To celebrate the release of their new album Kveikur, Sigur Rós will play a selection of songs from the record live during a special 360-degree interactive webcast from Dresden, Germany.
During the show, which will be broadcast live on Wednesday 19th June, fans will be able to take control of the 360 cameras that will be placed around the stage, and watch the show from whichever angle they choose.
The webcast will see Sigur Rós performing 5 tracks from Kveikur and will feature a series of firsts. This will be the first time ever Sigur Rós have performed current single ‘Isjaki’ live. It will also be the first time most of these songs have been officially broadcast live in any form, the band previously having performed only the album’s title track in front of the cameras (on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon shows). And of course, it will be the first time fans have had access to this level of viewer interaction during a filmed Sigur Rós live performance.
To engage with this one-off interactive performance, fans should head to www.sigur-ros.co.uk/kveikurlive360 on Wednesday, with the band due to take to the stage at approximately 7.50pm BST
Released this week, Kveikur is Sigur Rós’s first album since signing to XL Recordings worldwide. The album was self-produced by Jón Ãžór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason, having become a three piece following the departure of Kjartan Sveinsson last year.
