Today, Sigur Rós, probably Iceland’s most famous and critically-acclaimed band ever (well, there’s also Björk), announced a huge North American tour for the spring of 2013. The band spent most of 2012 touring the world in support of their latest release, “Valtari.”

This tour includes a stop in Colorado for the first time since the dream-pop group played a nearly sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2008.
