Damien Rice to Play in Iceland

Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice will hold four concerts in Iceland on November 4-5. The concerts will be so-called open-recordings and Rice plans to use the recordings of the concerts for his next album.

The concert venue will remain a secret until a few hours before the concerts begin and only 90 people will be able to attend each concert, Morgunbladid reports.

“Once he has finished playing he is going to give the audience a chance to chat and ask questions. So it will be a cozy and up-and-personal experience,” said the concerts’ organizer Kári Sturluson.

“[Rice] has been here often, both to play and to relax. He likes it here, where he seeks energy and artistic inspiration,” Sturluson stated.

“Therefore he wants to come here to record both audio and video with an Icelandic audience, hoping that some of the songs will be of good enough quality to be included in his next album. So he will perform some songs for the first time,” Sturluson explained.

Ticket sales will open shortly.
