NICK Cave and the Bad Seeds have announced a Manchester show as part of their European tour next year.

The legendary Australian singer songwriter and his band, who released their acclaimed 17th studio album Ghosteen earlier this month, play Manchester Arena on May 6, 2020.

Cave’s latest album has been described as a “search for solace” as the singer comes to terms with the death of his son.

Arthur Cave was 15 when he fell from a cliff in Brighton in 2015 after taking LSD. He later died from his injuries. Ghosteen, is the first to be written since the tragedy and has been praised by reviewers.

The New York Times described Ghosteen as a “search for solace” while Rolling Stone said it was a “stunning reaction to losing his son”.
