Surprises at the Upcoming Sigur Rós Concert in Minneapolis


Posted on 8th September, by ParkandShop

This Icelandic trio is known for wowing their sigurros_web_new-592x432audience, and with several new surprises in their current tour, they are on point to deliver once again. Usually playing with a string and orchestra section as well as a supporting act, they’ve dropped all three elements for a 2-part show.

The two sets are distinct and complete with an intermission. The band says their setlists bring brand new music, including unreleased songs (for the first time in over a decade), as well as new interpretations of old songs they haven’t played in many years. In spite of the changes, fans can expect the same stunning production they are used to, with design by the award-winning team that did the Knights of Illumination tour.

The band stated about the tour, “This time, in addition to playing songs you know, we wanted to remember the seat-of-your-pants feeling experienced in the wake of ágætis byrjun, when for two years we formed and re-formed the songs that would go on to be the ( ) album live in front of people, night after night. All we can say right now is it’s going to be different, with new unreleased songs, a new show and maybe some other *new* things. Beyond that, we can only ask you to trust us on this one.”

You can experience this magical 2-set performance at the Orpheum Theatre on Thursday, September 29th at 8:30 pm. Tickets are $53 – $83. There is $6 downtown Minneapolis parking after 4 pm at the Park and Shop ramps. They are a short walk from the theater.
