Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are releasing a new concert film titled ‘Distant Sky – Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds Live in Copenhagen’.

It’s set for release on April 12 and will be shown in 500 cinemas around the world for one day only.

Directed by filmmaker David Barnard, the concert movie was filmed during the band’s tour behind the Bad Seeds’ 2016 album, Skeleton Tree. You can head to the film’s official website to grab tickets at participating cinemas.


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).

Meanwhile, the band have been confirmed for Primavera.

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.

Along with a headline performance from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds on June 1, Primavera is also the latest European festival to welcome a returning Arctic Monkeys – who will close the event with a headline set on Saturday night (June 2).


Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will also be playing a huge show in Ireland in June, with Patti Smith due to support.

Cave and his band will play their first show in Ireland for over 10 years with the gig, which is due to take place in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin on June 6, 2018.
