Sigur Ros to perform for Dalai Lama

Band will play at his public talk on Tuesday in Iceland

Sigur Ros are set to perform for the Dalai Lama when he gives a public talk in Reykjavik next week.

They will perform without singer Jonsi Birgisson as he will be in London working on a solo record.

The band will play their 2002 orchestral collaboration with composer Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, ‘Odin’s Raven Magic’.

As previously reported, the band are currently recording the follow up to 2008’s ‘Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust’, and aim to release the record sometime in 2010.
