BON IVER

BON IVER ANNOUNCE 2020 AUSTRALIAN +
NEW ZEALAND TOUR

First national tour since 2012

Fourth studio album 'i,i', out now on Jagjaguwar via Inertia Music

PRAISE FOR i,i

"Listen closely and you can hear the language of pop being redrafted in real time" - 5/5 The Observer

"Indispensable" - Sunday Times ‘Album of the Week’

"Bon Iver has pieced together this fourth album in an impossibly intelligent way" - 5/5 NME

"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

"Hearing is believing in an artistry for this or any age" - 5/5 The Sun

"Brimming with ideas, textures and the creative heft of its contributing cast" - 8/10 Clash

"[Justin Vernon] sounds human and vulnerable — and more appealing for that reason" - 4/5 Evening Standard ‘Album of the Week’

"Vernon is one of the sonic architects of our times" - 4/5 The Telegraph

"i,i cements Vernon as a serious-minded songwriter who conveys deep feeling through poetic imagery and stark melody" - 4/5 The Times

"Perhaps the most complete Bon Iver album to date" - The Line Of Best Fit

Handsome Tours and Dark Mofo are proud to announce that BON IVER will return to Australia and New Zealand in June 2020 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 eight years and will also feature a headlining set at Hobart’s Dark Mofo festival.

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.
