7:00 PM - Sigur Rós

Icelandic experimental rock band Sigur Rós have announced a new leg of North American tour dates for Spring of 2017 which will include a stop at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Friday, April 7 at 7:00 PM.

Continuing the experiment begun this year, the group will be performing as trio, eschewing the string, brass, and other auxiliary musicians that have been a hallmark of live performances the past decade. Once again they will be touring without a support act, performing two career spanning sets (separated by an intermission).

As with the previous tour, this run is largely comprised of theater shows, making for some of the most intimate performances the band has presented in years. The awe-inspiring live visuals, designed by the same team behind their previous Knights of Illumination award-winning tour, have been met with universal praise, pairing with the emotional heft of the music to create a wholly subsuming experience.
