Directed by award winning filmmaker David Barnard, and filmed in Copenhagen, the new concert film about Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Distant Sky, is set to hit 500 screens around the world – including here in Australia – on 12th April. The concert was filmed as part of the band’s 2017 world tour, at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena in October.
The band’s first shows in three years, they performed their acclaimed Skeleton Tree album alongside their legendary back catalogue, provoking an enthusiastic response from fans, critics and the band alike. The result is reportedly a extraordinary and triumphant live concert from the much-loved and celebrated Australian band.
Skeleton Tree saw Nick Cave incorporate his own personal grief and tragedy into the album with his trademark music expertise. The tour began in Australia in January 2017, before heading to the USA and concluding the tour in Europe, garnering some of the best reviews of their decorated career along the way.
Trafalgar Releasing CEO, Marc Allenby commented, “We are excited to be working with Nick Cave and his team for the third time with this amazing gig from Copenhagen from his most recent, highly acclaimed tour. We are big fans of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds at Trafalgar and look forward to sharing the fruits of this collaboration with cinema goers and music fans alike around the world.”
