Awesome, would love to win this prize! I am going to the second show, and really looking forward to it. Driving through Iceland a few years ago, it was easy to see where they get their inspiration, and how fitting their music is.
can we skip the contest and just give me the prize pack? 😉
Oh My GOD!!!! I love Jonsi! I can’t afford to buy tix, so I would love the chance to win this!!!!
My love for Sigur Ros definitely extends to Jonsi. I would love to win the prize pack!
Sounds like an interesting band. Actually my type of music.
If he puts on a show half as good as Sigur Ros does it would still be an epic, amazing night.
Sounds – and looks – amazing.
That’s a great prize pack. If it’s have as good as the Sigur RÃ³s stuff it should be amazing
My boyfriend already has a ticket and I really want to go too but thought the ticket was kind of expensive. It would be so great to join him and have a magical islandic music experience.
enjoy the show of JÃ³nsi, a great performer ^^
It looks absolutely amazing! I can’t wait for it.
*fingers crossed* over winning tix!
I’m with David – If JÃ³nsi is anywhere near as good live as Sigur RÃ³s is, this is not a show to miss!.. and with the addition of the prize pack, how could it get any better? 🙂
I super love the new Jonsi CD, it is pure magic <3
Pretty sweet that you’re adding tickets to the prize pack. I wanted to go, but thought the tickets were kind of expensive for my budget (it was spending all that money on Olympic wear and the Olympic sale, I tell you!!). I hear the set design for the stage will be amazing to top off his performance!
I love Jonsi!!! Hope I win!
Love Sigur Ros and Jonsi. Would love to win this.
Yes, please. :*)
<3 Sigur RÃ³s!
I discovered Sigur Ros & Jonsi when I lived with an Icelandic girl in 2005 on an exchange in Helsinki. It opened me up to a world of music not common in Canada. My first time seeing Sigur Ros was at the Werchter Festival in Belgium with my Icelandic friend. What a night! A sea of people humming hopelandic/icelandic with a backdrop of sunset … Was lucky enough to see them 2x in London in 2008 and this past October, I was finally able to make it to Iceland! The band has had a heavy influence on me as now I’m a Canadian girl addicted to Scandinavia (altho Iceland is technically not …) It’s also an expensive habit of shuttling back & forth!
The Jonsi tour will be mellow, yet deep, leading to a climax at the end. Was in London last week for a visit and I answered an ad to be in a Jonsi vid. Long story short, it turned out to be his 1st live dress rehearsal for the tour! I couldn’t get tickets to Jonsi in Vancouver since I booked my travels before the tour was announced and it was out of my budget. Please buy his album when it comes out and support him 🙂 I hope I win but if not, anyone who does will have a fantastic experience!
Went to Iceland a couple years ago. Love the country and love Sigur Ros!
My bf is a huge fan! Would love to surprise him with tickets! Thank you for this opportunity!
For those looking to hear the new album in its entirety, it’s up on NPR.
Me me me!
What a great package!
Such a beautiful voice.
OOoooh, I want all those things! JONSI!
This would be a DREAM come true!
Man, I’ve missed Sigur Ros in concert no less than 4 times for various reasons. Which is all the more upsetting because my wife Angela and I actually met because of their music and the band has a profound meaning to us both as individuals and as a couple. Oh and their music is pretty darn amazing too. Whomever wins this prize pack is in for a real treat.
ahh I’ve always wanted to see sigur ros !!!
I’d love to win this!
wow – this would be a perfect date for my boyfriend. I always wish i had went and seen Sigur Ros when they played a church here in Vancouver… i didn’t know what they sounded like, and now kick myself for not going. From what i’ve read about this show – it sounds like something quite different from a typical ‘band’ show… i really respect Jonsi and his boyfriend Alex’s clever endeavors with music and art. This would make a great surprise for John – thanks for the opportunity to win tickets. cheers.
I just submitted an entry for this contest.. but not sure it went thru. damn… well… i’ll try again… I think Jonsi and boyfriend Alex are a great couple and inspiration musically and artistically. cheers!
I’d love to go to the concert!
Love this, thanks Rebecca! Please enter me in the contest!
This would absolutely make my week … possibly even my year! Please put my name in the hat for the draw .. Cheers
I just listened to Go on NPR.com – lovely. This prize pack would be even lovelier though. 🙂
Please enter me in the draw for Jonsi tix!
pick me! pick me!
I have never done this before. 🙂
I would love to see this show!
If it’s not too late, I want in on this one!
Cool prize … wonder if Iceland is still bankrupt, or nearly so?
