Sigur Rós

One of Only Eight Exclusive Shows in the US

Sigur Rós announce eight new US tour dates for this fall. This upcoming tour will be the first time these eight cities will experience the full orchestral performance. Since 2022, Sigur Rós have established orchestral accompaniment as their standard method of touring. Reuniting with keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson, the members played alongside full orchestras in grand concert halls across Europe and North America. The band enlisted the Wordless Music Orchestra for their Stateside dates, where they performed new material as well as favorites from their extensive catalog. Described as “an articulation of beauty almost beyond comprehension” (Dallas Observer), the performances are simultaneously as expressive and indescribable as Hopelandic, all a testament to the timeless pull of Sigur Rós.

The new tour comes in the wake of a fruitful era for the band’s fans. At the start of the new decade, the band dove deep into their archives for long-anticipated works. They first released Odin’s Raven Magic (2020), an orchestral album originally made nearly two decades prior, and later reissued ( ) for its 20th anniversary in 2022. Their first collection of new material in nearly a decade, ÁTTA (2023) leans heavily towards the orchestral, featuring contributions from the London Contemporary Orchestra. With close to ten million albums sold, Sigur Rós stands as one of the most ambitious and acclaimed bands of recent times, whose new artistic endeavors only points towards an expansive, exciting future.
