Sigur Rós, whose new album is scheduled to drop sometime late 2008, will be bringing their trademark brand of beautiful, Icelandic melodrama to the Uptown theater on June 12th. For reasons unknown to anyone but the band themselves, their U.S. tour consists of only four stops: New York, Bonnaroo and the unbelievably lucky cities of Omaha and Kansas City.
Fellow Icelanders Amiina will be both opening and providing string support for the band.
Tickets are available now at Ticketmaster; there is absolutely no excuse for missing this monumentous show.
In other Sigur Rós news: be sure to head over to their website on the morning of Tuesday, May 27th for an announcement that has something to do with this very oblique image.
