confirmed usa tour dates, presale and bonus goodies

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

the dates for jónsi’s second and final us ‘go’ album tour have been confirmed on the concerts page. the dates will go on exclusive pre-sale here on between tues – fri next week (july 27- 30).

this amazing show has drawn plaudits to equal – and possibly even eclipse – sigur rós’s own fearsome live reputation and has to be seen to be believed. check out the video below for proof.

special goodies for concertgoers

everyone buying tickets to jónsi’s upcoming american, uk, europe and asia concerts will get:

  • a sneak preview of the upcoming sigur rós live film
    things have been moving on apace with the film we are making of sigur rós’s final concerts in london in november 2008, and we are currently finalising two exclusive work-in-progress edits of songs from the project with all people buying tickets for jónsi’s shows, direct from the computer of director vincent morisset (arcade fire’s ‘miroir noir’, etc) himself.’ these edits will be delivered to ticket purchasers via email.
  • the chance to win ‘ágætis byrjun’ 10th anniversary solid silver pendants
    ticket buyers will be automatically entered into a draw to win an exclusive solid silver limited edition pendant specially created to celebrate the 10th birthday of sigur rós’s classic ‘ágætis byrjun’ album, 20 of which will be distributed to lucky winners at each venue from the merch stand. all winners will be notified in advance by email.
  • the chance to win jónsi & alex original framed artwork
    one super lucky concert goer will also be chosen at the end of the year to receive an original framed work of art by jónsi & alex completed around the release of their excellent riceboy sleeps album. you can check out jónsi & alex’s work, which frequently sells in galleries around the world for thousands of dollars, here.

finally, we’ve added some of our favorite live photos from jónsi’s tour so far to the media page. click the snazzy banner below to check them out.
