Nick Cave adds Polish dates to 2022 European Tour

Warsaw, Poland – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have announced new dates for their upcoming 2022 European Tour, including two performances in Poland, in Gliwice on August 7 and in Gdańsk the following evening.

In addition to his two Polish dates, the Australian artist had earlier announced shows at the Metronome Prague festival, in the Czech Republic, and at the Pohoda festival in Trenčín, Slovakia, scheduled respectively for June 23 and July 7.

No dates in Hungary have been announced but one is expected since his Budapest concert, which was due to take place earlier this month, was cancelled because of the pandemic.

These are the first live dates the band have announced since they were forced to cancel their European and North American tours in 2020. More shows should be announced soon.

Alongside Nick Cave, whose last scheduled performance at Prague’ O2 arena was canceled due to Covid, American artist Beck has also confirmed his participation at next summer’s Metronome Prague festival.

“We promised all patient ticket holders a big surprise. I believe that, like us, they are very happy with this news,” said the festival’s producer, David Gaydečka. “Beck and Nick Cave’s participation in the same festival is a truly rare music event.”

“We don’t usually repeat big names at Pohoda,” also reacted Michal Kaščák, who organises Slovakia’s Pohoda festival, where Nick Cave played back in 2013. “But such an exceptional artist with such an exceptional concert calls for an exceptional approach. Everyone who was there knows why—it was clearly one of the most powerful moments in the history of Pohoda. I am proud and happy that we will be able to repeat it.”
