Björk at 3Arena, Dublin: Everything you need to know
Setlist, stage times, tickets and more for the Icelandic performer’s ‘most elaborate stage concert yet’
Björk Björk: promising a “sci-fi pop concert”
Björk’s immensely acclaimed Cornucopia show, her first theatrical production, pivots around her 2017 album, Utopia. Of course, theatre has rarely been absent from the Icelandic performer’s outlook, but this time around she described it as her “most elaborate stage concert yet, where the acoustic and digital will shake hands, encouraged by a bespoke team of collaborators”. Further defining it as a “sci-fi pop concert”, there is (as throughout Utopia) an environmental theme running through the show, including a video message by Greta Thunberg. Advance reports of the state-of-the-art production have been hugely positive, which is understandable – there ain’t no show like a Björk show, after all. – Tony Clayton-Lea
