From Iceland — Nick Cave Sent To ER In Reykjavík

Nick Cave Sent To ER In Reykjavík

Published June 30, 2013

Australian musician Nick Cave sought assistance from Landspitali’s emergency room last night after taking a spill during his performance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival.
Festival organiser Tómas Young told RÚV that Cave tumbled off the stage while performing Jubilee Street, but he re-appeared on stage 30 seconds later and finished his set as if nothing had gone wrong.
However, after the 3 hour performance Cave was taken to the hospital where he was examined and given some painkillers. He is badly bruised, but otherwise fine.
Incidentally, Cave fell from a ramp that was constructed at his own request so that he could get closer to the audience during his set.
Approximately 3000 people attended the 3-day festival at the old military base in Keflavík.
