In July 2020 during the UK's coronavirus lockdown Nick Cave performed a novel concert solo, at a piano at the iconic Alexandra Palace in London which was later live streamed to fans in a one-of-a-kind event. This is the recording of that concert featuring a set list of recent compositions and greatest hits.

"Cave’s performance in an empty hall, with just piano and voice, seems to try and ward off the terrifying silence of the Covid-19 age”
Evening Standard ****
"Gravitas echoes beautifully in the void of an empty Alexandra Palace"

"‘Idiot Prayer’ performance is stately and beautiful”
The Arts Desk ****
"The dramatic minimalism of this setting is perfect for an expressive face, and such powerfully emotional songs”
