Nick Cave is heading out on a short speaking tour titled "So What Do You Want to Know?" during which he will spend his stage time just answering questions from the audience.

I’ve sort of had this idea of doing some kind of interview but I’m not sure that a regular press interview is the appropriate place to talk about certain things.
