Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have announced details of a European tour, including five UK dates.

Nick and his touring band will play the British arena shows in late September, closing at The O2 on the 30th.

There’s then a vast European run through October into November, including France, Italy, Germany and more, closing in Asia in Tel Aviv.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released their 16th album Skeleton Tree, accompanied by the widely-acclaimed movie One More Time With Feeling.

The band was formed in 1983 in Australia, although Nick now lives in Brighton with his family.

Their music across the decades has been critically celebrated, shifting from early post-punk to alternative and garage rock.

Tickets for the tour dates go on sale at 9am (GMT) this Friday, with a small number of exceptions across the European dates.
