Björk announces Cornucopia arena tour


Björk has announced the Cornucopia arena tour, commencing in Lisbon, Portugal in September of this year. Concepted upon Björk’s last album ‘Utopia’, Cornucopia debuted as a residency show at NYC’s The Shed, receiving stellar reviews, with Rolling Stone commenting that it was a ‘spectacle of cutting-edge sound and image’.

The new Cornucopia show sees the original stage show of her catalogue music, reworked to include music from her current Grammy-nominated album ‘Fossora’.

“cornucopia was always intended to be a world for both utopia and the album after that…
which is now out there called fossora . so i am truly excited to premier those 2 worlds colliding, this autumn in southern Europe,” – Björk

Cornucopia includes digital visuals created by media artist Tobias Gremmler, Andy Huang, Nick Knight, M/M, stage design by Chiara Stephenson, the flute septet Viibra, clarinet players, a harpist, percussions, electronics and a number of bespoke instruments implemented in the innovative surround sound stage design including a custom reverb chamber.
