"No More Shall We Part" tour, 1st leg - Europe - April/May 2001

Comments: The band is still: Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld, Thomas Wydler, Martyn P. Casey, 
Jim Sclavunos and Warren Ellis. Live debut of "Curse Of Millhaven", and 9 songs and one B-side of the new album, 
including live debuts of "The Sorrowful Wife", "Hallelujah", and "Oh, My Lord", and the first Bad Seeds 
performance of "Love Letter". From the new album "No More Shall We Part", the song "Sweetheart Come",
was never played live. "Darker With The Day" had to wait until 2005.  "The Sorrowful Wife" was dropped 
after 3 shows,  but was played once more on special request by Damien Gousset in Leuven.
The last Bad Seeds performance of "Papa Won't Leave You, Henry" was in 1995. At the second Paris show, 
"God Is In The House" was started but aborted after 10 seconds - so it's not listed below. 
The Lyon setlist comes from a probably incomplete broadcast. "Love Is In The Air" is the 
John Paul Young (1979) cover.

"Nocturama" tour, 1st leg - Europe - April/May/June 2003

Comments: Blixa Bargeld has left the Bad Seeds before the tour started and is replaced by James Johnston. 
The Nocturama tours were all relatively short. Live debut of "Watching Alice", and surprising rare returns 
of "The Singer", "The Loom Of The Land", "Gates To The Garden" and "Sad Waters", and 6 songs of the new album. 
"Dead Man In My Bed", "There Is A Town" and "She Passed By My Window" were never done live. 
"Right Out Of Your Hand" was later played in solo shows, and in 2008 by the Bad Seeds. 
After the 2003 tours, Nocturama songs were largely ignored in future Bad Seeds' shows. "West Country Girl" is 
back for this year's Bad Seeds shows. Last Bad Seeds performance of "Christina the Astonishing" was in 1996. 
"Wild World" as a Birthday Party song to enter the "Bad Seeds" set is a real rarity! 
"There Is A Kingdom" is the only Bad Seeds live performance I know of. Chris Bailey (from the support band) 
helps sing "Bring It On" on almost all shows and also joins for "Ths Ship Song" in Amsterdam.
Footage of the June 7 London show was later released in The Abatoir Blues Tour package. 
The 23/05/03 Tate Britain concert was originally scheduled as a solo concert for March 13, 2003;
but it appeared to be the Cave/Ellis/Casey/Sclavunos and Mick Harvey. 
The Tate setlist is indeed like a mix of a Bad Seeds and a "solo quartet" setlist of this era. 

23/05/03 - London, Tate Britain, Tate & Egg Live (announced as solo concert)
30/05/03 - Berlin, Glashaus, secret, free gig for invited audience (330 people)

"Abattoir Blues" tour, 1st leg - Europe - November/December 2004

Comments: European "Abattoir Blues/The Lyre Of Orpheus" tour. The Bad Seeds again with James Johnston, 
and with four members of the London Community Gospel Choir: Wendi Rose, Ase Bergstrom, Eleanor Palmer
and Geo Onaymake. For the first time the setlist was divided in two parts with the first part 
entirely dedicated to the new album. From the new album, only two songs were never played live: 
"Fable Of The Brown Ape" and "Spell". "Cannibal's Hymn" was only tried on the first date and was thereafter abandoned.
The same holds for "Lay Me Low", a one-off live debut. The second Brixton show was filmed for 
"The Abattoir Blues Tour". Paris 15/11 was interrupted after the opening song for half an hour
due to technical problems.

"Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" tour, 1st leg - Europe - April/June 2008

Comments: A new tour after almost 3 years of Bad Seeds' absense and Nick working with the quartet and Grinderman. 
From the "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" album, all songs were played live, but "Albert Goes West" only once at the first date.
This tour saw live debuts of the 1986 song "Hard On For Love" and of the 1996 song "Lovely Creature", 
and "Wanted Man" was back for the first time since 1994. In Dublin, Shane McGowan joined Nick Cave on stage for "Lucy".
Note also the rare appearance of "Far From Me". "The Mercy Seat" was only played on the second half of the tour, 
after the BBC session. In Athens, "Tupelo" lasted 12 minutes and Ed Kuepper joined on stage for "Stagger Lee".

Europe - Summer 2009

Comments: European summer festival tour. Ed Kuepper is the successor of Mick Harvey, and the band now 
has none of the original members of 1984. James Johnston has also left, so The Bad Seeds on this tour are: 
Thomas Wydler, Conway Savage, Martyn P. Casey, Jim Sclavunos, Warren Ellis and Ed Kuepper.
"Lucy" gets a fixed spot in the standard setlist for the very first time. The 19/6 Southside Festival concert 
suffered from a 10 minute break-down of the PA system after "The Ship Song". 
Shane MacGowan joined for "Lucy" on July 11.
