Bjork – new tour

April 14, 2008

Bjork’s English tour, which kicked off in Manchester on Friday, is attracting rave reviews, notably this in the Da1ly Telegraph:

Ms Gudmundsdottir has reportedly forsaken a greatest hits show in favour of an in-depth exploration of Volta, the current album.  Which is exactly what a musician for grown-ups should do – greatest hits gigs are for adolescents (of all ages).

 

Watch this space – as I gear up for my first Bjork show, in Plymouth next week.

Bjork’s English tour starts tomorrow

Bjork’s starts her short English tour, in Manchester, tomorrow.  She then plays seven more dates over the next three weeks.  I’ll be reviewing the 22 April Plymouth show. 

 

I haven’t seen the diminutive Icelander before, but she’s been a favourite on CD for years – her refreshing artistry marks her out as one of the leading musos for grown-ups of her generation.
