Venue Change for Sigur Rós
This morning, the good people over at the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center announced that they will be moving the location of the upcoming concert for the Reykjavík, Iceland-based Sigur Rós on Wed. Sept. 25 at 7:30 p.m. from the Coliseum into its smaller sister site, the PAC.
If you’ve already purchased reserved seating tickets through Ticketmaster.com or over the outlet via the phone, expect to be contacted by Ticketmaster Customer Services in the near future. You will be automatically reissued new reserved tickets within the same price level as the original ones. But if you purchased your tickets at the Coliseum box office or any Ticketmaster outlet in person, you will need to exchange your tickets at that same point of purchase. If you already have general admission tickets in hand, you’re good to go — your tickets will still be honored as general admission the night of the show.
Honestly, over here at Metronome Charleston, we’re not terribly surprised by this news. Though Sigor Rós — with current lineup singer/guitarist Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson, bassist Georg Hólm, and drummer Orri Páll Dýrason — is extremely loved and well respected by a dedicated group of loyal fans in America, they’re not exactly an easy mainstream market sell, and the Coliseum is, after all, a super-sized venue. But this is definitely news for the better, as it will make for a much more intimate experience that more closely matches what one would expect of the band’s minimalist, dreamy aesthetics.
Tickets are still available at the North Charleston Coliseum ticket office and all Ticketmaster locations, ticketmaster.com, or by phone at (800) 745-3000 and run between $45-$29.50 (plus applicable fees).
