Nick Cave

Mum was disapointed on Sunday night to feel a cold had invaded her body again, and spent Monday in bed reading and watching shows and had a big sleep in today.  Her main stress was that she had brought a ticket to see Nick Cave and she was so looking forward to it.  She had to miss Suzanne Vega last year as she was so ill, so this was her next concert and she couldn't believe that she was sick again.  So she loaded up on lots of vitamins and drinks and could feel her body fighting it, so by 6pm she thought she might be ok, so into town she went.

It was not a straight show, it was called An Audience with Nick Cave, that was a show of songs but the audience could ask questions throughout.  Mum thought that would be a bit annoying, but actually it showed how smart, thoughtful and witty the singer was.  His singing - oh mum was amazed by his talent.  It was just him and his piano and so many beautiful songs.  Oh and she only coughed a few times, and hopefully didn't ruin anyones good time.

She felt brave too, as this is the first concert she has ever been to by herself and it was ok.  She booked a seat at the end of row so she only had to sit next to one stranger, and didn't get there too early so she didn't have to stand waiting by herself.  Well done Mum.


  1. So pleased it ALL turned out o.k. for Mum Poppy!x
    And that she enjoyed the show..We've had loads of
    shows over called..An Audience With..all the famous
    singers/comedians/stars have been on, and they interact
    with a famous audience to..great fun and laughs all round.
    Perhaps you've had it over there to..! :).

    I've just looked it up..over here they've done 53 shows,
    starting with the first..Jasper Carrot and finishing with
    Les Dawson at number 53...in 2013!
    And, it had been going for some 30yrs..!

    1. Just reading up on Nick Cave..as l did'nt know much about him..
      Very interesting...I read three of his famous quotes...
      "People think I'm a miserable sod but it's only because I get asked such bloody miserable questions"

      "I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment,
      the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange".

      "I've always had an obligation to creation, above all".

      Also mentions his preformance at the Michael Fowler Centre!

  2. Paws up for your human, Poppy! I'm glad she went - it sounds like a great show, and a good break from all the sick stuff.

  3. I’m glad you were able to go
    Hopefully your over the worst and are now feeling much better

  4. Glad your mum did OK at the show.

  5. I don't know Cave, but I'm glad your mum was able to see him. What a bother it would have been to miss two concerts because of illness. A good time, eh?
