Sigur Ros: light show at the Eden Project

Beams, Sigur Ros at the Eden Project

Sigur Rós live.

Totally awesome.

We had doubts about seeing the band live. Would it work? Would the music work in a live environment?

Ideally, you’d see them in the middle of nowhere… somewhere in Iceland, on a grey and misty day.

As it was, the Eden Project was the perfect venue. Outdoor. On a cold and slightly rainy evening. Not far off how I imagined it should be in my head.

It was… mesmerising, magical and sometimes harrowing. Always atmospheric.

Jónsi singing in both Icelandic and hopelandic. Such melody.

And a superb light show to go with it.

Extremely special… and without doubt, one of our best gigs ever.

Early afternoon, there were a few other bands playing in the Mediterranean Dome… and pre-Sigur Rós, on the main stage, we had Daughter (not bad)… and the discovery of the year… Willy Mason. So good. I’ve subsequently bought Carry On and spend most of my days humming to Pickup Truck and singing along to Talk me Down.

So good.
