Nick Cave joins the British indie duo Oh Wonder and the American singer and composer Beck in the gradually announced program. A limited series of weekly tickets is now on sale at www.metronome.cz, she told Zuzana Kantorov on behalf of the organizer.
Nick Cave’s fame is worldwide, but in the Czech Republic, this original creator has an extraordinary audience base and has been visible on Czech soil regularly since the arrest of the ninety-year-olds. This series began with sold-out concerts in 1992 and 1993 in the Lucern cracks, which to this day are still remembered by the strong natives of the big nineteenth party. After all, Cave did not remain immune to the genius of the free city of Prague at the time: on his album Let Love In from 1994, we find the dog Thirsty Dog, directly inspired by the then cult Prague pub.
We promised music fans that Metronome Prague 2022 will be. We promised you a great surprise of the patient ticket driver. I know that, like us, they are very happy with this news. Beck and Nick Cave’s participation in the program of one event is a truly rare musical event. We will now go on sale, but the capacity has limited the number of discounted ticket prices for the whole event, comments one of the producers David Gaydeka on the confirmation of Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds at the 5th stage of the Metronome Prague festival.
For several years, Nick Cave was an icon especially for fans of alternative music, only slowly making his way to mainstream audiences. He was also helped by other disciplines, in which he is well recognized, and it is literature or film, in which he works as a screenwriter, occasional actor and a very active composer of stage music.
For the last decade or so, Nick Cave has been one of the big globalization stars playing in major times at the world’s biggest festivals. This path is perfectly expressed by the shift of his crackdown over a period of thirty years: from the sweaty service of Lucerna, the sold-out O2 arna first to the open air environment of Metronome Prague 2022 in Vstaviti.

The Metronome Prague Festival is the first major music and art festival held in Prague. Its 5th row was originally filled for 2020, due to the covid-19 pandemic, it was moved to 2021 and for this reason it was currently moved to 2022.
