Björk will host a string of three concerts in her native Iceland on Aug. 9, 15 and 23, raising money for one of the nation’s women’s shelters.
And while it could be some time until other nations see live performances again, Iceland has boasted one of the world’s lowest death tolls from COVID-19, holding firm at just 10 individuals.
The U.S. – by comparison – has endured 127,000 fatalities related to the virus – a number that increases daily. According to The New Yorker, in responding to the crisis, Iceland “hadn’t just managed to flatten the curve; it had, it seemed, virtually eliminated it.”
The shows will be hosted (and livestreamed at) Reykjavík’s Harpa Hall.
