Sigur Rós to Perform 'Kveikur' Tracks Today in 360-Degree Webcast
Published Jun 19, 2013This week marks the release of the new Sigur Rós album Kveikur, and the Icelandic dreamweavers are celebrating the occasion by performing some of the new tunes for a live webcast today (June 19).
The concert, which is being filmed in Dresden, Germany, slightly resembles Beck's recent David Bowie cover in that fans can control the camera during the interactive 360-degree performance. To achieve this, Sigur Rós have 360 cameras set up around the stage.
The band will play five cuts from Kveikur, and according to a press release, it "will feature a series of firsts. This will be the first time ever Sigur Rós have performed current single 'Isjaki' live. It will also be the first time most of these songs have been officially broadcast live in any form."
The webcast will air today at 2:50 p.m. EDT (double-check the international times here). When the time comes, watch the webcast here.
