NICK Cave is heading for St George's Hall.

In their first ever tour as a duo, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis will perform at the Bradford venue on Wednesday, September 15 as part of a UK tour showcasing their acclaimed album Carnage.

While they have composed and recorded soundtracks together, and Ellis is a long-term member of The Bad Seeds, Carnage is the first entire album of songs the pair have released. Cave and Ellis’ creative chemistry is rooted in their history of music making, both as collaborators and individual artists. They first crossed paths in 1993, when Ellis played violin on songs for the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album Let Love In, before going on to join the band as a fulltime member. The pair have also recorded in Grinderman, formed in 2006, and worked together on 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.
