She'll be the first 'popular' artist ever to appear there...

BJÖRK has confirmed to NME.COM details of her eagerly awaited appearance at the LONDON ROYAL OPERA HOUSE.

The Icelandic star, who has already made two London appearances this year at St John’s, Smith Square (August 29) and The Coliseum (September 23), will be the first pop artist to perform at the famous venue, on December 16.

Tickets for the show go on sale this coming Sunday (October 14) at 10am, priced between £30 and £75, and are limited to two per person. A special ticket line will be active from this date, which is 0207 304 4003. Fans are requested not to call before this time.

Björk has spent much of the autumn touring unusual venues across the world to promote her current album, ‘Vespertine’. Details of the scheduled appearance at the Opera House were first leaked to the press earlier this year. The venue itself reopened in December 1999 following a £200m refurbishment.

A new single, ‘Pagan Poetry’, is released on November 5.
