Now a three piece band, Iceland’s Sigur Rós are coming to North America for a full fledged arena tour. You can pick up tickets from Ticketmaster for many of the dates that follow below from this link. If you aren’t already enticed, consider that the band could possibly preview material from their reported 2013 album (news on that is over at the band’s official site).

As announced in the press release, “The Beatles’ acclaimed original studio album remasters, released on CD in 2009 and in 2010 for digital download exclusively on iTunes, will make their long-awaited stereo vinyl debut on 12th November (13th November in North America).”

In celebration of this massive release, PopMatters has a chance to offer one (1) lucky winner a set of three remastered stereo vinyl records, Help!, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and A Hard Day’s Night plus a bonus t-shirt!

Australia’s Xavier Rudd is coming to the US for a tour in October and November and PopMatters has partnered up with this surf/roots musician to give one lucky PopMatters reader a prize pack consisting of his album Spirit Bird on vinyl AND a limited edition t-shirt (you can check out the image of the shirt below).
