Sigur ros - Icelandic Opera House - Reyjkavic 12.06.1999

Sigur ros - Icelandic Opera House - Reykjavik 12th June 1999 - FM Broadcast

An absolute classic SR show.

Here are the notes from the original uploader:

This is a stellar early show from the band. I think this version may have been uncirculated, or atleast virtually uncirculated until recently. It came about from a thread on the sigur-ros.co.uk forum about this concert. One of the moderators of the site said he had a clean soundboard version of this concert. He was asked to upload it so it could be checked against the hissy FM version thats widely circulated. This is the version we have here. Huge thanks to bjössi for unleashing this version!

It marks the last appaearnce by the original drummer ágúst, and the first by amiina as the string accompaniment.

I have removed the two tracks from this concert which were included on the Svefn-G-Englar ep and it seems this is the same source used for these released tracks.
As mentioned above, there does exist a quite well circulated FM version of this which is quite hissy - this is a huge upgrade on that.

sorry to be so nit-picking but...
you give two different dates in the post: 12th June and 6th June. the concert is (for sure) from the 12th
(Icelandic Opera House, Reykjavík).
i hope you don't mind my obsessive accuracy...
btw, thank you for all music you put up here. i've been dreaming about a place like that.
only drawback is that evil rapidshare... it doesn't always work in the proper way. and i know i doesn't work at all for some people.
thanks anyway,

Oh my GOSH! Thank you so much for this site and thank you for this show. I had the FM version and, you are right, it was too hissy for me to really enjoy it and, not to mention, it is missing that absolutely AMAZING version of Hafssol at the end. This is a must download for any Sigur Ros fan!
