Sigur Rós fans are a cultish, worshipful bunch in the first place. Still, it was impressive to see so many of them walk out of the Roy Wilkins Auditorium on Wednesday with astonished looks on their faces as if they had just seen the second coming. At the very least, they saw a resurrection of sorts given that the Icelandic rockers went on extended hiatus after the last time they came to town in 2008 at the Orpheum.
