Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: new album and June concert at the Arena

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds has announced his UK and Europe tour next year. One of the best live productions in the world will give more than 30 concerts in 19 countries, including Budapest, where László Papp will play at the Budapest Sport Arena on June 2nd. The performances of the Australian band were described by the Guardian critic as a "joyful and unexpected uplifting experience", while Independent reports that concerts are "tense and thunderous at one moment and gentle and cathartic at another."

Program and cast

Budapest Arena

The predecessor of the Sport Arena, the Budapest Sports Hall designed by István Kiss, was inaugurated on February 12, 1982. The building was modeled on the Leninrgad Jubilee Sports Palace, although it was slightly larger. It received 12,500 spectators. In December 1999, the Budapest Sports Hall became a fixture during the Christmas market. The disaster shocked the public as the BS was the only indoor building that could accommodate thousands of people, hosting many music concerts, cultural events, and sports events. The building was completely burnt down and there was no possibility of its restoration, so a new sports hall was begun and its construction began on June 30, 2001. The ceremony was handed over on March 13, 2003.

The opening ceremony took place on March 14 and ended with a gigantic classical music concert. The Budapest Sportarena has been named after László Papp since May 28, 2004.
