Björk has announced the “Cornucopia” arena tour, which will begin in Lisbon, Portugal, in September. Conceived on the basis of Björk’s latest album “Utopia,” “Cornucopia” debuted as a show in her artistic residency at The Shed in New York, receiving stellar reviews. Rolling Stone called it “an avant-garde sound and image show.” The new “Cornucopia” puts on a show reworked to include songs from his currently Grammy-nominated album “Moat.”
Cornucopia was always intended as a world, both for “Utopia” and the newly released album “Moat.” I’m really excited to premiere these two worlds colliding this fall in southern Europe.
“Cornucopia” includes digital imagery created by media artists Tobias Gremmler, Andy Huang, Nick Knight, M/M, set design by Chiara Stephenson, the seven Viibra flautists, clarinettists, a harpist, percussionists, electronics and a range of custom instruments implemented in the stage’s innovative surround sound system that includes a custom reverb chamber.
