“Bon Iver have bestowed experience to craft an emotional tour-de-force that displays an unparalleled understanding of the power of music” 5/5 DIY

Today the band have announced a full European tour with arena shows including at London‘s Wembley Arena. This will be their first UK tour since 2018 which included an eight night sold out residency at London‘s Hammersmith Apollo and will follow on from their headline slot at All Points East this summer. These shows are their most ambitious to date as they bring their brand new live show to Europe for the first time.

Recorded mostly at Sonic Ranch in Texas, i,i finds Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon in a calmed creative state that he channels into the heart of each of the album’s 13 songs.
