Handsome Tours is proud to announce that Bon Iver will return to Australia and New Zealand in March and April 2021 with a spectacular arena show in support of their latest, highly-acclaimed album i, i.
Led by Justin Vernon, the tour represents Bon Iver’s first visit to Australia since the outfit headlined VividLIVE in 2016, selling out four Sydney Opera House Concert Halls. It is their first visit to Auckland, Wellington, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane in nine years.
Featuring a full band and immersive new production, these shows will be their most ambitious Australian shows to date – unlike anything fans have seen before.
In August this year, Bon Iver released their fourth studio album i,i, garnering an ecstatic response. Singles from the album went straight onto global streaming and radio playlists whilst Justin Vernon and the band opened up more than ever before with in-depth interviews from Pitchfork, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Q and Uncut.
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. The core band for the i,i sessions included Sean Carey, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Mike Lewis, Matt McCaughan, and Justin Vernon with Rob Moose and Jenn Wasner, plus contributions from James Blake, Brad and Phil Cook, Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Bruce Hornsby, Channy Leaneagh, Naeem Juwan, Velvet Negroni, Marta Salogni, Francis Starlite, Moses Sumney, TU Dance, and many others. i,i completes a cycle: from the winter of For Emma, Forever Ago came the frenetic spring of Bon Iver, Bon Iver, and the unhinged summer of 22, A Million. The northern hemisphere’s autumn marked Bon Iver’s most expansive, joyful and generous album yet.
