Björk announces one-off gig

Björk has announced a one-off gig at London's Alexandra Palace on September 3.

This will be the first time the Icelandic singer has brought her long-running Biophilia Tour to the British capital and a post on her official site branded it "an emotionally significant show for Björk herself, who called the city home in her youth".

Björk's Biophilia performance will be the first ever "in the round" show at Alexandra Palace and the singer's final "in the round" performance in Europe. Tickets will be available from 9am tomorrow (June 12) and prices start at £65 each.

The singer kicked off the Biophilia Tour with a seven-date residency at Manchester's Campfield Market Hall in June 2011 as part of the Manchester International Festival. The tour's only other UK show to date was at Bestival that September.
