There’s been a run of great music arriving in Asheville lately (and there’s always more to come), but a lot of folks are excited about Sigur Ros playing the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville on Saturday.
You can buy tickets to Sigur Ros here.
You can win tickets here by leaving a comment in the comments section of this blog post.
Need to know more about Sigur Ros? Here’s a tidbit from a recent edition of Indy Week:
Sigur Rós has reached these strange new heights by never forsaking the unquenchable power or grandiose textures of their music even as they’ve moved toward more conventional song structures. This year’s excellent Kveikur pushes back into the stratosphere, with pieces that hang again like mighty amoeboid monsters, waiting to overtake any new space they find. Let’s hope municipal officials ease off decibel limits for a night, so that one of the best live bands in the world can rattle the city. —Grayson Haver Currin

I would love to see Sigur Ros! Such a great band, but tickets are so expensive. Please pick me and make my year! Haha
I remember the only way possible to buy an early Sigur Ros CD, was as an import.

Sigur Ros is my all time favorite band and I can’t afford the pricey tickets to this show. If I won a ticket that would make my year !
I wonder if the nature of my comment effects the possibility of me being chosen.
Alan, the nature of your comment does not, in fact, affect the possibility of your being chosen.
Would love to hear what all the hoopla is all about, pun intended!!
Pick me and I will upgrade your bookmark status to homepage.
PLEASE pick me! I have four children and desperately need a night out listening to this amazing band! Please please please!!! *flutters eyelashes*
Pick me. It’ll make my wife happy.
Car troubles hindered us from buying tickets. Would really love to go! Music is more fun than cars anyways.
One day my loyal readership will pay off!
well that sure ain’t Merle Haggard
I love Sigur Ros!
I’d love to win these tickets for my fiancee! She loves Sigur Ros!!
Sigur Ros is highly underrated. People need to listen.
ME PLEASE!@!! Broke preschool teacher here… I would love to see the guys!
I want to go!
Hook me up! Would love to win some Sigur Ros tickets.
Yes! Sigur Ros in AVL!
This is going to be an amazing night!
I remember seeing Jonsi at Moogfest and I have been hoping for a stop by the always stunning Sigur Ros! I read they will be playing with a large touring band as well, so I’m sure the sound will be incredibly full inside the space.
Was hoping to see Sigur Ros, but not too pleased with the remaining seats available so haven’t pulled the trigger.
Now if I could win them, that would be quite a birthday present. 🙂
Though the show won’t be quite as intimate as the 2001 show in Philadelphia where I saw them the first time. 🙂
*blames auto correct* ashvegas
I love Ashvagas the most, therefore I should win. <3
Sigur Ros is phenomenal! Woot!
Lucky enough to Sigur Ros about seven years ago in Raleigh- would love to see them again.
Gonna be epic. Hope I can afford to go
I want tickets! <3
hey! pick me!
