Back in January, it was announced that Jónsi & Alex Somers planned to perform their collaborative 2009 album ‘Riceboy Sleeps’ live in London this summer. Now, the pair have announced three additional UK shows to help celebrate its tenth anniversary.
The album has only previously been played at a Manhattan show at St Paul the Apostle Church in 2010, and will now be played during five shows across the UK and France.
They’ll also be joined by the London Contemporary Orchestra who will be conducted by Rob Ames, after the show was arranged for orchestra by David Handler.
The dates are as follows.
06 Philharmonie de Paris, Paris
08 Barbican Hall, London (Sold out)
11 Usher Hall, Edinburgh
12 The Sage, Gateshead
14 Manchester Opera House, Manchester
Tickets for their new shows go on sale this Friday 15th March.
In November of last year, Jónsi released his ‘lost’ triple album, ‘Frakkur 2000-2004’.
