During the concert in Copenhagen, the band played a setlist from the entire career of the Cave, back to the title track of their first album ‘From Her to Eternity’ (1984). The majority of the set focused, however, on the moving ‘Skeleton Tree’, that Cave and his band recording as a result of the personal tragedy. The tour was one of the most powerful and moving of his career. Cave sought close contact with the audience and even went hand in hand with some of the people on the first row. The poster for the movie shows how Cave a towel against his face, as if he is crying.
