Nick Cave and Warren Ellis

Cave and Ellis’ creative chemistry is rooted in their long history of music making, both as collaborators and as individual artists.

They first crossed paths in 1993, when Ellis played violin on several songs for the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album, Let Love In, before going on to join the band as a full-time member.

The two have also recorded in Grinderman, formed in 2006, and have worked together on numerous film and TV scores.

Cave and Ellis will be joined on stage by musician Johnny Hostile and backing singers Wendi Rose, T Jae Cole and Janet Ramus.

In addition to the Sheffield date, Cave and Ellis will also be performing in Bradford, Nottingham and Manchester.
