The kids from the choir were vocal during ‘Jubilee Street’, ‘O Children’ and ‘The Ship Song’ before Nick sent them off home to bed.

Like the Sydney show earlier in the week, this tour focuses on the new ‘Push The Sky Away’ album although Cave and the Bad Seeds only performed seven of the nine songs at the Melbourne show as opposed to the full album in Sydney.

‘Papa Won’t You Leave Home’, ‘Into My Arms’ and ‘Tupelo’ were added to the second part of the show but not performed in Sydney.
