Sigur Rós announce the ultimate U.S. leg of their globe-spanning tour, which will consist of a final, 20-show run starting at Detroit’s Laneway Festival on September 14th. The tour began last year on the East Coast trailing the release of the band’s sixth studio album Valtari, and will continue following the June 2013 release of its hard-rocking successor, Kveikur (out June 18th).
Sigur Rós will be in Orlando at the UCF Arena on October 8, 2013. Tickets start at $27.50 and are available at the UCF Arena Box Office, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 14 at 10am.
This tour will reach deep into America, and will see Sigur Rós play the biggest shows of their career in some of the country’s most renowned venues, which included NYC’s Madison Square Garden earlier this year. Sigur Rós’ acclaimed live show is not to missed, and can be seen for the final time in the U.S. during their tour this fall – when it’s done, it’s done.
Starting today, you can stream Kveikur, the band’s first release on XL Recordings worldwide, in its entirety via Amazon.com. The Icelandic three-piece - Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason – have already given us a taste of the new album on the American late-night circuit, performing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
