Sigur Rós follow up their run of summer festivals by announcing their first headline tour since 2008 for UK/Europe in February/March 2013. The 15-date run will see the band take the stage alongside all the additional players and expanded brass and string sections of the summer shows. This time, however, they will be incorporated into a completely new show, which also comes with the potent promise of brand new material, post-dating even this year’s ambient-leaning ‘Valtari’ album.
“You are limited to what you can accomplish with the 20-minute changeovers and all other constraints of a festival, to us, this summer’s really been one long warm-up for what’s to come.” says bassist Georg Holm.
There are rumblings from within the band of a “hard left turn” in terms of what these changes might constitute. Suffice to say, for now it’s set to be a compelling ‘watch this space’ scenario.
Sigur Ros will play Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Tuesday 5th March 2013 as part of a wider UK tour. Tickets priced £27.50 will be available from 9.00am on Friday 14th September at Midland Box Office: 0870 320 7000 or online at Wolves Civic Hall
