It's been quite a while since Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds last played Dublin - over ten years, in fact - but that'll be remedied next summer when the alt-rock hero returns.

Cave and his cohorts will play the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham on Wednesday, June 6th, and what's more, they'll be supported by none other than Patti Smith and her band.

Tickets are €69.50 including booking fee and on sale this coming Monday, October 23rd at 9am.
