Performing now as a three-piece - JonsA Bergisson , GoggA Holm , OrrA DA1 2rason - following the departure of longtime member and primary keyboardist, Kjarri Sveinsson, the Icelandic band carried the whole of the show alone, a marked change from past tours that have included augmentation by several additional backing players on strings and other instrumentation.
