Icelandic trio on tour in venues across Europe in September, tickets on sale Fri 3 Feb
One of Iceland's most popular musical exports, Sigur Rós, are taking off on tour across Europe in September 2017.
Their An Evening with Sigur Rós tour will stop at a small number of hand-picked venues across the UK, including o2 Apollo, Manchester; Eventim Apollo, London and SEC Armadillo, Glasgow.
Their UK dates are part of a larger European tour that takes in The Netherlands, Sweden, France, Norway and Germany, and is the first time the band has toured in Europe without a support act. Instead, this tour will be an extended evening made up of two short sets and an interval.
An Evening with Sigur Rós follows their award-winning Knights of Illumination tour and is designed by the team behind that aesthetically-grand production. The group will play from their back catalogue, as well as introducing new music that is aimed at an upcoming eighth studio album.
