Bjork Australian tour forVivid Live 2012?

LOOKING FOR THE VIVID 2012 LINEUP? IT’S RIGHT HERE!

Update:
Sadly Vivid LIVE festival director Fergus Linehan has confirmed that “On this occasion, as you can see from her schedule, there are no plans for Bjork to perform at Sydney Opera House in 2012. Needless to say, we’d love to welcome her back at some stage in the future.” [via The Music Network ]



Could Australian tour dates be on the card for Bjork to headline Vivid LIVE 2012 at the Sydney Opera House? If a sneaky Google AdWords campaign is correct, the Icelandic songstress might be bringing her groundbreaking Biophilia project to Sydney as part of the 10 day celebration of ambitious popular music that runs from 25 May to 11 June 2012.

Google AdWords that pointed towards the Vivid LIVE website appeared yesterday correlated next to search terms on Google, including “Bjork Australian tour 2012”, “Bjork Australia” and “Bjork Vivid”. As of today, those AdWords terms had been switched off.

But it gives us a glimmer of hope that Bjork could be bringing the multimedia tour that the Guardian called “the future of the entire music industry” to Australia. According to her official tour dates, there is a gap between shows at Sonar in Brazil on May 12 and Primavera Sound Festival in Spain on May 30 where Bjork could squeeze in a few Opera House dates.

Last week we speculated on the clues in the teaser video, with some FL members commenting that the video looks “very Bjorkish”.

On top of the acts already announced, the official Vivid LIVE Line Up announcement happens this Thursday. Can we dare hope?

so awesome if its true.... though it will be a shit fight to get tixs, even if they use the Opera House Forecourt to increase the capacity

I don't think any acts did shows out of Sydney last year, but well worth the trip to Sydney to catch 2 or 3 shows.

Sure did. Azari & III, 2manydjs and some others also played other shows.

I'd love to see Bjork come and play QPAC, but I'm pretty sure this will be a Sydney exclusive like The Cure Reflections shows last time.
We'll probably get some of the other crumbs though...

But didn't she play a headline set on the opera house forecourt that same tour? She was great at GC BDO but if I lived in Sydney I would have done the sideshow instead for sure!

crob

crob said on the 12th Mar, 2012



i could imagine the side show would have sold out pretty quickly... many would have missed out

humanracin

humanracin said on the 12th Mar, 2012



yeah true, the same will happen when this show goes on sale, hopefully the scalpers stay away.

crob said on the 13th Mar, 2012
