    Hands down the best concert I’ve ever been to, was beautiful, amazing. I feel thankful to be alive in this moment for me to be here for this. I needed this reminder of how wonderful Life can be, thankyou.

    Utter pretentious nonsense. Sounded like four people who had never met before, playing their instruments in the hope that some music would happen. They might as well have been making it up as they went along.
    I was waiting for an “emperors new clothes” moment where someone else in the sycophantic crowd would rise up and shout out “this is actually shite!”.

    Shouldhave Savedmycash, clearly went to the wrong venue. Backstreet Boys were on at the Arena mate.

    Easily the best gig I’ve ever been to. Mindblowing.

    And I hope the review above is satire because if it’s not you need help.

    Outstanding. The walls of sound genuinely moving. Nice one.

    This was my birthday present to my wonderful man after a really tough year for us.
    He’s followed SR since their inception in the 90s, and is a huge advocate of their abilities, artistic merit and inspiration.
    I on the other hand knew zero about them, and I have VERY mainstream music tastes- Metallica, Iron Maiden, U2 etc. All of whom I’ve seen live.
    Therefore, I have a comparator here.
    So I’ll admit I was apprehensive but went with an open mind. First couple of songs I was thinking “Mmm OK, nope not for me’ but as the set progressed, I was captivated.
    The skill of the band was unrivalled, the lights hypnotic and the graphics perfectly matched to the set.
    It got progressively harder, louder and more industrial metal….vocals were haunting and ethereal, base… well let’s just say you could feel it!
    Drums boomed, adrenaline surged and I’m delighted to say it was an epic, artistic, raw emotive performance.
    Words can’t express the experience I had and I will be a fan now!
    Wiped the floor with commercial bands for a live event and in such an intimate venue, all in all was a perfect night!
    Thank you Sigur Ros!

    The 10th time of asking, and it was incredible, was so good to hear so much of the ( ) album, I bought that album the week it came out, and I know it sounds cliché, but it changed my life, I never knew I’d be visiting Iceland in 2017 to see them

    10th time of asking, and I’ve never grown tired of watching Sigur Rós live, I originally bought the ( ) album the week it came out, and I know it’s a cliché to say, but it changed my life. The concert in Manchester on the 8th was incredible, a real celebration of an album, and band that I love, thank you Sigur Rós

    A fantastic celebration of the ( ) album, my favourite album, and the one that got me into the band in the first place, was great to hear Smáskifa, and Untitled #8 remains the best song I’ve ever heard live
