Bon Iver: UK and European Tour Dates 2022 Dates, Calendar, Events & Parties
Bon Iver have postponed their UK and European tour dates until next year.
The shows, announced in support of the group’s fourth album ‘i, i’, were originally planned for 2020 but were pushed back to January 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis. Last summer, the tour was delayed again until October/November 2021.
Today (July 8), Justin Vernon confirmed “after careful consideration of the fluid situation of the pandemic” that the concerts will now take place in the autumn of 2022. “The ongoing uncertainty around international travel and restrictions make any kind of international touring impossible,” he wrote.
On the heels of its first performances in more than two years over the weekend in Los Angeles, Bon Iver has revealed details for a 2022 U.S. tour. The first leg of the trek begins March 30 in Mesa, Ariz., and wraps April 15 in Miami. It resumes June 3 at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, N.Y., and concludes June 25 in Asheville, N.C., with a previously announced European run on tap for October and November.
The Justin Vernon-led group will be supported on the U.S. dates by Dijon on the first leg and Bonny Light Horseman on the second. The latter act features longtime Vernon collaborator Anais Mitchell, who most recently worked with Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner on their summer album “How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last?”
The tour will coincide with the March 25 release of a 10th anniversary special edition of Bon Iver’s acclaimed album “Bon Iver, Bon Iver,” which includes five stripped down songs performed by Vernon and bandmate Sean Carey at AIR Studios in London in October 2011. “Bon Iver, Bon Iver” won Best Alternative Album at the 2012 Grammys.
Bon Iver celebrated the album by performing all 10 of its tracks on Friday and Saturday at L.A.’s YouTube Theater. The group also debuted the song “PDLIF,” which was released in the spring of 2020 to benefit COVID-19 relief efforts.
