Everyone's favourite Icelandic pop sprite comes to London with her 'Biophilia' live show, which premiered in Manchester two years ago. Björk isn't to be underestimated – although it's easy to forget that she's one of the most powerful and inventive female voices working in music today – and 'Biophilia' is an excellent example of why: as well as Björk's ever-astonishing shrieks and croons, the project's shows in the past have featured large all-female choirs, huge video screens, pipe organs, a 'gravity harp', a Tesla coil and narration from David Attenborough. At this Alexandra Palace performance, the whole thing will be staged in the round, with the audience surrounding the stage, and the set list should include most of 'Biophilia' – an intriguing, offbeat and supremely pretty avant-garde pop album – as well as older material. Tickets are pricy, but you won't see or hear anything like this in London again for a very long time.
