Depuis ce vendredi, les tickets sont disponibles à la vente sur le site de l'Atelier.
L'artiste islandaise sera au Luxembourg le 16 novembre 2019 à la Rockhal dans le cadre de son Cornucopia Tour.
Seulement huit représentations sont prévues en Europe dont deux sur le continent. La première s'est déroulée au printemps à New York.
Björk proposera un concert d'envergure, sa production la plus élaborée, entourée d'un chœur, d'un design éclectique et digital, le tout accompagné par ses costumes légendaires. Un show immense, auquel les organisateurs du concert à la Rockhal ont hâte de participer.
Les tickets sont en vente à partir de ce vendredi sur le site de l'Atelier.

About the Creative Team:
Björk is a multidisciplinary artist who, time and again, innovates across music, art, fashion, and technology. From writing, arranging and producing an expansive music catalog, to escapades in virtual reality and digital apps, Björk continues to inspire and experiment, redefining the boundaries of how a musician works.
Lucrecia Martel grew up in Salta in Argentina’s northwest, fascinated with what she calls the “world of conversation,” which fueled her eventual passion in telling stories through cinema. She began directing short films in 1988, including the award-winning Rey muerto (Dead King) in 1995. From 1995 to 1998, she made a series of TV documentaries, as well as a children’s program. Her so-called “Salta Trilogy,” for which she gained international renown, began with La Ciénaga (The Swamp) in 2001, voted the best Latin American film of the decade in a poll of New York film critics and scholars. La niña santa (The Holy Girl) followed in 2004 and La mujer sin cabeza (The Headless Woman) in 2008. Nearly a decade later, her fourth feature, Zama, an exploration of colonialism and racism, premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in 2017.
