Björk at Radio City Music Hall

What a weird, awesome woman

So Bill & I went to her Radio City Music Hall show. I expected she would be doing mostly songs from her new album, Volta. So I was pretty pleased when she essentially ran through the greatest hits, sans “Hyperballad” which is probably my favorite Björk ever so that was disappointing.

She came out with the same horn section that she did for her recent Saturday Night Live appearance.

This was the setlist:
“Earth Intruders”
“Venus As A Boy”
“Aurora”
“I See Who You Are”
“Oceania”
“Dull Flame of Desire”
“All Is Full of Love”
“Pleasure Is All Mine”
“Pagan Poetry”
“Joga”
“Where Is the Line?”
“Army of Me”
“Innocence”
“Wanderlust”
“Pluto”
“Anchor Song”
“Declare Independence”

I’m always amazed at how powerful her voice is and how she’s been able to maintain it it. Especially when she says “thank you” after every song with a voice of a ten year old at a spelling bee and is dancing around stage like Abigail Breslin in Little Miss Sunshine.

The funniest moment was when some fan tried to get on stage and dance along with Björk. Radio City Music Hall security does not fuck around. That guy took two hops on stage before he was taken down and dragged off the stage on his stomach.

All and all, a great night.
