News: Sigur Rós Release Tee-Shirt in Support of Marriage Equality


Iceland's Sigur Rós are set for a big July, with Splendour in the Grass fast approaching, as well as their sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney.

There's been a lot of controversy surrounding Margaret Court Arena lately, especially after Margaret Court's hateful comments against the LGBTIQ community. Artists who have played the arena recently have voiced their opinions on the former tennis player's remarks — including Ryan Adams who called the venue 'Marriage Equality Arena'. 

Sigur Rós will be selling t-shirts at their shows that celebrate positivity and inclusion. All proceeds from sales will go to Australian Marriage Equality.

In a statement, the band say "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."

The shirts can be purchased at their gigs. For international fans or fans not attending, you can purchase the shirts from sigur-ros.co.uk and bandtshirts.com.au.

Gig dates:
Tue 25 Jul – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney  
Thu 27 Jul – Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne *SOLD OUT*
