jónsi (from Sigur Ros)

Just came from the first jónsi tour stop in Vancouver, and was blown away. I didn't know what to expect, with the jónsi album released today, but it was up to the very high creative standards of a Sigur Ros show.
It was a musical and visual tour-de-force, with lots of stunning original effects.

If you haven't experienced Sigur Ros, I'd describe jónsi as a combination of Radiohead, Phillip Glass and "Where the Wild Things Are". Check it!

"jónsi kicks off his north american tour in vancouver tonight. he will be joined by a four-man band (alex, úlfur, þorvaldur and ólafur björn) and as you may have gathered from the previews on , the live show experience of this tour promises to be something special. jónsi has teamed up with the stage show company 59 productions to put together the most amazing live experience possible, bringing together the worlds of theatre, animation, art installation, film and music."
