Following their stunning performance at the Airwaves festival last month, it was announced today that UK synth-pop duo Hurts are to play at Reykjavik’s Vodafone Stadium March 20 next year.
The concert is part of the promotional tour for their album ‘Happiness’ which has been receiving raving reviews worldwide since its release in September. Their first single ‘Wonderful Life’ has also been a huge international hit. The Manchester duo’s much hyped performance at Airwaves 2010 was one of the festival climaxes and garnered much positive media attention.
Such is the bands love affair with Iceland that they recently shot the video to their third single, ‘Stay’, with the country’s beautiful landscapes duly providing the perfect backdrop to the bands evocative electro sound.
Tickets for the concert go on sale December 1 through www.midi.is.
