ASHEVILLE, NC – SIGUR RÓS comes to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium October 10th at 8:30pm! Tickets on sale this Friday 4/8 at noon. Icelandic experimental rock band Sigur Rós have announced an upcoming North American tour this Fall.  For the first time in their career the band will be touring without a support act, instead offering the audience two sets (+ intermission) starting from 8:30pm sharp at each show. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 8th at 12pm EST, with a limited number of exclusive packages available that include the best seats in the house, autographed memorabilia and more. For further information and to participate in an exclusive presale go to sigur-ros.co.uk.

The month long run is comprised primarily of theater shows, marking the band’s most intimate tour in a decade. In keeping with the scale of the venues, the group will be performing without the string and brass sections that have been characteristic of recent performances, opting instead to focus on the core unit of the band itself.  The shows will give the group a chance to road test new music, the first time since the tour leading up to the acclaimed ( ) album in 2002 that the band has performed new material ahead of album recording sessions. Alongside this experimentation played out in public, the band is also planning on attempting new interpretations of old songs that haven’t been played in a very long time.

Though the scale of the venues and band will be reduced, the live production will be characteristically stunning, designed again by the team behind their previous Knights of Illumination award-winning tour.
