Long line at Passa Porta for Nick Cave autograph session

Long line at Passa Porta for Nick Cave autograph session

There was a long line at the Bassa Porta bookstore in Dansaertstraat on Saturday evening. All fans of Nick Cave, who was a guest at his autobiography book signing session.

In total, there were 150 venues for Nick Cave and journalist Seán O’Hagan’s signing session at Passa Porta for their book Faith, Hope and Carnage. Within 11 seconds, all tickets were sold out. A total of 6,254 people tried to get a seat via the ticket stand, which led to many disappointing reactions on Facebook.

Tomorrow, the singer will be discussing his book in BOZZAR, which deals with universal topics such as faith, art, music and love.

Cave has become more accessible in recent years. Watch the signing session in Brussels. But he also answers questions from fans on The Red Hand Files online platform, which can be very personal and emotional. A few years ago, he also answered questions live during his Conversations with Nick Cave tour. “And that while he hated his fans for a long time,” says Kurt Overberg, artistic director of Ancienne Belgique, who also interviewed the rock god in the past. “After his son Arthur died, in 2015, that changed. He started to be vulnerable, sad in public. His relationship with fans became very close and intense.” Also in Bozar, the audience can ask some questions after the conversation with O’Hagan.
