... As for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, this was another dream (a twenty year long dream!) come true. I have seen Nick Cave live before but either as the Dirty Three or singing the songs of Leonard Cohen – never with The Bad Seeds. What a show it was at Beauregard! It may have been a one hour set only but one hour of absolute bliss. Surrounded by like-minded fans, we watched in awe, mesmerised by the raw, majestic and charismatic performance of Nick Cave. We were only metres away. The persona was reaching every single one of us at the front row, and we were fortunate to be the ones he chose to hold his hand when he was perched on the barrier. He put so much trust in us, we were there for him, holding his legs and hand to make sure he would not fall: a true communion! He took my hand and sang to me during ‘Higgs Boson Blues’ for a few seconds; ephemeral seconds that will remain forever in my memory.
