11th August 2020 | Category: Concerts

Björk has recently announced a series of performances at Harpa Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland on August 9, 15, and 23. Iceland has reopened from the coronavirus pandemic, so people can attend in person, however, the shows will stream live, too for those who can’t show up.

The shows have now been postponed, due to coronavirus restrictions. The first of four dates is now set for Saturday, August 29, with three to follow on Sunday, September 13; Saturday, September 19; and Monday, September 28. Here’s a message about the postponement:

“Following on from last week’s announcement that the Icelandic government has re-imposed tougher restrictions on gatherings due to COVID-19, the decision has been made to move the first three dates of the Björk Orkestral concert series.”

Bjork has said the performances are to honor “folks who got hit hardest in the coronavirus and the black lives matter movement” and “how many icelandic musicians i have worked with through the years.” She’ll be joined by Icelandic musicians at each, and each will focus on different albums from throughout her career. Proceeds will go to Kvennaathvarfið, a charity in Iceland that supports women and immigrants of all origins.

The musician has also said this about the shows:

“we are going to celebrate that we are all healthily exiting quarantine together by playing concerts in harpa music hall for 3 weekends of august

i feel we are going through extraordinary times

horrifying but also an opportunity to truly change

it is demanded of us that we finally confront all racism

that we learn that lives are more important that profit

and look inside us and finecomb out all our hidden prejudices and privileges


let´s all humbly learn together


humongous love
