During the quarantine, in addition to the traditional online-the appartment, it’s been quite a lot of unusual events. The musicians played on rooftops, in front of the pots of flowers on display, instead of the audience, sang to the Internet with a blindfold, staged marathons. Known hoaxer and gloomy introvert nick cave is difficult to imagine before the public in Slippers and pajamas. Even when you can’t speak before an audience, he needs to create a special atmosphere. So he decided to sing in front of a large empty room.

His performance in the void was recorded on the stage of the Alexandra Palace in London a month ago, but was kept secret. Mr. cave, accompanying himself on piano, sang their hits from different years, as well as songs from their latest album “Ghosteen” and songs from the repertoire of the Bad Seeds and Grinderman. Directing and editing the concert film was doing Robbie Ryan and Nick Emerson.

the Show is called “Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace” (“Praying idiot: Nick cave alone at Alexandra Palace). Online screenings will be held on July 23 three times: at 22: 00 on the East coast for viewers in North and South America, 20.00 GMT for Europe and 20: 00 Australian time to Asia and Australia. The concert will be go in real time without the ability to rewind, pause or watch it at a later date.
