Audience Q & As are the worst.  Endless people taking the mic to then not even ask a question but just make rambling statements about being big fans.

Just got back from a screening of Distant Sky. Highly recommended if you get a chance to see it - Nick on top form. I can't wait to see him at APE in June.

Hm I didn't bother because I thought it was a straight up concert film of a concert I've near enough seen but the reviews suggest a fair bit more than that is going on. I'm sure there'll be a DVD/streaming release forthcoming.

I see the band have graduated to arenas in the US as well. This late-career ascent is pretty bewildering but he's working it alright.

It is just a film of the concert but very well shot and edited, the close ups show the emotions that Nick is going through which you certainly wouldn't see unless you were right at the front. It's probably the nearest to a being there film I've seen (I think that makes sense); I wanted to applaud and whoop at the end of of each song as if I was there, but with typical English reserve I managed to restrain myself but somewhat regretted it afterwards.

Having read the reviews I kind of regret going, but I just dont think I would have enjoyed it so much sat still and quiet in my seat. And considering I'd have been watching somewhere in london moving or making any noise would have been out of the question...

very surprised to see this jump, although it's only the NY, LA, and Toronto markets that's he's given it a go, Wash DC is a smaller one. will be interested to see how full those will be.

The screening was in an 80 seat independent cinema and I felt I might be a little conspicuous; I suspect everybody else felt the same. I wonder what would have happened if one person had been brave enough to go for it?

He wasn't running, no! Just walking in a very cool manner. I said hi, he said hi back, acknowledged my baby, which probably makes her in the top 5 coolest babies on planet earth now, especially as she was deemed "nice". Talked about having seen Distant Sky, said that the setlist was immense. Talked about going to see him this summer and having seen this tour in Detroit. He liked these things, then we said taraa!

Can't decide whether to go to Vic Park; the setlists are looking a tad downbeat/latest album heavy. Not sure it's London festival-pleasing stuff, having listened to a load of people talk over Sigur Ros previously at Vic Park!

The upcoming festival tour hasn't started yet, so these setlists aren't representable. 

In fact, these Q&A shows are acoustic affaire, so it's logical that majority of songs aren't upbeat.

It'll be amazing, there's no doubt about it. I reckon the only song off the new album they'll play at the festival will be Skeleton Tree, which is joyous live..

Okay, good points guys - back to the drawing board!

If you’re wanting to leave it until much closer to the time then I imagine the setlist will be pretty much the same as the one they do at Primavera a few days before.

I see the cave day comfortably sold out while the other days are still struggling. I think the "but they are not big enough to headline glastonbury!" tits can safely crawl back under their rocks. 

This is proof they are big enough and their records are proof they are good enough. They'd be the last great glastonbury headliner. It must happen for the sake of the festival, judging by the other options mooted in the 2019 headliners thread.
