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?

    Fabulous shot . .. did you wash your hand after touching him, or did you keep it unwashed?!!

    What an awesome shot! I love Nick Cave, but have never seen him live. I’m a bit surprised, yet happy, that his music resonates with you and John as well!!

    I would love to see him.

    But I can’t handle the crowds at concerts anymore. Last one was Elton John and it annoyed me so much that people wouldn’t stay seated. I know, getting old!

    Not a fan of Nick Cave. I do go for one of your home-grown stars though, Paolo Nuttini, and saw him at the Isle of Wight Pop Festival a few years ago and was blown away.
