Sigur Ros Tickets

“Sigur Rós” is an Icelandic post-rock band formed in 1994. The lineup is: Jónsi ( Jón Þór Birgisson, vocals, guitar), Georg Holm (bass guitar), Kjartan Sveinsson (keys, guitar), Orri Dyrason (drums). Bravely stating that they “will completely change the future of music”, the Icelandic quartet invents their own style, built their own musical world full of dramatic, romantic and repulsive things at the same time. Their homeland is partially “guilty” in their blatant originality. Iceland, which, as we know, has never been the center of the rock and roll culture, bewitches once and for all. The musicians of “Sigur Rós” have no idea how long they can live abroad, not to mention the fact, to leave it forever.

About Sigur Ros

Performing

With his electric guitar, Jonsi Birgisson also enjoys specific playing, using the bow as the cello. The style of the big concert program is, of course, another, more familiar to the public. After the edition of the album, the foursome spent time touring with Will Oldham, “Low”, “Fuck” and Emir Kusturica, performing in their warming up.

Recognition

To the great surprise of the fans, the group “Sigur Rós” provided the second album “Agaetis Byrjiun” (1999). Nothing was surprising, because the record was almost ready in 1998. One of the tunes in the album, “Bium Bium Bambalo” is a version of the ancient Icelandic lullaby, which is passed down from generation to generation. UK music press responded favorably about this disc, European audience honored the Icelanders with their attention, and even in the US, the group was declared a cult. Even Brad Pitt is a fan of “Sigur Rós”.

Touring

In preparation for the European tour of 2000, Radiohead chose them as a support team. After touring with Radiohead, “Sigur Rós” went on an independent world tour in support of their second album. As a part of the tour, they traveled halfway around the world, starting with the United States and Brazil and ending with Europe, and later Japan.

Achievements

The disc title, which is translated as “Good Start” was symbolic. In 2001, the group won Shortlist Prize Award, the American counterpart of Mercury Music Prize, for the disc. Among the musical experts who gave their votes for “Sigur Rós”, were Beck, Trent Reznor, Macy Gray, Dave Grohl, producers Ross Robinson, Mos Def, and Dan the Automator. In 2001, they took part in one more esoteric project - recording of a soundtrack for the film directed by Frorik Por Frioriksson. The final version of the soundtrack, written by the Icelandic composer Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, included two compositions of “Sigur Rós”.
