January Light: Nick Cave

Spotlight on Nick Cave – I have lost count of the number of his concerts I have attended, this being the last one, at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro in September 2017. It’s not great quality, taken on a phone in the dark, but I love it. It’s the best photo either of us has ever managed at a gig (so it’s probably John’s) and it really captures the moment. We both got to touch him as he crowd-surfed that evening, and I was almost trampled underfoot at the end when a few fans were allowed onto the stage. Happy days! He’s coming to Glasgow again in May, and guess who has tickets?

    I love the photo too! I don’t know that musician, but his pose just speaks volumes.

    I never heard of him and it shows how someone can be famous everywhere but in North America. Watch me be wrong because, I just don’t know music enough

    The verdict is now IN! I definitely live under a rock. Before your post, I had never heard of a ‘smartphone concert’….or of Nick Cave. I’m seriously hopeless.
    Great concert shot!!

      He he – I’m assuming the smart phone concert was just Bob’s pal playing a load of videos to him, but I could be wrong! Not having heard of Nick Cave though, that’s a serious matter …

    I was at that gig too, anabel! one of my top five ever. First time i’d seen him, always admired from afar. Blown away. What a man. Thanks for the memories

    Oh, dear- how out of touch am I? Not even sure what a smart phone concert is 😦 😦 I did, however, scoot off to listen to some Nick Cave and read his recent answers on the Red Hand Files. I have a feeling I’m missing out. 🙂

    Great photo. Doesn’t look like he’s touring down this way in the near future so I’ll have to settle for a version of the smart-phone concert too.

    That’s a weird coincidence as I’m just back from a bothy where Nick Cave was the star attraction of the night via a smart phone concert. My mate is also a big fan so I got an album by album musical tour….. Whether I wanted one or not, being a captive audience :o).


I'd love to hear what you think!
