"This project began with a single person, but throughout the last 11 years, the identity of Bon Iver has bloomed and can only be defined by the faces in the ever growing family we are." - JV22
Bon Iver have also announced a new slate of North American tour dates for September and October, including Barclays Center in Brooklyn, The Forum in Los Angeles, and more bolded below. The larger scale of touring reflects the growing community around the band in both recording and live performance and invites the audience to gather for an exciting new production. To further the growing community, Jenn Wasner, of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes, will join Justin Vernon, Sean Carey, Matthew McCaughan, Michael Lewis, and Andrew Fitzpatrick to form the Bon Iver live band. Feist, Indigo Girls, Sharon Van Etten, and Yo La Tengo will support select dates. Tickets are available here at 10am local time on Friday, June 7th, following an artist presale from June 5th, 10am local time, to June 6th, 10pm local time.
