NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Icelandic experimental rock band Sigur Rós has announced a new leg of North American tour dates for Spring of 2017, including a stop at Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on May 21, 2017.

Continuing the experiment begun this year, the group will be performing as trio, eschewing the string, brass, and other auxiliary musicians that have been a hallmark of live performances the past decade. Once again they will be touring without a support act, performing two career spanning sets (separated by an intermission) starting from 8 p.m. sharp at each show.

As with the previous tour, this run is largely comprised of theater shows.

Tickets for Sigur Rós will go on sale Friday, December 16 at 10 a.m.

Seats in the Orchestra ($69.50-$99.50) will be available as well as in the Balcony ($39.50-$69.50). American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, December 13 at 12 p.m. through Thursday, December 15 at 10 p.m.
