With the recent success of his solo record, Go, the ensuing tour and the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe’s We Built A Zoo, much of Jónsi’s focus has been on his solo career. Although, Sigur Rós released the live DVD/CD inni, in 2011, they have not actually toured as a band in over three years.
It looks like that is about to change. Sigur Rós will play Bestival on the Isle of Wight September 9 alongside artists like The XX, Orbital, Spiritualized, Gary Numan, The Horrors, Hot Chip, Adam Ant and tons more.
Although this is to be their only UK date, the band has promised that more tour dates for 2012 will be announced soon.
