The show was fucking amazing. Absolutely amazing. Holding back tears the entire time, I'd been waiting for 4 years to see Nick Cave live again, and this time it was even more breathtaking.

He played some wonderful songs, and even one song off his really old album, Your Funeral My Trial... I was and am still just blown away.. I'm in a state of shock right now. Very much worth the $38 for the ticket; hell, I would have payed so much more.

He remembered me. He dedicated a song once again to me on stage.
It's a long story of how I met him last time (some of you may recall me posting it a long time ago) and I don't feel like typing it all out again..
But holy shit, 4 years later, he remembers the girl who met him in the alley behind 5th Ave Theatre bawling her eyes out over her idol; at that time he'd been my idol for 5 years, and now it's close to 10.
My god.
Anyway, his setlist...
a lot of songs off his new album, wonderfully done.
THREE encores... I wanted more... He played St. Huck on the second encore; I was so shocked. He played Papa Won't Leave You Henry. He played Stagger Lee... and all sound so much better live (then again, most songs do!).. it was great to see him thrashing about on stage, really into the music, like the audience.

After the third song, everyone left their seats and rushed the stage. .....

I don't know what else to say.. except that it was the best concert ever since his show here in 1998.
