Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds are the very first name announced for Rock Werchter 2018!
The sold out show of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, last month at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp, was from a heartbreaking beauty. On Sunday 8 July, they are one of Rock Werchter’s top acts. Belgium’s greatest summer music festival takes place from Thursday 5 July to Sunday 8 July 2018 at the Festivalpark in Werchter. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday 25 November at 10 AM from ticketmaster.be.
‘Mind-blowing’, ‘A triumphant gig’, ‘Perfection’…. Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ current tour is one of the most critically acclaimed. The Bad Seeds take live performance to another level and over thirty years have established themselves as perhaps the most dynamic and transcendent live band of their generation. ‘Nick Cave is most likely one of the best performers of our time’, the Dutch music magazine Oor recently wrote. With The Bad Seeds he enchants his fans. ‘It’s hard to think of another band that can shift so seamlessly from elegance and control to white-knuckled bedlam’, The Guardian writes after the show in Manchester. The magic translates into sales figures. The remarkable ‘Skeleton Tree’ (2016) is their best-selling album in Belgian charts. Rock Werchter and Nick Cave go way back. He first performed at the festival in 1989 and has returned many times. A warm welcome back.
