When Australian trio Rüfüs Du Sol went out to Joshua Tree circa early 2018, they came out with what would become a double Grammy-nominated album. Solace, the band’s third LP, made Rüfüs festival headliners and took them on a theater tour around the world, complete with their own double-header at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Now, they take the magic back where it started with Live from Joshua Tree, an emotive, 45-minute live performance feature film.
It’s not a concert in the classic sense, in that it was not filmed in front of an audience. Instead, the band sets up shop in the middle of the stories desert, surrounded by thoughtfully-placed standing LEDs. The set features fan favorites from all three of Rüfüs’ albums, as well as a select few new songs.
“Live from Joshua Tree” is scheduled for a world premiere screening at Los Angeles’ Vista Theatre on Feb. 18. Tickets go on sale Friday at 9 am PT. Check the trailer below, as well as Rüfüs Du Sol’s 2020 tour dates.
