Nick Cave @ Hammerstein Ballroom - 7/27/14
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

After Nick Cave & and the Bad Seeds' current tour with Nicole Atkins hit Brooklyn's Prospect Park on Saturday (7/26), it hit another NYC venue, Hammerstein Ballroom, the next night (7/27) for another larger-than-life performance from the legendary frontman. The setlist was similar but not identical this time around, including plenty of 2013's Push the Sky Away, as well Bad Seeds classics "Red Right Hand," "The Mercy Seat," "Stagger Lee" and others. Pictures from Hammerstein are in this post.

If you missed them, check out Prospect Park pictures and review, as well as pics from the Bad Seeds' stops in Kansas City, Austin and Philly. More from Hammerstein, with the setlist, below...

Do you really need to publish a picture of the mailing list? Not cool!

Why are CDs $20 at the show? Without brick and mortar overhead shouldn't they be cheaper than Amazon?

942 maybe because they're from australia and they have to pay taxes with us immigration? better to buy it through artists than amazon anyway!

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 9:46 AM

But wouldn't the product be the US releases anyway 9:46? Meaning that there would be no import taxes on US-manufactured product - so their taxes would be on personal income from the sales, in which case you might also justify the ticket prices also reflecting these taxes? I think that most sane businesspeople would call that "the cost of doing business", at least for now with the onerous tax code that we in the US inflict on both citizens and visiting workers.

Love that the guy complaining about $20 CDs missed that many of them are actually $30.

Seriously? You posted a pic of the mailing list??? What an absolute moron.

"Cave left Australia in 1980 and lives with his family in Brighton, England, UK."

Thank you Wikipedia

Hey douche canoe aka 9:54,

I am not complaining about the cost of the CDs, I am questioning why they are more than Amazon.

But you never were that smart, I don't care who you think you are.

Try reading the actual words next time you want to pick a fight with an anonymous poster on the internet. Jerk.

Most venues take a percentage of all merch sales, so the artist marks up the cost of their merch accordingly.

LPs were selling for $40, according to photos from the Brooklyn show.

Posted by Regs | July 29, 2014 10:17 AM

Actually it's pretty common that venues don't take a percentage of merch sales from artists that are paying to play the venue (eg all of them). I'm not sure how many venues 1014 has played.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 10:22 AM

As 10:14 said, it's because most venues take a cut of the merch sales, some of them a lot more significantly than others, so artists are forced to mark up.

$40 for a vinyl LP is steep... What is this? Discogs???

"Hey douche canoe aka 9:54"

Douche canoe? Wow, watch out for this guy!


How 'bout saying it in a non-dorky way, like douchenozzle.

1022 you cray

I've been to plenty of shows where the CDs are 10-15. So there is no excuse. I don't know who is still buying CDs anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 10:57 AM

^ yeah, buying CD's is weird.

Cassettes is the more appropriate choice.

I suggest removing the photo of the mailing list.

I prefer 8-track.

I suggest replacing that photo with an image of a Robust Hummus Platter.

how is Nicole Atkins live?

Nick cave > 99% of the idiecrap out there today

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 11:58 AM

@10:57 Some independent venues may not take a cut of merch sales, but union rooms or places run by corporations like LiveNation or AEG will definitely be taking 20-25% of the merch money. Just the way it is.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 12:16 PM

LOL @ this one know it all prick who can't get off his myriad thoughts of how right he is about merch sales, venue artist charge rates and the use of CDs. It really is funny, in a fat kid picking his nose kind of way. Way to go, dufus! You win!

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2014 12:39 PM

1158, so 1% of the "idiecrap out there today" is better than Nick Cave?

Note to BV photographers. You don't need to post every pic, i.e. email lists and three shots of the merch. I know it's your "art" and all.
