Tickets for the concert go on sale tomorrow (May 18) at 12 p.m. ET through the Bjork site. The site hints that the performance may be the first "in a series of appearances all over the world."
"Vespertine," due Aug. 28, is the follow-up to 1997's "Homogenic," which debuted at No. 28 on The Billboard 200. The new album was produced by Bjork with Spike Stent, and includes contributions from Matmos and writer/filmmaker Harmony Korine ("Kids," "Gummo), who co-wrote the track "Harm Of Will." The set will be preceded this summer by the single "Hidden Place," for which a video is also being shot.
Bjork won the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival last year for her starring role in "Dancer in the Dark," and was also nominated for best actress at the Golden Globes.
