Sigur Ros coming (back) to Brighton is a very exciting thing – I’m surprised this hasn’t sold out yet.
The Brighton Centre - a building as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside - is no-one’s favourite venue. It would take a pretty special band to get me in there; like Sigur Ros for example. With their lights/films/visuals, expansive sound and general sense of the dramatic, they are one of the few bands that could fill that massive space with a bit of atmosphere. Atmosphere is what they do.
Here’s a video taster for this tour: http://vimeo.com/67679907
There are still tickets available. And I have two spares, which I would be grateful if someone could take off my hands – message me if you want one (or two).
