Sigur Ros @ Manchester Apollo, 16 September 2017

Such is the interest and respect Birmingham Live has for a band like Sigur Ros, we are willing to break free of our immediate borders and travel north.  The band has not graced our city since 2005; the closest they came on the last tour in 2013, was Wolverhampton.  I don’t know what we did […]
