Cave waits Cohen at The Music Lounge – Wollongong Town Hall
Mikelangelo performs his triumphant one-man show taking on three of the great poets of popular music – Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen.
Only a powerhouse like Mikelangelo could pull off this iconic trifecta. Having toured the world to great acclaim from the Sydney Opera House to London’s West End, he is one of Australia’s rising stars. Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen stole his heart and soul as a young man, and now he delivers a stunningly original show inspired by these three influential artists.
A highly entertaining and engaging personality, Mikelangelo brings together a brilliant collection of songs, truly making them his own with his remarkable baritone voice, beautiful guitar playing and engaging storytelling. In 2015, Cave Waits Cohen played to full houses from Melbourne to Darwin to Sydney to Tallarook, seeing Mikelangelo traverse much of Australia with this remarkable show.
Mikelangelo has toured widely, winning the prestigious Olivier Award in London and being recently nominated for aHelpmann Award. He has appeared on RocKwiz, The Projectand Australia Wide, as well as Philip Adams Late Night Liveand Conversations with Richard Fidler. His live album of Cave, Waits and Cohen songs, Some Velvet Evening, will be available at the show.
