Björk U.S./Canada Tour Dates Announced

posted by on March 19 at 11:24 AM

Bjork.com has just announced upcoming tour dates for the U.S. and Canada. Seattle’s never been too lucky when it comes to Björk. She played at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds in ‘95. And in 2003, when she played at the Pier, the monitor/soundsystem was a tad shittay (she even mumbles as such in the pirated recording), so she didn’t even do any encores.

But this May will see her play Vancouver on the 23rd and Sasquatch a few days later. You’d better believe I’m headed to both. Bjork.com will also be providing a presale on tickets 48 hours prior to the public sale.

Oh, hay. And check out the first promotional shot for the new album:

I’m pretty sure this isn’t exactly the cover of the album (the pattern has been for the album to be a straight-on shot of her), but I mean… Tribal nu-rave crochet? Of course! And those flames spell out Volta, with the “T” topped off with the beginnings of Björk’s name. If anyone’s an Earth Intruder, it’s Miss B.

Now if only a track would leak.

Don't start with me, Segal. :)

I know my Björk fandom is faggoty, but like, if it weren't for her, I'd still be listening to opera and En Vogue.

How long before nu-rave crochet look hits Urban Outfitters?

Nick, I'll show you my Björk boxed set if you show me yours.
Seriously, I know a lot of straight guys into Björk... and they like her music, too.

Nick,
what's wrong with en vogue?
