One of the highlights of Jónsi’s show in Atlanta this Halloween was the unreleased material that he and his band played. “St. Naive” is one of these unreleased songs, and you can stream it above. I implore you to see one of his live shows before he returns to Iceland. Each time I’ve seen him, I’ve been awestruck. It’s simply beautiful.
After just purchasing my ticket to see Jónsi for the second time, I am extremely excited for the arrival of October and the release of this video for Go staple, ”Animal Arithmetic.” If you’re a fan of Jónsi and you haven’t checked out his upcoming tour dates, click here to see if he’ll be in your area.
When I noticed a two month gap between his shows in Poland and the Netherlands, I was curious to see if the Sigur Rós frontman would add more dates, silently hoping for a couple back here in the states. As it turns out, Jónsi will indeed be returning to the US, playing shows from coast to coast in the following cities:
San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Tempe, Grand Prairie, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Asheville, Atlanta, St Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Columbus, Washington, and New York.
While the official dates have yet to be released, you can join the mailing list to find out venue/ticket information as soon as it’s available, and check out the video above for a glimpse into the beauty in store for you.
"This fall is definitely something to look forward to."
“a wonderful video that’s of interest to everyone who has been affected by eruption of the eyjafjallajökull volcano in iceland. shot by sean stiegemeier at the start of may, using kolniður by jónsi as soundtrack, it shows the power of the volcano and the amazing icelandic landscape. making a cameo is something heima fans might recognise.”
Last Saturday, I drove over to NYC to see Jónsi Terminal 5. I could not have been more excited since Sigur Rós has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I had high expectations, but they were exceeded beyond anything I could have imagined. He closed with a beautiful, extended rendition of “Grow Till Tall,” which you can watch above. The performance and production of both “Kolinður” and “Sinking Friendships” were also standouts, so be sure to check out those videos below.
