Björk kicks off European tour in Lisbon in September
Tickets will go on sale on Friday
Icelandic singer Björk will start the “Cornucopia” tour in Lisbon, at the Altice Arena, on September 1, the artist announced this Monday.
“’Cornucopia’ has always been meant to be a world, whether to [o álbum] ‘Utopia’, either for the following album, which is now out there and is called ‘Fossora’. Therefore, I am excited to debut the collision of these two worlds, in autumn, in southern Europe”, can be read in a publication on the artist’s social networks.
The series of concerts begins in Lisbon, followed by performances in Madrid, Paris, Milan, Prague, Vienna, Bologna, Krakow, Hamburg, Leipzig, Zurich, Nantes and Bordeaux.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday at 9am, according to the posted message.
The Icelandic artist performed in Portugal in 2003 at the Meco festival in Sesimbra, with two concerts canceled since then, at Primavera Sound and at the Paredes de Coura festival.
Singer, songwriter, producer and actress, Björk is one of the best-known artists in the Icelandic cultural scene, with a career in music that began when she was still a child.
Alongside the projects with which she collaborated, Björk edited mainly albums in her own name, of experimental artistic pop, with a strong visual component more pronounced at the turn of the century, such as “Homogenic” (1997), “Medúlla” (2004), ” Biofilia” (2011) and “Vulnicura” (2015).
In 2017, he released “Utopia”, followed by “Fossora”, released in September last year, including tributes to his mother, Hildur Rúna Hauksdóttir, who died in 2018.
