Bon Iver has decided to take a break from making daisy chains and singing hummingbirds to sleep (which is what we can only assume he does in his spare time) and visit our shores for what's bound to be a great gig.
The singer and his band are always best enjoyed in an indoor setting, and that's what fans will get as the show will be on in Dublin's 3Arena on Sunday, May 3 2020. This will actually be the first time Bon Iver has played indoors in Ireland in eight years.
The announcement comes just a few weeks after the release of the band's fourth album, entitled 'i,i'. It's the last in what's been a seasonal cycle of albums that began with 2007's 'For Emma, Forever Ago' (winter), followed by 2011's 'Bon Iver' (spring), then 2016's '22, A Million' (summer) and culminating in the most recent autumnal 'i,i'.
Support for Justin Vernon and co. will come from The National's Aaron Dessner's Big 37d03d Machine.
Tickets, priced €49.50 standing and €54.50 seated, will go on general sale this Friday, September 13, at 9:00am from usual outlets.
Various pre-sales begin on Wednesday and Thursday on the Ticketmaster website and run up until 8:00am on Friday.
The Dublin show is the final date on Bon Iver's European tour.
