Yessss another classic E & C road trip!
European tour starts tomorrow!
2013 promises to be an interesting year in the sigur rós universe. having started 2012 with the ambient-leaning and largely-untourable valtari album, they closed with a hometown show in reykjavík hinting at broad changes to come. playing the new song brennisteinn with valtari still very much in the air, the band put a marker in the ground for how their world might look as a newly-forged three-piece (without departing keyboard player kjartan sveinsson).
now, on the cusp of 2013 touring, the sigur rós are - as we write - in portugal rehearsing more new material to be unveiled across europe, the usa and south east asia. coming to a show is the only way you're going to experience this stuff outside crappy youtube clips in the coming months. you know what to do.
matched to this is a new show looking to eclipse the band's previous high-water marks of live presentation. new visuals, new lights and new stage set, and not forgetting a new player (welcome ingrid on viola). plus, of course, the new songs.
oh, and we are excited to announce that supporting on all european dates is the excellent blanck mass and in north america, tim hecker (dc - ottawa) and oneohtrix point never (toronto - sta barbara).
santa barbara fan club pre-sale starts in half an hour and no sign of any emails from the band yet. time to start guessing what it could be. valtari? brennisteinn?
Section General Admission. Is that good?

ugggh i had 4 but messed up
I figured, so I purchased them but wasn't 100% sure. I have a couple others in my box that I am now dropping back in the pool.

I've got an extra pair of GA pit tickets to the Sigur Ros SB show right now...a few minutes left. Get at me if you want them.
I will say that I am stoked that Sigur Ros did not send out the password despite the fact they thought they did. Thanks to Cutter for engaging the band via Twitter and revealing what the password actually was.
For your health
I'm glad they actually have good social media reps and replied. I did look through old emails and one from november did mention that brennisteinn would be the pre-sale code for the 2013 tour, but who'd have known it still was.
Excited for the new EP also. March 22!!
Yeah I got fucked on this. Tickertmaster said presale was Friday.
just an FYI, i was able to pull two GA tickets just now.
hopefully i can grab something nice on Friday or Saturday. best i'm pulling now is section G, which isn't bad but there will be better seats out there
