Sigur Ros at the Winspear Opera House – On Sale Friday at 10pam

Sigur Rós today announce the first dates of an extensive world tour, their first in
nearly five years, taking in Mexico, Canada and the United States this Spring and
Summer. Tickets are on sale at 10am local time on Friday 25 February at this site.

The band is in the process of writing and recording their first new studio album
since 2013’s Kveikur and will air new songs at the shows, alongside material drawn from their acclaimed 25-year discography.

Sigur Rós founding members Jónsi and Georg Holm are joined in the studio and on tour by former member Kjartan Sveinsson, who is rejoining the band almost a decade after stepping away to focus on other projects.

Sigur Rós are one of the most successful bands of recent times and one of Iceland’s most successful acts of all time, with six number ones in their home country and a trio of Platinum albums globally.

In the years since Kveikur, the band launched the ‘Liminal’ sound baths and endless playlists, built around blissed-out re-imaginings of moments from Sigur Rós’s catalogue both familiar and obscure. In 2020 they released the almost mythical ‘lost’ recordings Odin’s Raven Magic, an orchestral album originally made nearly two decades prior.
