Icelandic post-rock stars Sigur Ros will return to Chicago for a date at Auditorium Theater. Known for their brooding, dynamic instrumentals, the band is capable of creating moods no modern peers can successfully emulate. Sure to be a unique show and rare opportunity, this one will offer something for all music fans.
What We Say
Icelandic experimental rock band Sigur Rós have announced a new leg of North American tour dates for Spring of 2017. Continuing the experiment begun this year, the group will be performing as trio, eschewing the string, brass, and other auxiliary musicians that have been a hallmark of live performances the past decade. Once again they will be touring without a support act, performing two career spanning sets.
As with the previous tour, this run is largely comprised of theater shows, making for some of the most intimate performances the band has presented in years. The awe-inspiring live visuals, designed by the same team behind their previous Knights of Illumination award-winning tour, have been met with universal praise, pairing with the emotional heft of the music to create a wholly subsuming experience.
