Jonsi From Sigur Ros Confirms Australian Tour This November

Written by Brayden Darke on May 22, 2012

Confirmation that Icelandic ambient group Sigur Ros will be visiting Australia this November has come this morning. An interview with triple j’s Zan Rowe has revealed that they do have plans for a visit this year, and that the tour would be around November, very close to Harvest Festival.

Zan Rowe spoke to Jonsi Birgisson a few days ago and put the question to him in the interview that was played this morning: “That is true, that is confirmed,” Jonsi replied, and as to when? After thinking about it for a second, he answered, “November”. He also says they will be playing about 4 songs from the band’s latest album Valtari, but to expect classic epic Sigur Ros.

This goes with a previous interview with Drowned in Sound, where he mentions a “short North American tour and a few European dates as well as the festivals, then we’re off to Australia”.

Although the tour won’t be expansive, with Sigur Ros looking to play about 30 shows during 2012, early speculation is that the band will touch in Australia in time for Harvest, which would run from 10th – 18th of November. The lineup will be announced soon, but it’s looking pretty good that they will be on it when it does get announced.

Listen to the full interview here.
