Sigur Rós return to Australia this month, performing at Splendour in The Grass, Sydney’s Hordern Pavillion and Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena. Further tour details below.
Having being made aware of recent comments by former tennis player Margaret Court, the band decided to commission a special t-shirt celebrating positivity and inclusion, with proceeds going towards Australian Marriage Equality.
The band approached London-based illustrator Andrew Rae to create a special crest, who says “What an amazing commission, combining awareness about marriage equality with the amazing Sigur Rós in a hand drawn crest to raise money to support Australian Marriage Equality… of course I’m saying yes.”
Sigur Rós add: “We know Margaret Court’s opinions are not shared by the majority of Australians. We want to add our voice to the call for marriage equality in Australia — right here on Margaret Court Arena itself. Australia should be a country that celebrates positivity and inclusion, as well as achievement on the sporting field.”
