Described by Cave as “an exercise in connectivity”, the shows had a sell-out run in Australia & New Zealand and explore the intense relationship between Cave and his audience through unfiltered, unscripted and unmoderated Q&As.

“I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable," says Cave, "and in the recent live shows we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up.”
