Further shows will follow in Helsinki and Berlin, along with a two-night billing at Paris’ Seine Musicale venue.

Björk will then return to UK shores to play her previously-announced headline show at Bluedot Festival, which takes place at Cheshire’s iconic Jodrell Bank Observatory. The festival appearance will see Björk perform alongside Manchester’s historic Halle Orchestra.

Tickets for the Björk Orchestral tour will go on general sale this coming Friday (February 28) at 10 am. You can purchase them here.

Björk Orchestral tour dates are as follows:
02 July Crocus Music Hall – Moscow, Russia 
06 July Hartwall Arena – Helsinki, Finland 
09 July Waldbühne Open Air – Berlin, Germany 
17 July Siene Musicale – Paris, France

Reviewing Björk’s Cornucopia show in London last year, NME wrote: “In its most audacious moments, [the concert] works wonderfully, disrupting your expectations and giving you something even better.”

Described as “breathtaking” by fans, the show also included a message from environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg. The words “Imagine a future. Be in it” were simultaneously projected across the stage.
