If you have been dying to see Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Distant Sky: Live in Copenhagen concert film, now is the time to do it.
That is because Cave himself has uploaded the full concert film to YouTube and Facebook as a very nice Christmas gift, thank you very much.
The ‘Distant Sky: Live in Copenhagen concert film is two hours and 23 minutes long, and was originally recorded live on October 20th, 2017, at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The concert was part of the tour Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds undertook to promote their 2016 sixteenth studio album Skeleton Tree.
Cave announced the free viewing on his Facebook page this morning with the message:
“I’ve been getting many letters on The Red Hand Files asking about access to the Distant Sky Live in Copenhagen movie.
Here it is! With Love at Christmas, Nick”.
Four tracks from the Distant Sky movie were also chosen for an EP of the same name, which you can listen to in the Spotify player below.
The EP charted in 6 countries, but was enormously successful in the UK were it appeared on six charts, including the Vinyl Albums chart where it hit the #1 spot.
The track list for the Distant Sky concert is as follows:
Higgs Boson Blues
From Her to Eternity
The Ship Song
Into My Arms
Girl in Amber
I Need You
Red Right Hand
The Mercy Seat
The Weeping Song
Push the Sky Away
You can watch Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ ‘Distant Sky: Live in Copenhagen‘ in full on YouTube.
And just a quick word of warning, Nick did not mention how long the film would be available to watch for free, so you may want to view it sooner rather than later. (Update, January 3rd, 2020: Sadly, Cage has already removed the film from YouTube — no surprise there, eh?)
