Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Reviews
Seen this show? Why not help your fellow San Francisco Theater visitors.
Truly a spiritual experience. NIck Cave and The Bad Seeds have been
around for decades, yet people still look at me weirdly when I mention
his name and try to describe his music. If you have to ask, then you
don't know and no one can explain it to you. It is an individually unique
experience, no one xperiences him the same. He may be too deep, too
tormented for American audiences that is why the rest of the world is
more familiar with him and his music. And yes, in some ways, he is a
The best concert I have ever been too, no contest. Nick Cave
and The Bad Seeds were powerful, raw, emotive and intimate
all at the same time.. Never experienced the feeling of
oneness I did last night with any other band. You're drawn
into NIck and his band's vibe from the start and they work
you over in the very best way. Do not miss them if you ever
have the chance. The sound in the Hall was incredible.
Everything pierced right through my body. Warren Ellis's
guitar and violin work was virtuosic and magnetic. The closing
encore song "Push the Sky Away" saw Nick pull 30+ audience
members up on stage for a beautiful group rendition of that
hopeful song. Unbelievably great.
HYPNOTIZING- ELECTRIFYING- POWERFUL-A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE
A packed house & NC&TBS rocked the house. The show began
w/the eerie penetrating bass from Skeleton Tree to set the mood,
the new songs hauntingly beautiful w/Nick captivating the
audience straight away. The Bad Seeds carnival of exotic
instrumental sounds perfectly accompany Nick's charisma &
crooning vocals. I truly wonder why more people in America don't
know about these guys who have been performing for decades.
A guy in the audience turned to me and asked, "Is Nick Cave really
God?" Nick's interaction w/the audience is profound, with hands
grasping at him, himself clutching the reaching fingers, pressing
himself into the crowd entrusting that they will not let him fall, and
they didn't. If anything the audience was a little too tame for my
liking buy Nick got them all going by summoning everyone
forward to crush in & worship.
I won't spoil w/any songs but he did some hard crowd-pleasers as
well as mixing in a couple tear jerking ballads.
Nick still rocks like a demi-god!
I just don't have the words to describe what it is to be in a Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
concert, they are just insanely amazing, energetic, nostalgic, tight, overwhelmingly cool,
Cave is a god a ghost a man a guru on stage!!! I've been to their concerts 4 times and
each one of them have been amazing, but this one was soo incredible that I really have
to rank it as one of the best ever!!!
Like a Priest, a pontificating pulsating Poet, an orator, a minister of music singing a
dirge from his soul, from his pulpit..the stage. Like a binding spell he weaved himself
through the crowd with his voice and his body. The screen that usually brings the
moments on the stage closer was dark, as if by invitation. As his shadow cast in a
stretch, in a splash on the right side of the stage wall. It was maybe the fourth song
when people as if in a flood went through the gate there in the standing room only
space and seemed to triple in numbers. Nick seemed to sew himself close with
those that pressed the stage. His movements were staccato and bass like, the
haunting minor chord of sounds from the Seeds accented his whine of psalms
echoed on throughout the Greek, as his shadow splashed with sass against the
stage wall and curtains, and the screens remained dark as intended. It was nearly
biblical the way he seemed to just walk into the crowd stepping lightly and firmly,
row by row, embracing the collective in connection. near the end of the show Nick
pulled some swooning engaged in the moment women onto the stage, the next
thing i know the stage is full of those who had just been in the pit, and then that
space seemed to automatically fill with the mesmerized. The Greek theater seemed
to be freaking out a bit, as he walked as if on water through the crowd walking on
the seats as patrons vacated them to beckon his stride. In between songs sang in his
encore, he told his congregation on the stage to sit down. Clearly a rebel move since
his time was running long and lovely. It was like going to Church, i feel indoctrinated
into something..so the next time Nick cave with all his nooks and cavernous crannies
comes to town with those awesome amazing bad seeds, i too plan to be pressed,
against the stage, in the pit... where there is standing room only, caught up in that
collective, with my arms in the air, in the gathering sway.
