New stretch target


Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are holding a draw of over 100 prizes to raise funds to help support their tour crew, whose livelihoods have been badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Among the prizes to win are The Bad Seeds’ own signed instruments, a limited edition art print of Nick Cave, show tickets and gift vouchers.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds had planned to tour the globe in 2020, but with bags and flight cases almost packed, and just weeks to go before the start of rehearsals, the virus struck. 

With a rescheduled Plan B tour, and then a Plan C, also derailed by Covid and the uncertainty surrounding it, The Bad Seeds will now not be back on the road for the time being. 

This means work for our crew has vanished. As freelancers there has been little or no support on offer to them from the authorities, and available work elsewhere is currently almost non-existent.

We have supported our direct crew as best as we can, but we thought we’d also have a bit of fun with a prize draw to help raise funds for them.

Many of our immediate crew - those who work closely with us - have been with us for years, decades even; without their love and knowledge of the band, their dedication and expertise, their willingness to spend long periods away from home, work long hours and assume unconventional sleeping arrangements, our shows simply would not happen.

Join us in showing appreciation for this awesome bunch - we look forward to the day when they can get us and the show back on the road.

ABOUT NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS CREW FUNDRAISER

Launched by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and their management with the aim of raising and distributing funds to their freelance crew members.

The pandemic has left many live production crew with little or no income to cover even basic living costs. The live entertainment industry has been shattered by the pandemic and work for people in this area is now sparse at best. Most touring crew - and many others working in the arts & entertainment sector - work on a freelance basis and so have been unable to access government funding or support schemes.

Nick & Warren recently donated a signed guitar to the great ‘I Love Live Stagehand Fund’; this one’s for our own team!

WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING

After deduction of directly related costs - such as sending items to winners, small marketing expenditure etc. - the funds will be distributed to the direct crew of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds who were due to work on the band’s 2020 EU/UK tour. ‘Direct crew’ means freelance crew members who the band engage directly to work with them. It does not include those crew who work with the band via third party companies or entities. 

The funds will help support the basic living costs of the freelance crew members and their families during this lengthy period of work instability.
