Nick Cave makes ‘Distant Sky’ concert film available to stream for free

As a Christmas gift to his fans, Nick Cave has released the Bad Seeds’ concert film Distant Sky as a free streamable video.

Distant Sky: Live in Copenhagen is an extended play and originally released in September last year, a film met by critical acclaim when it was given a short theatrical running.

The picture, directed by the award-winning filmmaker David Barnard, shows Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds live from Copenhagen’s Royal Arena in October 2017.

The full-length concert sees the band performing songs from their album Skeleton Tree alongside their essential catalogue. After its original screening, the film was unavailable to stream… until now. In a post on social media, Cave said: “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.”
