    Sublime . . .
    With deepest Gratitude for your music!

  6. Patrick says:

    very appreciative to have been part of last night. I have been fortunate enough to have seen you guys a few times now- including at home in Iceland. Each song has a certain feeling or mood attached to it- that just seems to consume you in concert. I left speechless and very grateful! Thanks again!

  7. S says:

    Light, sound, and pure magic. The opening piece gave me chills and nearly brought me to tears…

  8. N. says:

    I’ve been wanting to see you guys for years now, and I finally had the chance to go to this show… So many emotions….I was and still am speechless. Thank you for making a magical night that I’ll never forget.

    It was such an amazing experience hearing them live. Truly a spectacular night, I have absolutely no words to describe it! Never been a huge fan of any thing… but these guys… WOW! I love their music so much!! It moves me to tears. I feel so connected to it and I love how visual and emotional it is, it makes me see, feel and understand things differently. I cried the moment Jonsi started singing. The concert was perfect in every way, they covered music from all of their albums and I was very happy to hear them play a lot of my favorite songs. I feel so lucky to have been part of such an evening and for being able to see them perform just a few feet away from me!

    The third time in seven years i have had the chance to see you guys and yet you cease to amaze me. tears came to my eyes, and thank you.

  11. Jmac says:

    Amazing show. Just fantastic. Does anyone have the set list? Thanks for sharing if you do!

  12. Sandy Peery says:

    It was magically breathtaking, their music has always been this way to me!

  13. t. says:

    phenominal performance, amazing light show and visuals. Sigur Ros never ceases to amaze me. the only negative was the douche(s) in the audience who would yell randomly during a song. not cool.

  14. Best experience of my life. I’ll never forget this incredible evening.

  15. hannah says:

    most amazing. this was my first concert and i will never forget it! takk, sigur rós!

  16. Paul says:

    Wonderful show. Best band in the world. Where was the keyboardist?

  17. Peter says:

    I did miss Kjarri. Wish he would have been there. However, still an amazing show. Jonsi’s voice never ceases to amaze and the dynamic between the band members was electric.
    Great set list. The new album really translated well live, I was curious how that would look.
    Wish the guy who kept whooping during the show at random times would have stayed home.
    Please come back soon Sigur Ros! Seattle needs you.

  18. Amber says:

    Such a mind blowing show! I seriously feel blessed that I was able to photograph the show, let alone attend it. My review & photos can be found at:

    Much much love for you all!

  19. Ari says:

    Indescribable, this was my first time seeing you guys. I really like the live-experience you create, with all those extra wind and string instruments. Keep up the good work. Please visit Northern California again.

  20. Robin says:

    Drove down from Vancouver for the show. Loved every second of it. Incredibly beautiful sights and sounds from the large ensemble. Happy that you brought the extra musicians along. The sound was perfect at the Paramount. And those completely silent moments were mystical experiences. Thank you Sigur Ros.

  21. Brian R says:

    Since I’ve been a fan for seven years, I wasn’t too concerned about travelling over 2000 km to see this concert. It cost about $1100 for my girlfirend and I to attend [the ticket-buying experience was a nightmare.] It was well worth it. Too bad there’s no chance they would ever play in the northern Canadian prairies – a landscape that resonates with much the same energy as Iceland.

  22. Skye Bergen says:

    Seeing Sigur Ros live was incredible. The emotional wave of sound changed me forever! The set design and lighting meshed perfectly with the music. The show was so intense- many of us had tears rolling down our faces and huge smiles at the same time. Thank you for everything!

  23. Lindsey says:

    What an epic show! Sigur Rós you never cease to amaze or inspire. If words were enough to say how much you have influenced me…

    Thank you.

  24. Beth Gay says:

    Gorgeous music coupled with ethereal visuals made for an emotional experience. The lack of lyrics and defined images allowed each audience member to experience an entirely different show from the person standing next to them. Because the music was so boundless and undefined, you saw pieces of yourself in it. It was amazing to see an entire stage of people work as a single unit to produce a two hour set of phenomenal music. Untitled #8 was especially unforgettable. I am thankful to Sigur Ros for sharing their talents with the rest of us.

  25. patrick says:

    This is the set list according to something i see on – this looks pretty accurate based on my recollection, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who loves the music but doesn’t know the song titles as well.

    Thank you very much. My son and I were there at the Paramount. The show was beyond our expectations, and those were already VERY high to start with! The acoustics of the venue were superb. We cried, as we were touched at a level of our being that can only be termed spiritual. we love you!
