The Icelandic band is in the midst of a world tour and has taken the time to address the tennis star’s controversial comments with a statement of their own.
“Our next Melbourne show is set to take place on July 27th at Margaret Court Arena,” said Sigur Rós. “Our fans and friends have made us aware of recent comments by Margaret Court regarding her opposition to Qantas’s support of same sex marriage in Australia, and her wider views on race and sexuality.
“We want to add our voice to the call for marriage equality in Australia – right here on Margaret Court Arena itself.”
Sigur Rós has also designed a t-shirt to sell at their Melbourne and Sydney shows and at Splendour in the Grass with the proceeds going toward the support of Australian Marriage Equality.
“Let’s make July 27th Margaret Court Arena’s most inclusive night ever and call for every Australian to have the same dignity and respect right here on centre court.”
