Sigur Ros Rolls Out 2013 North American Tour Dates
Icelandic favorites Sigur Ros will tour North America next spring, and also will release a new EP. In fact, a digital copy of the three-song EP is free for everyone that buys a ticket to the tour.
The group’s official website says that fans can expect something all new on this outing.
“Sigur Rós follow up their run of summer festivals by announcing their biggest North American tour to date. The trek, which includes a headlining show at New York City’s prestigious Madison Square Garden, will be the most expansive Sigur Rós live experience yet, with the band taking the stage alongside all the additional players and expanded brass and string sections of the summer shows,” said the website.
“This time, however, they will be incorporated into a completely new show, which also comes with the potent promise of brand new material, post-dating even this year’s ambient-leaning Valtari album” the site continued. “We are pleased to announce that tickets to our upcoming North American 2013 spring tour will get you more than just entry to the show! Every ticket purchased will include a digital copy of a three-track EP, containing new and unreleased music, made available to ticket holders on March 22nd, 2013”
The aforementioned Madison Square Garden show will take place March 25, 2013 and will be the second show on the tour. The first will be held at the Patriot Center in Washington, D.C. the previous night.
After those concerts, the group will stay on the road through April 17, when they perform at the Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco. Other cities on the itinerary include Boston, Montreal, Ottawa, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Houston and Phoenix.
Sigur Ros is currently on tour in Australia, and will also visit Asia before the end of the year. Before coming to North America next year, they will undertake a European tour in February and March.
