Julianna Barwick Cancels Headlining North American Tour for Sigur Rós Opening Slot
Published Aug 12, 2013Loop specialist Julianna Barwick had previously planned a fall headlining tour in support of her latest album, Nepenthe, but now she's axed those plans in favour of an opening slot for starry-eyed Icelanders Sigur Rós.
This is bad news for Canadian fans, since the change of plans comes at the expense of Barwick's lone date in our country. She had been slated to play Toronto on September 26, whereas the trek with Sigur Rós is entirely in the U.S.
Barwick apologized for the cancellations on Facebook, writing, "Hey everyone, I'm really, really sorry to cancel the upcoming headlining US dates (September 19 - October 5), but I have the amazing opportunity to open for Sigur Rós, one of my all-time favourite bands, on their North American tour. I hope to make it up to all the people and cities and venues who worked so hard on those shows as soon as humanly possible. hope you all understand."
Nepenthe is out on August 20 through Dead Oceans. The recently premiered video for "One Half" is at the bottom of the page.
