Icelandic art rockers Sigur Ros have announced the dates of their fall tour.
The band will not tour with a supporting act. Instead, they will play two sets a night with an intermission. Fans will also have access to exclusives such as the best seats in the venue and autographed memorabilia.
The tour will consist of theatre shows, giving Sigur Ros the chance to test out new material and experiment with old favorites.They will once again join forces with team behind their Knights of Illumination Tour for the live production.
“Every time you go on tour you want it to be different…and every time it is, usually because you have a new album you want to play people. And that can be fun, because you have to work out how to recreate all the complicated stuff you did in the studio for the stage. But there was a time when things were the other way round, when we worked stuff out on the road, and trying to capture lightning in a bottle was a problem for the studio later on. This time, in addition to playing songs you know, we wanted to remember the seat-of-your-pants feeling experienced in the wake of ágætis byrjun, when for two years we formed and re-formed the songs that would go on to be the ( ) album live in front of people, night after night. All we can say right now is it’s going to be different, with new unreleased songs, a new show and maybe some other *new* things. Beyond that, we can only ask you to trust us on this one,” the band said in a statement.
