Irish-French powerhouse singer Camille O’Sullivan reinvents the songs of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds through her unmistakable wit, style and theatricality.


A favourite of Yoko Ono, Jools Holland and Auckland concertgoers, Camille O'Sullivan has seduced audiences around the world with her sultry, dangerously fragile performances of statement-making music by Radiohead, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie and more. This luminous new show is devoted entirely to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – both the iconic songs and the band’s intense, macabre sense of rock poetry – as reinvented by O’Sullivan.

Capturing the essence of an artist of many guises – at once violent, beautiful, logical, crazy, devout, troubled and religious – Camille O'Sullivan 'Cave'  is a passionate, unique interpretation of brilliant music. Famous for her rendition of ‘The Ship Song’, there’s no better performer to take us on the journey than Camille. A scintillating concert fit for the epic Civic stage.

"O’Sullivan ranges from screaming lunatic, to abandoned lover, to angel, to the captivating devil himself, her voice moving between darkness and light, fire and smoke with ease. Nothing is held back. She burns just as bright as Cave, if not brighter."  – TheatreScenes

"Camille brought her own homage and intimacy to the songs tonight, a blend of the theatrical and pleasingly often the whisper-quiet delivery, crystal-clear, where you could hear every breath between those precious lyrics" – Radio 13
