The Sigur Ros rocks Louisville

Last night, amazing! Sigur Ros is truly one of the most talented, unique bands of our time and seeing them live met and exceeded my expectations.

The Brown Theatre was made up of a very young crowd, I was happy to see the future generation respect such a great act. Througout the show I was transfixed on everything going on on the stage. Drummer, piano, keyboards, a 4 piece mini orchestra, flute, lead guitar being played with vilolin stick, bass (one song was a drumstick playing the bass).

Exceptional, all around.

There were no words at this show, no thank yous, jsut respect. During one song the band and everyone in attendance froze for what I swear was at least 20 full seconds, nobody breathed. And then the song continued seamlessly.

At the end, after a long bow, theatre style by the musicians. The lights stayed dim and everyone expected the usual encore song or two. Everyone came back out by only for another bow, and that was it. Perfect.....

I give the show a 5 out of 5 stars. If you ever get the chance to see Sigur Ros, do it!

I also bought Von and a Von remix cd...

Simply amazing.......

Wow, sounds great.

Makes me want to listen to some Sigur Ros in honor of your experience.

I hope I'll be able to see them live sometime.

I wanted to go here in Boston, but I had no one to go with. I wasn't about to go to a concert alone. Sigh...

Were they selling "Von" and the "Von Brigši" (their remix CD) at the concert?

Nice pics, but I was expecting those suprise "Sigur Ros getting dressed/brushing their teeth/using the toilet before the show" pics.

How disappointing Elvis.
