BON IVER Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

Last week Bon Iver released a new iTunes Session (click HERE to stream its version of “Beth/Rest”) and picked up the award for Independent Album of the Year at the inaugural Libera Awards curated by the American Association of Indepedent Music.

Today we’re happy to announce new dates along the Eastern United States, including two additional dates in New York at Radio City Music Hall. Anais Mitchell will open for most of these dates.

Much has been said of Bon Iver’s transformation into a nine-person live band. The Miami New Times in a recent live review, captures the essence of this magic particularly well: “Often, live music is an attempt to approximate something captured in a studio. As exceptional as Bon Iver’s recordings are, Bon Iver in concert is an entirely different creature. By turns defiant and pliant, pained and triumphant, with Bon Iver, the songs are not merely live but living.” Check out the full list of tour dates below.
