Showman Nick Cave brings All Points East to a jubilant end

Nick Cave closed the All Points East festival this summer with a winning performance for 40,000 fans at London’s Victoria Park.

Dressed in a smart black suit and white shirt, he led his band The Bad Seeds through a set of 20 high-energy songs during their four-decade career.

Opening with the song Get Ready For Love, Cave told the crowd: “Thanks London, we love you too.”

The second song There She Goes, My Beautiful Love inspired a pop song, as did The Ship Song and The Mercy Seat, while Red Right Hand, now famous as Peaky Blinders’ theme song, received a standing ovation.

When not at his grand piano, Cave spent most of his time off the main stage singing to the fans in the front, shaking hands and occasionally jumping in with them to sing.

He seemed so happy, at one point, he handed out commissions, criticized a man’s choice of t-shirts and described his own Jubilee Street as a “horrible song”.

And he dedicated O Children to his neighbor Esme, saying it was “a wonderful privilege to be her neighbor” – last year Cave wrote a children’s book called The Little Thing for a child who was then three years old.

Cave tells of a man who wrote to his management company complaining that he and band member Warren Ellis had spit on stage because it was unhygienic, and added: “You should see Warren and I will be like when we step on the stage.”

And in Higgs Bosun Blues, he leads the crowd with a chorus of “Hannah Montana” before chopping “Miley Cyrus hovering in a swimming pool at Lake Taluca”.

After his regular Into Your Arms recital with piano and Vortex, the band returned to playing Ghosteen Speaks, before Cave said they had time to play one more, giving the crowd a rare performance. there’s The Weeping Song.

“Thank you London, thank you for coming along, you were really beautiful,” Cave said, before leaving the stage after two and a half hours.

Other artists who will play on the final day of the festival include Michael Kiwanuka, The Smile, the new band formed by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, Kae Tempest and Sleaford Mods, whose singer Jason Williamson also joined Aldous Harding on stage.

The six-day festival begins August 19 with Gorillaz, while other titles are Tame Impala, The National, Disclosure, and Chemical Brothers and Kraftwerk. Showman Nick Cave brings All Points East to a jubilant end
