Bjork has revealed plans for a live residency in a circus tent in Paris.

The four 'Biophilia' live shows will take place in February and March of next year at Le Cirque En Chantier, a specially constructed circus tent on L'Ile Seguin, an island on the Seine in the French capital.

For the special shows no audience member will be "more than a few meters from the stage."

Bjork will then play two shows at the indoor arena, Le Zenith. She will be performing 'in the round' and is the first artist ever to do so at the venue.

Tickets for all shows go on sale December 10. For more details, visit: avosbillets.com

Bjork will play:

Paris Le Cirque En Chantier (February 21, 2013)
Paris Le Cirque En Chantier (24)
Paris Le Cirque En Chantier (27)
Paris Le Cirque En Chantier (March 2)
Paris Le Zenith (5)
Paris Le Zenith (8)


Bjork recently revealed that she has cured the vocal problems which have plagued her in recent years by undergoing surgery.

The Icelandic star was forced to cancel a number of live dates in Argentina, Spain, Portugal and Brazil to promote her 'Biophilia' album earlier this year.

Posting an update on her official website, Bjork wrote:

"A few years ago doctors found a vocal polyp on me chords. I decided to go the natural way and for four years did stretches and tackled it with different foods and what not. Then they discovered better technology and i got tempted into hi-tech laser stuff and I have to say, in my case anyway: surgery rocks!"
