Nick Cave in Iceland

Australian musician Nick Cave is currently in Iceland on holiday with his family. He was spotted in restaurant Sjávarréttakjallarinn in Reykjavík, where he was enjoying Icelandic seafood.

According to Fréttabladid, Cave arrived last Friday and will stay for a few more days. Rakel Gardarsdóttir, manager of touring ensemble Vesturport, told Fréttabladid that the singer had fallen in love with Iceland when he held a concert here last September.

Gardarsdóttir believed that Cave wanted to show the country to his wife and two children, who were not able to accompany him last time.

Reportedly, the Caves rented a summer house in the countryside and were believed to have gone horseback riding. Cave had tried riding Icelandic horses on his last visit.

Gardarsdóttir also said Cave is currently working with Icelandic actor Gísli Örn Gardarsson. Cave wrote the music for his play Hamskiptin, which is being staged in London.

Cave is also composing the music for play Faust to be staged by Reykjavík-based Vesturport in May in Germany, so Gardarsdóttir believes that Cave will visit Iceland again soon.
