Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ phenomenal tour started in Australia in January 2017, before continuing on to the USA and ending in Europe. Filmed at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena in October 2017, Distant Sky captures an extraordinary and triumphant live concert from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Performing new album ‘Skeleton Tree’s’ exquisite compositions alongside songs from their essential catalogue, the band’s first shows in 3 years provoked an ecstatic response in fans, critics and band alike, renewing profound and intimate relationships wherever they played:

★★★★★ “An extraordinary response to the unimaginable” The Telegraph

★★★★★ “Joyous and unexpectedly triumphant” The Guardian

★★★★★ “Tense and thunderous at times, tender and cathartic at others. It’s masterful.” The Independent

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ seven-piece touring line-up features Nick Cave (vocals, piano), Warren Ellis (piano, keyboards, violin, tenor guitar), Martyn Casey (bass), Thomas Wydler (drums), Jim Sclavunos (vibraphone, percussion, piano), George Vjestica (guitar) and Larry Mullins (keyboards, piano).

The film features Danish soprano Else Torp, who joined Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds on stage in Copenhagen for a unique live performance of the title track ‘Distant Sky’. Else also appears on the recorded track, taken from their 2016 album Skeleton Tree.

Tickets are now on sale.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
