Anyone else seeing Distant Sky this evening?


#123

Yep!


#124

Yes, can’t wait! It works as a perfect primer for going to see him live next month.

The trailer is spine-tingling


#125

Been avoiding trailers til now, I actually got goosebumps there watching that just now!
Saw the show in Amsterdam… best gig I’ve ever been to & seeing them again in Dublin in June


#126

Working unfortunately!


#127

Sadly not. Out working in Lisbon and despite them showing it here, I’m not sure I can convince my colleague to spend the last night in a cinema.
That said, I’m making up for it in little custard tarts.


#128

According to the cinema screening it tonight, it’s a 90 minute film. The show I saw on the tour was more like two and a half hours though. That’s quite a bit to cut…


#129

My local cinema lists the run time as 135 minutes. It had better be that long for twenty of the Queen’s pounds.


#130

Yeah, it’s definitely 135 minutes!


#131

just noticed there’s an extra screening on now later at night so tempted to get out of work slightly early and go. hmmm.


#132

It’s a great film. We saw it tonight.


#133

I echo these sentiments. Brilliant.


#134

Fuck it, ticket bought. Even though I’m seeing him IRL pretty soon


#135

Well that was all sorts of brilliant.
Bit weird watching in a cinema during the likes of jubilee street and stagger lee where u just want to lose your shit!
Think it’s a really valuable document of a very special tour… will surely get a nice box set type release too.
Roll on Kilmainham in June

It was all kinds of messiah like power smashing genius. Some phenomenal crowd interaction which if not staged - was astonishing. He changed that young kids life at the end I’m thinking.


#137

Main thing is there were a bunch of people clapping in our showing and TBH it was a bit weird not to clap after if you get me? A bit like how I have an instinctive desire to say ‘thanks’ to Alexa after I’ve ordered it to play a song or something.


#138

I found exactly the same thing. No one clapped after the first two or three songs but I definitely felt the urge. And then by the time he was onto tracks 4 and 5 (admittedly non-Skeleton Tree faves) people seemed to have made their peace with it, probably via whispered conversations with their partner to check it wasn’t weird, and were clapping every song.


#139

Ah for us (down in the Sun Theatre in Yarraville) it seemed more like it was only as we got to sort of Red Right Hand and stuff and I presumed the corner doing it were just getting well into their beers by then! :smiley:


#140

I felt the urge at first but no one did and then it went away.
