Coming live from Copenhagen…
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have released the first trailer for Distant Sky, their forthcoming concert film which tells the story of one night on their European tour last year.
Captured at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena in October 2017, the new film will show the band performing recent cuts off latest album Skeleton Tree, along with some of their most recognisable hits from a career spanning more than 30 years.
It also features a surprise appearance from Danish soprano Else Torp, who joined The Bad Seeds on stage in Copenhagen for a unique live performance of the title track ‘Distant Sky’.
The touring band members on the film include 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, which is directed by David Barnard, will be shown in 500 cinemas across the UK for one night only on April 12.
The Barcelona festival takes place from May 30 to June 2, and will see Belle & Sebastian kicking things off with a set on Wednesday night (May 30).
The first full day of the festival comes on May 31, and it’s Bjork that will take the first major headline set of the festival, supported by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
