    I don’t believe any words could ever do justice to what I saw, heard, and felt at this show. Jónsi was beyond incredible. Every time I think about it, I find myself shaking my head and smiling in disbelief and complete awe. I’ve never seen anything performed so passionately or beautifully – nothing could ever be compared to this. It was amazing.

    I have been to many concerts over the last 30 years and rarely can I say I have witnessed something new and original. Well done Jónsi, you are a stand-out amongst your artistic peers. A true inspiration.

    I couldn’t agree more with the above comments. An amazing concert, one I’ll I waited patiently for and will never forget. Thank you Jónsi for your music, your inspiration and your emotion.

    Oh, these are not my photos, but they are beautiful. Thought I’d link to them here so others can see them.

    Takk Jónsi.

    I wasn’t at the concert but I sat and spoke to Georg Hólm (had to google to get his name) on the plane from Melbourne to Sydney (the first leg of their journey to Japan) … brushed with fame and I did not know … In a way it’s good because it was more of a casual conversation … Now that I’ve heard their music … WOW and that’s a big WOW!!!

  6. Ian says:

    Sorry the name is not Georg Hólm but Thorvaldur Thor Thorvaldsson. Shows how much I knew the group!!!

    Dodged “Splendour In The Mud” Q-land to see Jonsi et al at “Enmore” Sydney then “Palace” Melbourne…..via “Ticketek”…flights and hotels extra, of course. Have previously witnessed Sigur R in Orstralia and NZ. Is Jonsi the hardest working and most creative musician currently stomping venues around the planet ? Yes, obviously. Is Jonsi’s drummer really Sigur Ros’ drummer with shaved head and 20 kilograms on the waistline ? Possibly. But they both work a drumkit like meticulous, metronomic, amphetamine baboons. 5-star percussion. And is Jonsi sartorially Edward Scissorhands, with angelic tonsils ? Yes again…..obviously. Are you deaf ?? Melbourne weather was wet and cold. But Sydney was cold and wet. Both gigs were delightful. At one show, a man gave me a small plastic cup of “Tooheys” in exchange for $4.50. He wasn’t carrying a gun or wearing a bandit’s mask.
    P.S. To “Orin” from Geelong (on the Bourke Street tram)….home you caught the last train home safely.

    p.p.s. that should read, “hope you caught the last train home safely”
