Björk makes Biophilia date at Alexandra Palace

Gigs & Festivals


Björk is taking centre stage (and I mean that mathematically, since it’s an ‘in the round’ show) at London’s Alexandra Palace on 3 Sep in what’ll be her final ‘Biophilia’-based live date of its kind in Europe.

It’ll be the first time the Palace has been adapted to have an artist encircled by the audience, with Björk’s site stating that it’ll also be an “emotionally significant show for Björk herself, who called the city home in her youth”. All of which is quite nice.

Tickets are on sale as of today, so nab a pair now.

This is what ‘Biophilia’ track ‘Thunderbolt’ looked like when Björk did it live back in 2011:
