Björk Serenades Denmark in Giant Worm Dress

The Icelandic singer wore an ensemble of black tubes, thrilling the crowd with a 17-song set filled with tunes old and new.

She’s the pop star who makes Lady Gaga look like she shops at Loehmann’s.

Icelandic art-rocker Björk, 46, commanded the headliner spot at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival this weekend, emerging onstage encased in a tangle of black, worm-like tubing. The dress was the creation of Dutch avant-garde fashion designer Iris van Herpen. A multi-colored hawk’s nest of a wig was perched atop her spritely features, now showing some age.

Björk’s main set, a multimedia visual feast, consisted of 15 songs, oscillating between familiar hits like "Hunter" and "Isobel" and newer songs from her 2011 release Biophilia — songs like "Virus," "Mutual Core," and show opener "Cosmogony."

The two-song encore consisted of "One Day," from her first solo album Debut, and "Declare Independence," a rousing cry of rebellion off Volta.

More photos of the performance are available at bjork.fr.

Watch Björk perform "Virus," from Biophilia, in the audience-shot video below.
