Sigur Ros @ BEacon Theater

Right before CMJ, Sigur Ros played two nights (Sept 12-13, 2005) at the Beacon Theater in NYC. Mike Neuman was in the front row the first night. He snapped these pics.

* Pitchfork gave Takk a 7.8.
* Stylus says it's much better than that.
* Order Takk at Insound.

Yeah, sorry these pictures suck. I almost got kicked out for taking them, even though I only used flash at the very end. There actually are some better ones that BV didn't post...

sorry to say but i wish that they had thrown out all the people using flash photography. the number of flashes that evening was ridiculous and, also, really rude to sigur ros and the rest of the audience.

I only used it during the bows and "thank yous", not during the performance.

that's nice to hear. i have no problem with it during the standing ovations. i wish everyone with a camera or cell phone that night was that considerate.

Just went to the Sigur Ros Concert at Massey Hall Toronto - May 13th-06 -- Fabulous!!!
Most fans there did not take pics with a flash.
People are generally pretty respectful when asked not too and most already know why. The fact that Sigur Ros allows video cameras and cameras at all speaks volumes.
All we need is a self appointed concert cops in the audience pissing people off, to make them use a flash or take to many pics when they were asked not too.
Sigue Ros did not announce that they did not want flashes used, and so most could have but simply chose not too.
Lighten up my friend or you will be the fuzz at the next show. People pay good money to see thier "Idols " " let em eat cake " now and then.
