Björk’s advertised concert series in Reykjavík in June has been cancelled due to production problems. All concertgoers will have their tickets refunded.

Irresolvable production issues

In February of this year, Icelandic singer Björk announced plans to hold a series of concerts at the Laugardalshöll Stadium on June 7, 10, and 13.

As noted in an article on Vísir, the concerts were to last two hours and feature music from her albums Utopia and Fossora. “This is the biggest show that Björk has ever done and will boast one of the more numerous assembly of digital screens on a single stage.”

Yesterday, however, Björk announced that she was calling the concert off. “There have been problems with the production of the concert that we do not expect to be able to solve in time. We realise that this will disappoint ticket holders and apologise for the inconvenience this may cause,” a press release from Björk states.

“We are determined to do everything we can to prevent this from happening again and will review our processes with this in mind. We still hope to find a way to make the concert a reality next year. However, as it may take weeks or months to resolve all technical and logistical issues, we are forced at this point to cancel and refund.”
