RÜFÜS DU SOL AUSTRALIAN SET TO RELEASE LIVE FROM JOSHUA TREE FILM AND ALBUM + AUS PREMIERE SCREENINGS FOR BUSHFIRE AID

2x Grammy-nominated Aussie trio RÜFÜS DU SOL have recently pulled off a world first – performing a fully-fledged live concert in the middle of a desert – TO NO ONE!  But thankfully for all of us RÜFÜS DU SOL lovers, they filmed it all and it’ll be coming out as a live album and live film next Friday March 6.  In a 45-minute immersive film traversing the depths of the band’s famed shows and critically acclaimed studio albums, RÜFÜS DU SOL: Live from Joshua Tree brings their emotive live experience from the global stage to the screen. Featuring never-before-heard material set amongst the allure of the Great American West, the sensory film is an homage to the band’s arrival as a global creative force.

Speaking on where the LIVE FROM JOSHUA TREE project idea came from, drummer James Hunt says, “We started joking about putting together a sunrise set in the desert where we would play to no one.  People talk a lot of shit in the desert at 5am, but walking around this alien world at dawn, we definitely felt there was something calling us back out there.  So, over an 18 month period, we workshopped ideas and locations and finally were able to put time aside to shoot in September last year.  It was decided sunset would be more practical for our crew.  We originally planned for it to be a live stream, but as the idea grew and the production got bigger and bigger, it organically morphed into a film.  It’s something that’s taken two years to pull together and something we are so excited to share with the world and make available everywhere.”

And this week they announced their awesome NIGHT OF LIVE CONCERT FILMS where they’ll be premiering a screening of their soon-to-be-released LIVE FROM JOSHUA TREE film on March 4 in both Melbourne at IMAX and Sydney at RITZ CINEMAS RANDWICK.  They’ll then be screening the iconic Chemical Brothers DON’T THINK documentary straight after their own film, and all proceeds from the night will be going towards the Red Cross to go straight to Australian bushfire relief.
