2017 LOS ANGELES SHOWS

the los angeles philharmonic have announced that programming for their reykjavík festival will include three special shows by sigur rós performing some of their best loved works with the orchestra. this is the first time the band will have played publicly with an orchestra since shows for their unreleased work odin’s raven magic in 2002-3.

co-curated by icelandic composer daníel bjarnason and la phil conductor laureate esa-pekka salonen, the icelandic band will perform three nights at walt disney concert hall, playing career-spanning sets including fan-favorites (with orchestral accompaniment) and - “if things go to plan” - new, unreleased music (without orchestra).

each sigur rós performance (april 13, 14, 15) will be prefaced by a different symphonic and choral program. on april 13 festival co-curator salonen will lead the la phil in the world premier of a new violin concerto from daníel bjarnason, performed by pekka kuusisto. bjarnarson first worked with sigur rós when he conducted the session on the band’s song “ára bátur” london’s abbey road for the með suð í eyrum… album in 2008.

the reykjavík festival is designed as an exploration of the eclectic icelandic music scene, highlighting the creativity thriving in reykjavík and covering a wide spectrum of music, from chamber, choral and symphonic to pop music.

2017 NORTH AMERICAN SHOWS

sigur rós have announced a new leg of north american tour dates for spring of 2017. continuing the experiment begun this year, the group will be performing as trio, eschewing the string, brass, and other auxiliary musicians that have been a hallmark of live performances the past decade. once again they will be touring without a support act, performing two career spanning sets (separated by an intermission) starting from 8:30pm sharp at each show.

as with the previous tour, this run is largely comprised of theater shows, making for some of the most intimate performances the band has presented in years. the awe-inspiring live visuals, designed by the same team behind their previous knights of illumination award-winning tour, have been met with universal praise, pairing with the emotional heft of the music to create a wholly subsuming experience.
