Almost exactly four years have passed, since Sigur Rós played their last concert at Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt. Some festival shows were following, but beside that, there was no other way to experience the trio around front man Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson in Germany. Now on 14.10.2017, the Icelanders returned to the same ground as in 2013. As announced, no opening act was brought, as I Break Horses at the last Sigur Rós concert in Frankfurt. Instead of this: four new songs embedded in a fifteen song consisting live set, devided by a break of 20 minutes.
Winter is still around. Fortunately, the post-rock band VAR can offer the perfect soundtrack for this time of the year. Their new album called Vetur (=Icelandic for winter) was just released in Japan in December and will soon be available also via Spotify and iTunes.
The festival summer comes closer quickly! And right before it’s time again for all of us to hang around on filthy camping grounds and dance into the night in front of the stages of this country, we’ll tell you where you can do all this to the music of which Icelandic band.
