    Jonsi reached in to my body and touched my soul tonight. A jaw dropping experience. The evocative notes and magical textures rolled through my body and put me under their spell.

     Nah. Only messing. But concert was cool. Top form.

    A friend of mine introduce me to Sigur Ros and Jonsi last year when I was living in Chile, it was like opening my ears for the first time, all that energy, that passion, tranquility and colors… amazing!

    I came to the United States a couple of months ago, and as soon as I knew that Jonsi will be performing here in NYC I bought my ticket, even I knew that I would be there all my myself, I endured it and I had the most amazing night of my life, I was speechless.

    When I heard his voice and the music, the melody, I felt the energy through my body, and let it wake up every single cell in my, I just felt it and dance, and realized that I’m alive!

    I can’t even describe the sensation, the power, the energy, the passion… Jonsi’s voice, the music, the colors, it was pure magic and energy… it was one of those night that you want to last forever.

    I wanted to enjoy every single moment of the concert so I just recorded one video for my friend in Chile…

    Like unleashing the most wonderful genies from a bottle. The world is a much better place just knowing you are here.

    awesome show last night. so fulfilling and just kind of hard to describe.
    Terminal 5 show in the spring was way better– last night they didnt have the ‘destroyed framework backdrop’

    Great performance but quite disappointed with the decision to stage this performance without any of physical set pieces that MADE the Terminal 5 show back in May. The NYC show in May was half art installation, half concert. The November show was a concert with a big screen. Disappointed, but still a fan.

    I was, until that night, a casual fan. Originally, I went to that show to accompany a friend and was not expecting THAT. Beforehand, I had joked about having an ethereal experience, and thats exactly what I got. Just when i thought the performance might be over; then the encore came. I have not stopped talking about the show since, nor have I stopped listening to the music. I am far….very far, from being disappointed with that show! I am more than a casual fan now. It is nice to feel inspired again!
    Thank you!
    Thank you!
    Thank you!

    Does anyone know the song that was played before New Piano Song (I think)? It was a faster song and I believe there were two drummers. I know it’s not Ukulele.

    Before seeing Greg C.’s comments, I thought that despite not having physical stage set-up, it was one of the most exhilarating concert experiences I have ever been too. The music felt so raw and compelling; Jónsi and his band shook me down to my most basic human self. Rarely have I been so firmly in the present as I was at the Hammerstein concert.

    Now that I know that the Go Tour had even more to offer… I may have to make another trip from Canada for another Go.

    For Matthew.
    It says Piano Des on the setlist. http://jonsi.com/forum/topic/491

    I was right up front, and we even got a setlist!!

    the very best show I’ve ever been to. how amazing is it that you can feel so many wonderful things while standing in a room full of people while several individuals on stage make sounds come out of strangely shaped machines…

    <3 i will never forget this night, nor the people i shared it with.
