Concert announcement – Sigur Rós at Deer Lake Park, Vancouver, May 27 2013
Iceland’s Sigur Rós will play Deer Lake Park in Vancouver May 27 2013, Live Nation has just announced.
From the press release: “Having started 2012 with the ambient-leaning and largely-untourable Valtari album, they closed with a hometown show in Reykjavík hinting at broad changes to come. Playing the new song “brennisteinn” with Valtari still very much in the air, the band put a marker in the ground for how their world might look as a newly-forged three-piece (without departing keyboard player Kjartan Sveinsson).
“Now, on the cusp of their 2013 tour, Sigur Rós are in Portugal rehearsing more new material to be unveiled across Europe, North America and South East Asia.
“This tour will feature a new show looking to eclipse the band’s previous high-water marks of live presentation. New visuals, new lights and new stage set, and not forgetting a new player (welcome Ingrid on viola). Plus, of course, the new songs.”
Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. this Friday, March 1, at livenation.com. Tickets are $55 (limited early bird tickets for $45).
