Nick Cave and Warren Ellis staged one of the most revered tours of this summer. If you weren’t able to see them, then ABC iview has the next best thing.
Kingdom In The Sky: Nick Cave & Warren Ellis Live at Hanging Rock is a short concert film/documentary that pulls together some of the best moments of the duo’s performance at the iconic Victorian locale as well as some insights into the relationships the musicians have with their audience.
These insights come from fans at the concert (including Courtney Barnett, who opened the show) who share the breadth of their unique experiences with Nick and Warren’s music and what it has meant to them.
The set features plenty of songs from the duo’s 2021 album Carnage, as well as some Bad Seeds classics, all shot beautifully and featuring Cave and Ellis’ incredible backing band.
It’s a truly beautiful snapshot of an extraordinary recent music moment in Australia, and now it’s your to watch at home.
