    Nick Cave je bezesporu jednou z nejzásadnějších a kultovních postav světové hudební scény.
    V naší zemi má on i jeho Bad Seeds obrovskou fanouškovskou základnu a všechny jeho koncerty jsou velkou událostí, na kterou je těžké se dostat, neb jsou vždy vyprodané.

    Zatím poslední Caveovou návštěvou bylo jeho sólové vystoupení v Praze na sklonku září 2006.

    Nápad vyrazit na turné se zrodil s natáčením nové desky Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, která spatří světlo světa 3. března.
    Jak název napovídá, inspirací se tentokrát stalo biblické vyprávění o Lazarově vzkříšení. Nick Cave vysvětluje: „Vybavuje se mi, jak jsem prvně slyšel Lazarův příběh jako kluk v kostele a byl jsem jím zasažen, rozrušen a traumatizován. Všechny nás přece naplňuje posvátnou úctou největší z Kristových zázraků, Lazarovo zmrtvýchvstání. Mě ale také zajímalo, jak celou věc pociťoval Lazar. Jeho příběh jsem přenesl do New Yorku, aby byl současný.“

    "I když jsme do téhle desky dali maximální množství energie, zbylo jí hodně i na to, abychom vyjeli na turné. Chceme ji předvést živě, chceme se s ní podělit." Říká Nick Cave krátce před vydáním nové desky.

    Prahu s ní navštíví 24. května, kdy vystoupí v Areně HC Sparta Praha.

    Nick Cave má nadání natáčet desky, u kterých je předem jisté, že budou dobré. To samé platí i o koncertních vystoupeních.

    Nick Cave, který vloni oslavil kulaté padesáté narozeniny, ohlásil vydání již čtrnácté studiové desky se svou domovskou kapelou The Bad Seeds. Album "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!", které se nahrávalo v červnu a červenci loňského roku v richmondských Ark Studios, bude prvním počinem Nicka Cavea po realizaci vedlejšího projektu Grinderman a druhým albem bez Blixy Bargelda. Ten z The Bad Seeds odešel, aby se mohl plně věnovat svým Einstürzende Neubauten. Novinka vyjde v produkci The Bad Seeds a Nicka Launaye, který pracoval i na předchozím albu "Abattoir Blues / Lyre Of Orpheus". Kromě rockové hudby má Nick Cave mnoho dalších aktivit. Skládá hudbu k filmům i divadelním představením, je autorem románu "A uzřela uslice anděla" a zkusil si i pár epizodních rolí v několika filmech. Posledním mimorockovým počinem, na kterém pracoval, byl soundtrack k filmu "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford", který vyšel na sklonku roku 2007.

    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - History
    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds was originally formed in 1984 by two former members of the Australian band The Birthday Party: Nick Cave (vocals, songwriter, keyboards, harmonica) and multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey. They were joined by Einstürzende Neubauten member Blixa Bargeld (guitar), Hugo Race (guitar), and former Magazine member Barry Adamson (bass, piano). Cave's former girlfriend Anita Lane was also a creative influence and occasional lyricist. This line-up recorded their debut album, From Her to Eternity, released in 1984. During their initial Australian tour, Birthday Party bass guitarist Tracy Pew also performed with the band.

    The name of the new project indicated the shift in Cave's role from band member, as in The Birthday Party, to band leader, and coincided with his shift in songwriting style from expressionism to detailed lyrical narrative. The group has been through many personnel changes, with Cave and Harvey remaining the constants.

    Cave separated from Lane in the mid-1980s and began a relationship with Elisabeth Recker. While in Berlin, he released four albums with the Bad Seeds: The Firstborn Is Dead; Kicking Against the Pricks; Your Funeral, My Trial; and Tender Prey. Kicking Against the Pricks was the first album to feature the drumming of Swiss Thomas Wydler, who is the longest serving member in the band beside Cave and Mick Harvey.

    In 1996, Cave and the Bad Seeds released Murder Ballads. It includes "Henry Lee", a duet with British rock singer PJ Harvey (with whom he had a brief relationship), and "Where the Wild Roses Grow", a duet with Australian pop idol Kylie Minogue. The latter was a mainstream hit in the UK and in Australia, winning three ARIA Awards including "Song of the Year".

    Their next album, The Boatman's Call (1997), is marked by a radical shift away from archetypal and violent narratives to biographical and confessional songs about his relationships with Carneiro and Harvey. It was also his first full album to be centered around his own piano playing.

    Cave then took a short break to rehabilitate from his 20 years of heroin and alcohol abuse, during which time he married. The band resurfaced with No More Shall We Part in 2001.

    After the release of the 2003 album Nocturama, which failed to excite reviewers, Bargeld announced he was leaving the Bad Seeds to devote more time to Einstürzende Neubauten, leaving Mick Harvey as the only original member still in the band, other than Cave himself. The next year Cave released his first double record - the acclaimed two-disc set Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus.

    In 2005, Cave and the Seeds released B-Sides & Rarities, a three-disc, 56-track collection of B-sides, rarities and tracks that had appeared on film soundtracks.

    Cave told Billboard that apart from his album with his other venture Grinderman (nicknamed Mini-Seeds, because it consists of Seeds members - see below), he has recorded the band 14th studio album between June and August 2007. "It’s quite strange to have the two bands going at once because my head is kind of very much in the new Bad Seeds record,” Cave says, “but I finished that and now I’m going to make a new Grinderman one, I think. I just like making records."

    In October 2007 Cave was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. During his acceptance speech he cheekily took it upon himself to also induct the Australian members of the Bad Seeds (excluding Hugo Race), plus the members of The Birthday Party (excluding Phill Calvert).

    In March 2008, the band are scheduled to release their 14th studio album, titled Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, inspired by the Biblical story of the resurrection of Lazarus of Bethany by Jesus Christ.
