Sigur Rós, yesterday. I was way too early and it was cold outside and a spider fell in my book and blah blah blah. Either way: I managed to get right in front
, slightly left from Jónsi. I bought myself a t-shirt and then the waiting started. I had a nice chat with the people around me.
The support act was a Icelandic band called For A Minor Reflection and I loved them. Bought their album afterwards and they all signed it for me and were just generally very nice people.
More waiting. And then: SIGUR RÓS.Setlist
01 Svefn g englar
02 Ný batterí
04 Við spilum endalaust
06 Með blóðnasir
07 Inní mér syngur vitleysingur
12 Gobbledigook (with the guys from For A Minor Reflection on drums)
13 All alright
It was just magical. Jónsi's voice is insane
. At the end of Svefn g englar he held this really high note for a really long time. They played Ný batterí, which is my current favourite Sigur Rós song, so ZOMGYESPLEASE! Við spilum endalaust makes me really happy as well.
Hoppípolla getting into Með blóðnasir with the singing was awesome as well. Then the songs that came after this was just one HUGE highlight for me. E-Bow, Sæglópur, Festival (when a girl right behind me fainted. It was ridiculously hot in the venue as long as you weren't first row), Hafsól (which I taped, see behind the cut) and then Gobbledigook, which until then I hadn't really liked live, but I thought it was fantastic when I saw it with my own eyes.
Then the encore. All Alright was magical. Jónsi did something with his hands, while singing, which was one of the most beautiful things ever.
Popplagið blew my mind. SO GOOD. I loved everything about it and then the big confetti canon at end: AWESOMENESS. I've taped this one as well.
So, all in all: what a fantastic gig! I love this band SO much. It felt really surreal to hear such a large about of pretty :Dall my pictures( to the videos! )
