Acclaimed Australian crooner Mikelangelo (Black Sea Gentlemen, La Clique) takes on three of the great poets of rock’n’roll - Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen - in a show filled with beauty, power and humour.
With masterful control, Mikelangelo brings together a brilliant collection of songs, stripping them back to reveal immense power and vulnerability, weaving songs together with his own personal stories and reflections in this transporting and entertaining show. Mikelangelo’s voice is smooth and rich as velvet, making each song his own. His guitar playing summons great breadth and emotion and his accordion and piano playing add a delightful and melodic change of mood.
The show traverses genres and decades, from the serious to the joyous to the sublime, with stunning interpretations of Cave’s ‘Into My Arms’, Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ and Wait’s foot stomping ‘Goin’ Out West’ and more. Later in the show Mikelangelo treats us to some of his original songs, demonstrating that he can more than hold his own as a songwriter amongst such esteemed company.
Cave-Waits-Cohen has toured to great response from audiences and critics from Sydney to Melbourne to Adelaide to Darwin, through regional Victoria, Queensland and NSW and to the 2017 Edinburgh Festival.
Mikelangelo has toured widely, winning the prestigious Olivier Award in London and recently being nominated for a Helpmann Award. He has appeared in Rockwiz, The Project and Australia Wide, as well as Philip Adams Late Night Live and Conversations with Richard Fidler. He is internationally acclaimed as the front man of his group the Black Sea Gentlemen and has played to packed houses from the Sydney opera house to the backstreets of Budapest to London’s West End, winning award and building a devout following with his original songs and his impressive showmanship.
