The orchestral series will see the composer performing with different collaborators on each of the four dates, including members of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, the flute septet vibra and the Hamrahli Choir.
The gigs, which were previously scheduled to take place in August 2020, to a live audience at Reykjavik’s Harpa Hall and to fans around the world, have been delayed several times.
Now, as Iceland begins to fully reopen for live shows following the coronavirus pandemic, new dates have been announced for all shows. Here are the new dates and lineup for each gig
Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, with strings by conductor Viktor Orri Arnason and harp player Katie Buckley (formerly 29 August)
Hamrahlið Choir, with conductor orgerður Ingólfsdóttir, and organist Bergur órisson (formerly 5 September)
With brass from the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, flute septet vibra, harpist Katie Buckley and pianist Jonas Sen (formerly 12 September)
The strings are accompanied by a 15 piece chamber from the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and conductor Viktor Orri Arnason (formerly 19 September).
The show is being performed in collaboration with Kvennaathvarfid, a charity that supports women and immigrants of various origins within Iceland. Livestream tickets can be found Here.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Björk was confirmed as the first name for Bluedot Festival 2022. She was due to play the 2020 edition before its coronavirus-enforced cancellation.
She will join The Halle Orchestra for her performance at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Jodrell Banks Observatory. The show will also feature a unique visual display as video and animation are projected on the iconic, 76-meter-wide Lowell Telescope.
