  1. The show last night was incredible!!! I’ve been a fan for almost a decade but have never had the chance to see them live, and they certainly did not disappoint. It lived up to all my expectations and then some. I’ve thought about the show all day and have been listening to Takk and Kveikur nonstop. I can’t wait to see them again whenever they are near me, even if it involves a road trip. It is most definitely worth it. The 11 piece ensemble was incredible with the horn and the strings sections. An incredible 2 hours of music. They ended the show with Popplagið, an amazing 15 minutes of musically mastery. Definitely the best ending to show I’ve ever been to. I can’t say enough about how great it was, but I doubt if someone is reading through these reviews, they are on the fence about going to see them live. But you should, and I can’t wait to again.

  2. Thank you for such a wonderful show, words cant even begin to describe. It was nothing short of amazing!
    It was my first time seeing Sigur Ros live, and will not be the last. Best show I have been to!

  3. What a show! I’m shocked more people didn’t attend. Their loss. My first Sigur Rós show and my first show at the Ted Center. Couldn’t have asked for more. The sound was superb – loud but the right kind of loud (drums were epic, but you could still hear the strings and horns), song selections were just what I wanted to hear, brilliant light show. Outstanding effort by all involved, but especially Jónsi. I can’t believe he sounds that good even in concert. I had goosebumps from the opening notes and was in ecstasy when they played Glósóli. The tour closer Popplagið nearly killed me with delight. I don’t know how I’ll go back to normal life.

  4. The show was well worth the wait. Normally after seeing a band I need to take a break, but not this one. I’ve been on YouTube viewing/listening and playing SR every day since the show. Go to the show.
    At the next show, please, please, please: 1. Play an encore..Yeah we were a small crowd, but very much wanting another song, and 2. more lighting on the band not in my face. Wouldn’t say it if I didn’t care. Just wanted to see them better.
    David was right, the sound was impressive. And how long did Jonsi hold that note?

  5. I’ve seen them 3 times in the past 8 or so year. Each show has been different (first time Amina played backing orchestra parts, second time they were just a 4 piece, and this time with the horn and string section).

    This one was the most powerful and rocked out for sure. The more brash stuff on Kveikur really drives the set. That said, I miss the more melancholy aspects of the older shows – not a single song off of AB was played, for instance. I’m not complaining, it’s just a very different show now than it was. Fantastic, but I didn’t see anyone around me openly weeping as I have in the past.

    The venue sounded great. Little note – saw the guys at the sound board taking a bet. I’m 99% sure it was to see if people who cheer during Jonsi’s extended vocal note in Festival. They did. At the other shows people would sit in absolute silence. The first time I saw them the silent pause in Haysatan was about a full minute and no one made a peep. I always thought that was amazing – how they could be so captivating that people would just sit silently riveted. So to me, this crowd wasn’t the best.

    That being said, Popplagið is worth the price of admission alone. I always tell people not to leave before the last song and I don’t think I oversold it a bit – they absolutely crushed it this time as always.
