Background and concept

On May 6, 2019, Björk began the Cornucopia Tour, initially conceived as a residency show for The Shed in New York City. The tour, defined by critics and by the singer herself as her "most elaborate stage concert ever", reached also Mexico City for five dates in August, and finally Europe for eight stages between November 13 and December 8, with a total of fifteen sold out shows.

Cornucopia production had already reassured that the tour would start again in the second half of 2020, but in February 2020 a new production was announced, the Björk Orchestral Tour, for a series of more intimate and less scenic concerts: "Unlike Cornucopia's elaborate theater production, on this tour the Icelandic singer will focus on acoustic string arrangements of all her previous works."

Crocus City Hall (Moscow), Hartwall Arena (Helsinki), Waldbühne (Berlin) and La Seine Musicale (Paris) where Björk will perform

On February 12, a first stop was already announced for July 26 at the Bluedot Festival in Cheshire, England, as "an exclusive orchestral concert", "a unique commissioned performance, alongside the Hallé Orchestra of Manchester". The other four stages and details on the new production were instead revealed on February 25. In particular, Live Nation Finland affirmed that "the locations of the tour, with only six concerts, have been carefully selected".

The premiere of the Björk Orchestral Tour is announced at the Crocus Music Hall in Moscow on July 2, 2020: it will be the first Björk concert in Russia after almost seventeen years; the last one was on July 17, 2003 for the Greatest Hits Tour. Then will come the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, the Waldbühne amphitheater in Berlin, La Seine Musicale in Paris and finally the Bluedot Festival.

For now, we know that Björk will be joined on stage by the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia (NPR) in Moscow, by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester in Berlin and by the Hallé Orchestra in Cheshire.
