Dolphins, of course.


The setlists are more or less the same as the last years solo shows, so I know you'll like it.

Plus a little surprise gem - he plays Little Janey's Gone.

Oh, Bob! He plays it every fucking time. I'm sick of hearing it.

But he'll play it.

No reason not to like it. I think it's great......Especially the part where he's shouting and whispering at the same time..

Oh and thank you very much Alli. I hope you're gonna have a very nice evening. :wink:

ARRRGH I just wrote a really long review and my browser shut down - jeeesus - oh well here goes again. *SIGH*


Anyway - last night was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. NC and the band were in top form and top spirits. Very good moods all round. NC chatted happily with the audience and told us we could shout out requests (most of which happened to fit in nicely with the already chosen setlist :roll: ) . As ever, NC was beautiful and looked so damn cool in his pinstripes. Django you will be pleased to know he still has his Mexican karaoke singer moustache look going on (someone in the audience complimented him on his porn moustache - NC said it has done wonders for his marriage and we should all try growing one - I think I'll give that a miss myself!). Although it was billed at Nick Cave solo show and I expected it to be very low key it was, in fact, pretty energetic. It was chilled out from the point of view of Cave being almost happpy-go-lucky rather than the seriously intense (ok, grumpy) person I saw at Alexandra Palace last year. The venue (Cambridge Corn Exchange) was perfect - I believe it only seats about 1000 people and it was all seating last night. A totally different atmosphere to Ally Pally and, much to my surprise, not one Goth in sight (at Ally Pally the place was swarming with black leather, black hair and white faces). Cambridge really is a beautiful city - it has one of the most famous British Universities there and it's a very multi-cultural place. The Corn Exchange is an old venue and this all helped make the concert what it was. Great choice on the part of NC or his management. OH and I was 4 rows from the front. I almost passed out when I saw how close I was to the stage. Dunno how I do this - I seem to have the luck of the Irish when it comes to getting tickets. Not only were they sold out very quickly I got good seats again (remember I was only about 12 rows from the stage at Tom Waits in Amsterdam - completely against all odds of getting a ticket in the first place).

So, Nick was obviously in a very good mood (and chain smoking the whole night) - Warren Ellis was mental as always (crouching to the ground, hugging his violin, rocking back and forth like a baby during the build up to Stagger Lee), Martyn Casey was subdued and hidden behind the speaker stack for most of the evening and Sclavunos was, well, drumming (and telling NC to give up smoking).

OK setlist - it may be in the wrong order in parts and I might have missed something off but I'm afraid I'm one of those people who gets completely absorbed in the music and my memory isn't the best (smoking pot will do that for you).

West Country Girl (with her BIG FAT CAT)

Hiding All Away

Messiah Ward

The Ship Song (awww beautiful - but not as good as when he did it in London last year)

Nobody’s Baby Now

Cannibal Hymn

Abattoir Blues ("my heart it tumbled like the corn exchange" - yes he really did change the lyrics to this - corny would be right :shock: ).

Babe, You Turn Me On

The Weeping Song (no surprise here)

Wonderful Life

Rock of Gibraltar (He explained how this song was trashed by the music press for it's 'juvenile political message' - well, it's a clever love song to me regardless of any political message).

Henry Lee


God Is In The House (thought about you during this one Bob - was sending good vibes your way - did you get them??))

The Mercy Seat

The Lyre of Orpheus (oh mama - I don't like it when NC gets the crowd to sing along to this one),

Tupelo (no surprise here - someone requested this from the audience and made the pronunciation mistake of asking for Tuppelo (like UP) - NC held up his hadn, shot that person a very patronising look and said "TOOP - it's pronounced TOOPelo" much to the mirth of the rest of the audience).

Little Janey’s Gone (NC said the rest of the band think this one is shit - he thinks it is "really lovely" - said in a very plaintive voice).

Lucy

Right Now I'm A Roaming (he said they had not done this one live before).

Stagger Lee (awesome - no surprise).

*here insert comment from crowd: "Warren I love you" Warren: "thank you" with shy cheesy grin*

Jack The Ripper (I wish they'd finished with Stagger Lee instead of this).



He finished by shaking hands with most of the front row.

I walked the freezing streets of Cambridge for an hour trying to find my car but mostly being completely in love with Nick Cave so it was alright. :wink:


EDITED: obviously he didn't play Little Janey twice - my typo.

Thanks for the lovely review and the setlist, Alli! If you don't mind, I nicked the setlist, stripped it bare and posted it on the NC forum.

I'm very glad to hear they played Right Now I Am A Roaming. It is the first time they've played it live. Cool.

OH great - I send GOOD vibes and they make you feel melancholy???

:shock:


I hope you felt melancholy as in thoughtful and pensive rather than sad and gloomy. I'd feel terribly responsible for that you know.

:wink:
