Bon Iver Unveils North American Tour
Published May 09, 2011Beloved folkie Bon Iver is gearing up to release his sophomore LP on June 21 via Jagjaguwar. Once that self-titled set drops, the songwriter also known as Justin Vernon will support it with a North American tour.
The outing has 16 dates in total, stretching from July to August. There will be one Canadian date on August 8 in Toronto.
Along the way, Vernon will be joined by an eight-member band. This includes a three-piece horn section that will help him recreate the intricate soundscapes of his new album. This large lineup reflects the guest-heavy approach Vernon took on the upcoming LP, as he previously said, "I brought in a lot of people to change my voice -- not my singing voice, but my role as the author of this band, this project."
