Jónsi Birgisson: Tour Dates

Jónsi Thor Birgisson Announces Tour Dates

On April 6, Sigur Ros front man Jon "Jónsi" Thor Birgisson will release his solo debut, Go (XL Recordings), and set out on his first solo North American tour.

The tour, which begins in Vancouver, BC, will see Jónsi teaming up with 59 Productions to create a dazzling stage atmosphere that will brilliantly complement his phenomenal new songs. The result is set to be one of the spring's most incredible live shows. 59 Productions is an exciting production design team that is known for creating on-stage environments using the latest technology and artistic expertise. This magical display, coupled with Jónsi's epic songs, will make for an incredible live music experience that should not be missed.

Additionally, Jónsi has just shot the first video for the album for the song "Go Do." Directed by Arni & Kinski (previously responsible for no fewer than six Sigur Rós videos), the video was filmed on location in Iceland at the end of 2009, when there are only four hours of daylight. Based around a bird motif, the video reflects the song's giddy springtime urgency, and is yet another brilliant visual from the Sigur Rós camp.
