Sigur Ros Announces North American Tour

Published: 2005-06-14
Pretty much the only band that can sell tons of records that don't contain any real words, Sigur Ros will bring its spacey electro-pop back to North America for fall audiences to chill to. Apart from the group's Hawaii performance coming at the end of the tour's Australian leg in August, the American and Canadian run will begin September 6th in Atlanta.

The 22-date jaunt doesn't skimp on Canadian stops, with the boys in Sigur Ros visiting four Canadian cities: Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver. The final stop for the Icelandic crew will be in the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas on October 6th.

It's been two and a half years since Sigur Ros released its last full-length, the compelling ( )ůyes, that's what it's called. Since 2002 the band has released a three-song EP called Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do and contributed a song to the Royal Danish Ballet's production of The Little Match Girl. Word has it that a brand new Sigur Ros album will be on the streets this fall.

The Canadian stops on Sigur Ros fall tour look like this:

September 16, Montreal, QC - Theatre Maisonneeuve
September 18, Ottawa, ON - TBA
September 19, Toronto, ON - Massey Hall
September 27, Vancouver, BC - Orpheum Theatre
