Following a run of utterly compelling live shows, Jónsi is set to release ‘Go Live’ – a live DVD/CD package that allows you to witness the stunning aural and visual masterpiece of his recent worldwide tour.

Jon Thor Birgisson, more commonly known as Jonsi from Sigur Ros has officially announced his Splendour In The Grass sideshows in Australia.
Jon Thor Birgisson, enigmatic singer of Iclandic group Sigur Ros and one-half of side project Jonsi & Alex has revealed that he is to release his first solo album, Go, on March 12 next year.
