Bon Iver - Bon Iver Releases iTunes Session and Announces Tour Dates
Bon Iver : Bon Iver Releases iTunes Session and Announces Tour Dates
19th June 2012

Bon Iver have now announced the remaining six dates to be added to their European touring this year alongside the release of a special seven track iTunes Session EP.

As anyone who's witnessed them will attest, hearing Bon Iver live is, quite simply, all consuming. A vivid and powerful display, they bring a new complexion to the records which bears repeating. Having toured consistently since their second album's release, the band are next in Europe this July and August for a long run of mostly festival shows. They are also returning for a two week tour of arenas in November and today are confirming that there will also be shows in Madrid, Milan, Copenhagen, London, Manchester and Dublin.

Tickets for these shows will go on sale on Friday 22nd at 9AM GMT and a special pre-sale allocation will be available from 9AM on Wednesday 20th via CrowdSurge. Please see below for all touring with the new additions in bold.

Shortly after the release of Bon Iver, Bon Iver, Justin and band stopped into East West Studios in West Hollywood on the invitation of iTunes to spend a day in a room together putting the many-layered dynamism of the live show to tape. The result is a subtle re-imagination and invigoration of a collection of timeless songs, performed by a band made up of singularly distinguished musicians, encapsulating but one epoch of the Bon Iver life cycle. With seven tracks recorded including a cover of Björk's 'Who Is It?', it's great news that The iTunes Session EP is finally available to buy - please click here.
