Björk announced three shows to be held with a live audience at Reykjavík's Harpa Hall this August.

With Iceland now reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, the matinee concerts, are scheduled for the 9th, 15th and 23rd, and will take place at Harpa Hall with a live audience. Each show will be acoustic and feature different Icelandic musicians Björk has collaborated with over the years. Together, they will perform fresh versions of her songs.

As of June 15th, visitors to Iceland from the EU and Schengen states must either be swabbed for COVID-19 at the airport or enter into 14-day quarantine.
