If you missed out on seeing Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds on their intensely emotional Skeleton Tree tour in 2017, then fear not, because the group are releasing a brand new concert film to theatres this April.
In 2016, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released the documentary film One More Time With Feeling. Recorded in 2015, following the death of Cave’s 15-year-old son Arthur, the documentary shows the beloved musician bearing his soul as he attempts to deal with the heartbreak that he suffered through.
The album that resulted from this tragedy, Skeleton Tree, saw Cave and his band at their emotional best, sharing some deeply personal, introspective songs, with the ensuing tour allowing the whole world to share in his grief.
Now, as Rolling Stone reports, a concert film, titled Distant Sky and recorded during the Denmark leg of the Skeleton Tree tour, will be making its way to cinemas for one night only.
Filmed by David Barnard, who has worked with the likes of Radiohead, Björk, and Alice Cooper, the film showcases Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds during their performance at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen on October 20th of last year.
Consisting of songs that date back to the group’s first album, the majority of the performance draws from the heartbreaking Skeleton Tree, and allows the audience to see Cave at his tender best.
The film is set to premiere in theatres around the world on April 12th for one night only. For ticket details, and help in finding a participating cinema near you, be sure to hit up Nick Cave’s website for more information.
