Sigur Rós to embark on North American theater tour, debut new music

Sigur Ros profile

There’s nothing quite like an artist performing a theater show. It’s a breathtaking chance to experience the music on a more personal level, and we are big supporters of the idea. Sigur Rós is the most recent band to announce such a tour, coming to a small selection of North American cities in September and October.

The band will be performing as a trio, without any backing strings or brass sections. This promises a new sound to some of their old material in addition to the new music being debuted. The stage setting will be designed by the award-winning team that created the Knights Of Illumination tour. Check out all the dates below.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12pm EST, and come in two varieties. Fans can purchase regular tickets or they can opt for the “Besta” package, which includes one of the better seats in the venue and a tour diary signed by the band.
