Watch Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Play “Stagger Lee” In An Austin City Limits Web Exclusive
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds performed at Austin City Limits back in July, and a truncated version of that set will be aired on the ACL broadcast this weekend. Cave and the band played a slew of crowd favorites, including “Tupelo” and “Red Right Hand.” Their rendition of the classic American folk song “Stagger Lee,” which they covered on the 1996 album Murder Ballads, will not be included in the televised broadcast, but we’ve got that outtake for you to see today. It’s unsurprising that Cave’s performance is stellar, but the uncomfortably well-lit crowd of adoring fans makes the video all the more enjoyable to watch. Check out the setlist and watch “Stagger Lee” below.
Here’s the setlist that will air on Austin City Limits:
01 “Jubilee Street”
03 “Red Right Hand”
05 “From Her to Eternity”
06 “Love Letter”
07 “God Is In The House”
08 “The Mercy Seat”
09 “Push The Sky Away”
The Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds episode of Austin City Limits will air on 11/1 at 9PM EST.
