Icelandic Band Valdimar on First Overseas Tour

The Icelandic band Valdimar is currently touring Europe, their first concert tour on foreign soil. The sextet from Keflavík, Southwest Iceland, is playing seven concerts over ten days, five in Germany and one each in Switzerland and Austria.

Lead singer Valdimar Guðmundsson told that the concerts would be held in very different venues, from theaters to private homes.

When asked if the band was named after the lead singer, Valdimar replied that all famous bands from Keflavík end with the word ‘mar,’ for example Hljómar and Hjálmar.

The band currently performs in Icelandic only.
