carnage’, which you can purchase/listen to HERE. They will be performing live at the Brighton Dome on 10th October 2021.

While they have composed and recorded soundtracks together, and Ellis is a long-term member of The Bad Seeds, ‘Carnage’ is the first entire album of songs the pair have released.

Cave and Ellis’ creative chemistry is rooted in their long history of music making, both as collaborators and as individual artists. They first crossed paths in 1993, when Ellis played violin on several songs for the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album, ‘Let Love In’, before going on to join the band as a full-time member. The two have also recorded in Grinderman, formed in 2006, and have worked together on numerous film and TV scores.

Cave and Ellis will be joined on stage by musician Johnny Hostile and backing singers Wendi Rose, T Jae Cole and Janet Ramus.
