    That was… amazing, astonishing… inhumanly beautiful.
    The crowd at points was completely still, completely silent with awe.
    Grow Till Tall was a perfect, most moving ending. A euphoric explosion of sound which resonated to the bone.
    Thank You Jonsi, Alex, Doddi, Úlfur and Óbó! Eg elska tig!

    We were completely entranced. The sound was perfect, and the whole thing was so incredibly thrilling. I don’t think I’ve ever felt like that at a concert before. I wish I could see this over and over just to work out why it is so special.
    Jonsi looked like he was having so much fun on stage, and I think we all just joined in.

    I loved seeing the band bow at the end, it was so appropriate and a lovely touch.

    Fuck yeah, there was a sunny place in heavy rain. Firstly, I’ve watched Sigur Ros in concert in Japan twice, so I thought I might compare Sigur Ros with Jonsi. But I felt these were basically the same, you guys always had an imagination, creative art and threw stereotype, for examaple using Monome, playng the glockenspiel with bows.. etc. White-noise Alex made in last song was fuckin’ good too. Anyway, during the concert, you said “so fun”, we felt it too “SUPER FUN”. You made us super fun. Maybe if I watch you guys in Japan, I wouldn’t get a feeling high. Thanks to Australian personality I was so happy. I don’t have a friend can share the show in Oz. It’a a pity. and sorry my English is so bad.

    Anyway, Thank you guys, SUPER FUN !!!

    Jonsi のライヴ…超楽しかった。
    最近のSydney は大雨続きで、そんな中電車に揺られながらEnmore Theatre に向かった。一眼レフを持っていこうか迷ったけど、この大雨の中ではキツイと思って家に置いてった。後に後悔するんだけどね。New Town 駅についても雨は降り続き、気持ちもなんか残念な気持ちになっていった。会場に辿りついて、高めの缶ビールVB (1本$6.50) を呑みながらJonsi を待つ。ステージ正面で10メートルくらいかな。ステージはバックにモノクロの森のカーテン、間接照明、楽器の位置にしてもSigur Ros と似たような構成。

    21:30。スタート。
    Jonsi 登場。しっとりとアコースティック。音を探り探りのPA。そして僕、右からの音が無くて戸惑ったけど徐々にバランスも良くなって。正直に言うと、『Sigur Ros とJonsi を比較しちゃって、残念な気持ちになるのかなぁ~』って思ってたんだけど、いざステージが始まってみたらそんな事も考えなくなって、なんか『同じ』って思えた。っていうのも常にクリエイティヴだったし固定観念が無かった。全員が最低でも2つの楽器を演奏できたし、Monome を使ってたり、鉄琴をチェロ(?)の弓で演奏したり、スネアの上にハットを置いたりと相変わらずのJonsi 思考。しっとりナンバーを終えて、ポップかつテンポの速い曲で、いきなりのストロボ!! キター!! ナイス・ステージング!! Sigur Ros 同様、下にセッティングしてたから気付かなかったから、いきなり発行して面を食らった。アッパーみたいに。バンドもオーディエンスもアガってきて大盛り上がり。あの瞬間はあの場所に居たみんなハッピーだったと思う。勿論、僕も。途中でピアノが壊れたみたいだけど、どうでも良かった。アンコールでは客席から地響きが起こり、ホワイト・ノイズと共に終了。

    ライヴの途中でJonsi が「楽しい」って言ってた。両手でマイクを握って左右に動く彼を想像できなかったし、観てる僕達もただ単純に『超楽しかった』。
