“IDIOT PRAYER: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace” is a film shot in June that will
be streamed as a live experience in North America on July 23rd at 7 PM Pacific Time.
Unlike many virtual concerts, it will not be available for online viewing after the event. It
is truly a “live” experience: no pause, rewind or fast forward. LOL, somehow it sounds
shocking in this age of video streaming, but hey, you don’t go to a real live concert and
The stream is billed as only one showing but there are actually three to
choose from to make it convenient for viewers from different parts of the world. So, if 7
PM doesn’t work for you you could go for 8 PM AEST (Australia and Asia) or 8PM BST
(UK and Europe).
