Bjork to Perform 6 Shows in NYC + Governors Ball
To coincide with the release of her upcoming album, Vulnicura, Bjork has just announced a series of six NYC-based shows scheduled for this spring. The first will take place on March 7 at Carnegie Hall, with more performances at the iconic venue on the 14th, 25th and 28th. She will then play at the New York City Center on April 1 and 4. Joining her is producer Arca, who will be there to perform the new album with the Icelandic Singer.
While Bjork is no stranger to the road–she spent 2011 to 2013 on the Biophilia Tour–ticket prices for the 49-year-old singer are at an all-time high. Fans paid an average of $174* to see the singer back in February 2012, during her residency at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. For her upcoming NYC residency, ticket prices are nearly two-times that, at an average of $309*.
Keep in mind this isn’t the only appearance Bjork is making in the Big Apple this year. As we learned several weeks ago, she will also be headlining the Governors Ball Music Festival (June 5 – 7) for the first time since 2012, joined by Drake, Lana Del Rey and Florence + the Machine. For folks looking to get the most musical bang-for-their-buck this year, it might make more sense to get a Governors Ball ticket, as 3-day GA passes will cost you $300 even after fees and shipping.
