After playing a handful of dates across the United States earlier this year, including a highly anticipated appearance at San Francisco's Outside Lands festival, Icelandic group Sigur Rós have announced a full-scale North American tour for the spring of 2013.
The tour includes a headlining date at New York City's Madison Square Garden — but even more interesting about these newly announced dates is the noticeable lack of a Southern California concert. For all those Los Angeles Sigur Rós diehards about to plan trips to one of the band's other American stops, don't get too ahead of yourselves. These dates, if anything, point to something much more exciting.
The gaps in Sigur Rós' tour schedule in mid-April hint that the band is a likely addition to the 2013 installment of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, slated for the weekends of April 12 and April 19. We're not promising anything here, but it's safe to assume Sigur Rós will bring there ethereal, dreamy tunes to the Polo Grounds this year.
