We reported back in March that one of last year's most successful debut artists, Bon Iver, would play in Galway's Big Top as part of the Galway Arts Festival. Details have taken their time coming, but it has now been announced that tickets priced €35.50 will go on sale next Tuesday 12th May at 9am. It appears that this will be Bon Iver's only Irish show this year, so even more reason to move quickly.

The American folkster, who broke the mainstream with his subtle and elegant debut album "For Emma, Forever Ago" and its follow up EP "Blood Bank," will play The Big Top at Fisheries Field on July 23rd.
